At the 2014 World Cup, the U.S. Men's National Team was anchored by its veteran core: Michael Bradley, Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey.

However, due to age and the natural progression of each player's career, the 2018 USMNT will look much different than it did in Brazil.

Some of the core will remain, young players will continue to develop, and new talent will be added into the fold.

B/R world football analyst Michael Cummings explains how the team could be constructed by 2018 and shares the names you need to know now as well as those you should be excited to see in four years' time.
