If Bill Hamid’s Performance Against Toronto Doesn’t Earn Him USMNT Minutes, Nothing Will

For more almost a decade now, Bill Hamid has been a stalwart goalkeeper in Major League Soccer. At 19, he became the youngest goalkeeper to win a regular-season MLS match, beating Tim Howard’s record by four days. 

Hamid has now made 200 appearances for D.C. United — and Wednesday night’s was arguably his best performance yet. 

The question is: Will it get him some playing time with the USMNT?

Weston McKennie On Relegation Anxiety, Life In Germany And The USMNT’s Next Cycle

It’s raining sideways in Herzogenaurach on Monday evening with the temperature hovering in the low 40s. With a colossal match against Augsburg — one place above Schalke in the desperate battle to avoid the Bundesliga relegation playoff — looming the following Sunday, you could forgive Weston McKennie for being in a foul mood after traveling over 400 kilometers from Gelsenkirchen to arrive at adidas headquarters in Herzo for an evening of interviews.
