Jackson Yueill has been added to the United States Men’s National Team roster ahead of next week’s friendly against El Salvador. USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter decided to add the 23-year-old midfielder from the San Jose Earthquakes to boost the midfielder core, bringing the number of players in camp to 23.
His arrival was delayed as he underwent the normal COVID-19 testing procedures put forth by U.S. Soccer. He will be available for the USMNT when they take on El Salvador on December 9th (7:30pm ET, ESPN Network, UniMás, TUDN). Yueill has 7 caps for the USMNT, last appearing back on February 1st during the annual January Camp match, a 1-0 victory over Costa Rica. He was slated to be on the U-23 team that was set in March to head to Olympic qualifying before the pandemic postponed the qualifying tournament.
It seems like more additions to the roster are forthcoming as the MLS Cup Playoffs continue tonight, but as it stands right now, the current 23-man roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): CJ Dos Santos (Benfica), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), David Ochoa (Real Salt Lake)
DEFENDERS (8): Julian Araujo (LA Galaxy), Kyle Duncan (New York Red Bulls), Marco Farfan (Portland Timbers), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Mark McKenzie (Philadelphia Union), Mauricio Pineda (Chicago Fire), Sam Vines (Colorado Rapids), Walker Zimmerman (Nashville SC)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Brenden Aaronson (Philadelphia Union), Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), Cole Bassett (Colorado Rapids), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Andrés Perea (Orlando City), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes)
FORWARDS (6): Ayo Akinola (Toronto FC), Efrain Alvarez (LA Galaxy), Paul Arriola (D.C. United), Daryl Dike (Orlando City SC), Djordje Mihailovic (Chicago Fire), Chris Mueller (Orlando City)
