Every year, the United States men's national team sees a new player step up to the plate and make an instant impact on the team.
In the build-up to the 2010 World Cup, Charlie Davies came out of nowhere and impressed American fans with his skills up front.

In the next year, the United States will enter the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.
In the final qualifying process for Brazil, Klinsmann will once again look for unsung heroes to step up for the United States.
Here are five players that can fill that role that Davies, Zusi and Johnson have filled over the past few years.
