I see he missed out on selection for these final 2 warm up games v Japan and Saudi Arabia and given the WC starts in 56 days you’d think barring injuries that’s his chance gone.

He hadn't made one of their squads since last October, I'm not surprised that he's still not making them when he's not playing.

Ah right I want sure when his last cap was

I think steffen could still be in as he’s a fitness issue

It sounded like Steffen has still got a good chance if he's playing well for us, from what I read from the USA coach a week or so ago.

11 games before the league stops for the World Cup, plenty of time for him to prove himself, especially as he was first choice for them before.

World Cups squads now rarely have a Boro player in them. McGree looks like he could be the only one this time and the most we have had is 3 in 2006.

2022 - 1 or possible 2 McGree (Steffen)
2018 - 0
2014 - 2 Adomah and Omerou
2010 - 1 Killen
2006 - 3 Downing, Schwarzer, Viduka
2002 - 2 Southgate and Boksic
1998 - 2 Ricard and Merson
1994 - 0
1990 - 1 Slaven
1986 - 0
1982 - 1 Platt

You then have to go back to 1950 and Wilf for the only other one.

Before we signed him (or just after.....🤔) I watched a USA "soccer pundit" commenting on his signing, and he said way back in August it was highly unlikely he would make the WC squad as there were a number of players ahead of him. So no surprise for our big development not to make it. Needs to continue his development at Rockcliffe.......🙄
