Major League Soccer (MLS) will kick off its 2022 season this Saturday, February 26. The teams of the highest circuit of American soccer have been armed to the teeth to seek the league title in this new soccer cycle. The tournament is scheduled to end on November 5, two weeks before the start of the Qatar World Cup.
A new season is a new opportunity to see the progression of young players in the league. American soccer has made an effort to hire world soccer figures for this championship, but at the same time has worked hard to develop players. These are five young players who could explode in MLS in 2022:
At 17, Gabriel Slonina earned a spot with the Chicago Fire and has also been called up by the US senior team. The player from Illinois could consolidate and continue his upward path in the 2022 MLS season.
The 18-year-old Philadelphia Union footballer played 632 minutes, spread over 19 games, in the MLS last season. For 2022, the midfielder with American and Irish blood will be looking to grab a starting job and show all of his ability.
The speedy 19-year-old New York winger is aiming for a more prominent role with the MLS champion in the 2022 season. Gray responded when New York City FC needed him most and will surely continue to gain minutes on the pitch.
Without a doubt, Caden Clark is one of the most exciting prospects in American soccer. The 18-year-old attacking midfielder, owned by RB Leipzig, will play his final season in MLS, leaving for Europe at the end of 2022. In the previous cycle, he was an undisputed starter, making 31 appearances, scoring six goals and providing three assists.
Cade Cowell’s potential is very high. The San Jose Earthquakes winger has already shown what he can do on the pitch and has been considered for the US senior team. In 2022, the forward must take more prominence and show why he is one of the jewels of American soccer and show his highest level.
