This list is based on ranking American soccer players based on skill-level based on their performances at the club level, international level, or both.

In many cases, some of the less-experienced players at the international level have demonstrated a noticeable increase in skill-level and athleticism compared to players that are more experienced members of the United States Men’s National Team under Jürgen Klinsmann.

Ranking players is subjective especially given the difficulty of comparing and contrasting players who play different positions.
