Corey Baird named to USMNT roster

Baird returns to the national team picture.

Lucas Muller | RSL Soapbox

After being left off the Gold Cup roster, we were all left with questions about Corey Baird’s standing with the U.S. Men’s National Team.

And while there are still questions to be had, we have a bit of clarity now, with Baird being named to USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter’s latest roster.

It’s difficult to foresee if Baird will play in either of the exhibitions the U.S. is undertaking; it’s further difficult to anticipate whether he’d play on the wing or up top; Whatever the case, with an improvement in form for Baird since the appointment of RSL interim coach Freddy Juarez, he may have simply worked his way back into consideration.
