Tyler Adams' USMNT World Cup captaincy a long time coming
AL-RAYYAN, Qatar – Mike Grella will admit that his first impression of Tyler Adams wasn’t all that great.
Transferred to RB Leipzig on Dec. 1, 2018.
A bright part of the future of the club, Adams made 22 starts in a breakout 2017 campaign. Has a great eye for incisive passes and can play as a holding midfielder or fullback. He gained notoriety for his late run and headed goal in a 2015 International Champions Cup win over Chelsea at the age of 16.
OUTSIDE MLS: First signing in New York Red Bulls II history at the age of 16 in March 2015. Played 11 games and made 9 starts for Red Bulls II in 2015 USL season before joining the US squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.
INTERNATIONAL: US U-17 international, played in 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile, and broke in with the U-20 squad at the 2017 CONCACAF Championships, which act as U-20 World Cup qualifiers.
