Major League Soccer has become a landing-place for many of the top talents in the region. The Gold Cup shows evidence of that, as 51 MLSers are on rosters

The CONCACAF region has always been filled with hidden gems who have gone on to have great international careers. In recent years, many of those gems have made their way to MLS thanks to the league’s growth. That transition has led to a higher playing level in the league itself, along with several national teams filling their squads with MLS talent.

This year, 51 players made the final roster for their respective nations as the tournament is about to get underway. Eighteen MLS squads had players called in, meaning nearly every team will have an added incentive in following the tournament. Lets break it down by conference to see who will be playing where as each nation tries for regional glory.
