USMNT right-back Reggie Cannon says there are great things for his side in the future and they can win a lot of trophies.

The USMNT failed to qualify for the previous tournament in Russia but now they are set to turn things around and make their way to Qatar. 

The 22-year-old defender believes the US men national team have a lot to say in the upcoming World Cup tournament in Qatar.

Cannon

said

: “I think this team can win a lot of trophies. The World Cup is the end goal but first we are focused on the Nations League and friendlies coming up.

"I think with the talent this group has and the depth we are getting in each position, I think this team can make a deep, deep run in the next World Cup.

“I see a lot of people say 2026 is going to be the big chance for USA considering where it is and everyone having the chance to develop at the biggest clubs, I do believe that but our focus is on the next World Cup, making sure we qualify and get those experiences under the belt.

"I think it’s going to be huge. This squad has so much quality, playing at some of the world’s biggest clubs, making huge impacts. It just gives motivation to a lot of the young guys to keep going.”
