CCV will be up for player of the year in just a few months’ time after starring all season for Celtic. After arriving in Glasgow on a permanent basis in the summer, he’s been a rock at the back for the Hoops, demonstrating why he’s nicknamed ‘The Fridge’.

He was at the Qatar World Cup with America, making one start in the tournament. He was impressive throughout his country’s 1-0 win against Iran, and looked to be on the cusp of breaking into the national side.

Since arriving at Celtic, he’s been a regular in the American squads after a spell out of favour, and he was expected to play a role in the Concacaf Nations League against Grenada and El Salvador.

It’s certainly surprising not to see Cameron Carter-Vickers included in the squad, but it allows him to get some rest and avoid a long-haul flight.
