USMNT duo Sergio Dest and Weston McKennie delivered an amusing press conference on Saturday that offered a glimpse into the chemistry between these two players ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Dest, 22, and McKennie, 24, both declared themselves fit for the , but it was their friendship that made headlines.
When asked about how the team will approach Wales, tactically speaking, Dest had to consult with McKennie before answering.
The pair of young stars, who will be making their FIFA World Cup debut, are likely the two most important players on the USMNT squad.
Dest, currently on loan at AC Milan from FC Barcelona, is a defender whose task on the field will be to feed Juventus midfielder McKennie so he can start the attack.
Dest-McKennie duo for the USMNT win
Their off-the-field friendship is a great sign of what to expect and the fact that both of them play in Serie A will only improve chemistry.
While Dest and McKennie are the duo that will ensure the USMNT don’t concede goals by maintaining possession, their job will stop near the opponent’s box.
USMNT striker Christian Pulisic is the chosen one when it comes to scoring the goals, but he’ll only be able to shine once Dest and McKennie handle their business.
“I’m feeling good. Of course, after the last game [for AC Milan], I had a little bit of fatigue. Right now, it’s going well. I’m ready to play,” Dest said.
