The 21-year-old Brek’s upside is still very clear and present.

His experience with the US national team in the past year has given him more purpose and discipline.

And the return of David Ferreira to the FCD lineup gives him a visionary teammate who can pick out his wide runs.

In short, Year 5 of the Brek Era promises to be the best yet. If the trajectory holds, could we see him score enough goals to match his jersey number: 20?
