United States Men’s National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter has made a change to his upcoming World Cup qualifying roster. Nashville SC centerback Walker Zimmerman has been added to the roster ahead of the opening of camp next week. He replaces Fulham FC centerback Tim Ream, who has withdrawn from the team for family reasons.

Zimmerman was a part of the USMNT roster during the September World Cup qualifying window, however he did not make an appearance in qualifiers against El Salvador, Canada, or Honduras. He did feature for the USMNT during the group stage of the 2021 Gold Cup before he had to withdraw from the team due to injury.

The updated USMNT roster:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Sean Johnson (New York City FC), Zack Steffen (Manchester City), Matt Turner (New England Revolution)

DEFENDERS (10): George Bello (Atlanta United), John Brooks (Wolfsburg), Sergiño Dest (FC Barcelona), Mark McKenzie (Genk), Shaq Moore (Tenerife), Chris Richards (Hoffenheim), Antonee Robinson (Fulham FC), Miles Robinson (Atlanta United), DeAndre Yedlin (Galatasaray), Walker Zimmerman (Nashville SC)

MIDFIELDERS (8): Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), Gianluca Busio (Venezia), Luca de la Torre (Heracles), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Weston McKennie (Juventus/ITA), Yunus Musah (Valencia), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders)

FORWARDS (6): Brenden Aaronson (Red Bull Salzburg), Paul Arriola (D.C. United), Matthew Hoppe (Mallorca), Ricardo Pepi (FC Dallas), Tim Weah (Lille), Gyasi Zardes (Columbus Crew)

The team will gather in Austin after this weekend’s club matches to prepare for qualfiers against Jamaica in Austin, away to Panama, and versus Costa Rica in Columbus.

We certainly hope everything is okay with Tim Ream and his family. Hit the comments to discuss this change in the USMNT roster.
