Adams looked out of his element playing in an attacking midfield role tonight with the USA. I still think his best role is as a box to box mid behind a true #10.
Box-to-box is his best role, but if he played in an attacking role here, he would be better. Here his role would better defined by the Red Bull coaching staff than Arena's leftovers have prepared this squad. And, he'd rely a lot more on the press than creativity to generate offense. Sacha didn't look great his last game or so with the Nets either.
That said, I am hoping Adams plays next to Felipe.
