Sometimes, questions are presented simply and they have simple answers. When it comes to the United States, there are many simple questions that may have those answers that everyone agrees with. However, when discussing the best of the best that America has to offer, the soccer bars or, in this pandemic, the soccer Zoom calls will light up with debate.

Because when it comes to the best American player, people can take it several ways. Some think it means the best by pure talent. Some trend towards selecting a player they think is the most successful on the field, where the stats back them up. And others look for the most valuable to the team, the one that does the dirty work that others may not appreciate.

So, today is the day to step out from the shadows and begin the debate. Who is the best American soccer player that’s playing right now? Don’t dip into the past for this one. The legends will have their day. Focus on the players who are doing it on the field right now, both for the USMNT and the USWNT. Hit the comments and let’s hear your pick!
