This week’s question is a what if.

Over the course of history for the United States men’s and women’s national teams, we’ve seen some incredible players take the field to represent our country. We’ve seen tenacious defenders, agile goalkeepers, creative midfielders, and prolific strikers. However, we’ve had some players whose time on the national team were cut short due to injury, another health issue, or for other reasons.

So, which one of those players was the biggest what if for you? Which player do you think would have had a legendary career and gone down as one of the greatest ever had injuries or something else not cut short their career? You can pick a USMNT player or a USWNT player, or perhaps you have one of each. Let’s look back to those players who we enjoyed so much when they took the field but we were robbed of a full career.

Hit the comments and let us know which player was the one you thought had a career taken from them much too soon.
