USA midfielder DaMarcus Beasley admits to being frustrated at not knowing whether he will be in coach Bruce Arena’s starting eleven for the World Cup.
The 24-year-old starting in 13 out of the 18 qualifiers and scored four goals.
But coach Bruce Arena has decided to delay naming his first XI until just before kick-off.
“It’s irritating not to know,” Beasley revealed. “Of course it’s better to know. It helps you get your mind set. It wouldn’t matter to me if I’m on the right, the left or the middle.
“But I don’t even know if I’ll even be playing the first game. He hasn’t made up his line-up.
“That’s the way he works. He knows a player wants to know a week or two before. Every coach is different. He does it his way. He’s not going to change his position for the World Cup,” Beasley continued.
“He hasn’t told us yet. You get used to it. But I think it would be better if we trained with our first XI for a week or five days.”
USA open their campaign with a difficult fixture against Czech Republic on June 12.
