Leeds United star Tyler Adams has no ceiling as crazy view dropped at World Cup in Qatar
Leeds United star Tyler Adams has “no ceiling” after captaining his country to a solid start at the Qatar World Cup, according to former USA star DaMarcus Beasley.
The 23-year-old played an instrumental part in the US’ impressive draw against England on Friday (25 November), dominating the midfield battle against Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice throughout the night.
Gregg Berhalter’s side faces Iran in a winner takes all encounter in Group B on Tuesday (29 November), with Adams hopeful his side can use their display against England as momentum as the tournament progresses.
Beasley said: “His ability to be able to know when to play simple, play long balls. I think he has a very high ceiling and I think he is one of the best midfielders in this tournament. Not just with the national team, but in this tournament.
“I did say high ceiling but he doesn’t have one, you know. I think he’s that good and I think he’s showing… and he’s even said it – this is the best he’s felt, the best he’s played in a long time in his career so far. And he’s only 23, and that’s crazy to say.”
Adams is carrying a heavy burden on his young shoulders but seems to be showing no signs of it on the pitch, with his performances going from strength to strength so far in Qatar.
Starting at the base of the U.S. midfield, the former RB Leipzig man has been the pivot for the majority of his side’s counter-attacks and is used as a lynch-pin in defence if they lose the ball whilst throwing bodies forward.
The most impressive part of his game is his endless pressing and energy off the ball, which saw him harry and harass England star Mason Mount and ultimately keep him very quiet all night long.
Adams is the type of player who leads by his performances on the pitch, and he seems to have inspired his teammates this World Cup – all be it without being able to find the back of the net on a regular basis.
