Future Watch: Tyler Adams Rookie Soccer Cards – RB Leipzig

Future Watch: Tyler Adams Rookie Soccer Cards – RB Leipzig – There are so many interesting facets to Tyler Adams’ game. He is a defensive midfielder who never shies away from doing the dirty work of digging in defensively. But, he is also very smooth on the football and has excellent positional awareness going forward as well.

The 21-year-old is in his second season with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig. He transferred from MLS club New York Red Bulls, where he came through their Red Bulls II side. Adams had two goals and 11 assists in 52 MLS appearances.

So far for Leipzig, Adams has made eight appearances for Die Roten Bullen this season. He is one of the team’s best ball winners and tackles very well. He is also fluid with the ball at his feet. Adams can play both ways. He can run and is quick in tight spaces with the football and I like some of the flair that is displayed at times in his game as well. He is already an accomplished talent and can still get even better.

For the U.S. Men’s National team, Adams has earned 10 caps and scored one goal. That goal came against The U.S.’s fiercest rivals, Mexico, back in September in a 1-0 win.

Adams must continue to develop and improve his already impressive talents and he will become a mainstay for the Red, White and Blue in international play. Look for him to be a key piece of Gregg Berhalter’s side for the World Cup in 2022.

Collectors can find cards of Tyler Adams in 2018 Topps MLS Soccer, 2018 Topps Stadium Club MLS and 2018-19 Panini Immaculate Collection.
