This morning, United States Men’s National Team Gregg Berhalter released his 23-man roster for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which begins on June 15th. The 23 players who comprise the roster come from the 40-man provisional roster which was announced on May 20th.

In a change to the rules this year, the 23-man roster will be the final roster for the USMNT for the Gold Cup. Previously, teams named 30-man rosters and brought 23 to the group stage. After the group stage concluded, teams were allowed to bring up 6 roster replacements from the 30-man roster. Starting with this month’s tournament, however, only the 23-man roster will be eligible to play throughout the Gold Cup.

The 23-man USMNT roster for the 2019 Gold Cup (with roster numbers):

GOALKEEPERS (3): 12 - Sean Johnson (New York City FC), 22 - Tyler Miller (Los Angeles Football Club), 1 - Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew SC)

DEFENDERS (8): 14 - Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), 3 - Omar Gonzalez (Toronto FC), 2 - Nick Lima (San Jose Earthquakes), 23 - Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), 16 - Daniel Lovitz (Montreal Impact), 19 - Matt Miazga (Chelsea), 13 - Tim Ream (Fulham), 5 - Walker Zimmerman (Los Angeles Football Club)
