Crafty, clever, and fleet of foot, Mix Diskerud brings a different element to the U.S. midfield. After three consecutive years of appearing in only one match per U.S. MNT campaign, Diskerud’s playmaking and attacking abilities in the midfield came to the forefront in 2013 as he appeared in 13 of the USA’s final 14 matches. The Norwegian-born Diskerud kick-started his career year with a CONCACAF Gold Cup title and played regularly during the final stretch of FIFA World Cup Qualifying as the U.S. secured a berth to the 2014 event in Brazil where he earned a spot on the 23-man roster. A regular starter for Rosenborg BK in the Norwegian Tippeligaen that won the championship in 2013, Diskerud moved to MLS after signing with expansion club New York City FC.
