American interim manager Dave Sarachan today announced the 24-man roster for the United States Men’s National Team. The announcement came a week earlier than expected, but the 24 men will report to camp next Monday in advance of friendlies on October 11th against Colombia and October 16th against Peru.
There weren’t many changes from the roster that the USMNT had for friendlies last month against Brazil and Mexico. Sarachan continues to use these camps to evaluate young talent to see who will be a part of the core group of players for the team as we move forward in this World Cup cycle.
DEFENDERS (8): John Brooks (Wolfsburg), Reggie Cannon (FC Dallas), Cameron Carter-Vickers (Swansea City), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Matt Miazga (Nantes), Antonee Robinson (Wigan Athletic), Ben Sweat (New York City FC), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle)
MIDFIELDERS (10): Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls), Jonathan Amon (Nordsjælland), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Julian Green (Greuther Fürth), Weston McKennie (Schalke 04), Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund), Kenny Saief (Anderlecht), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew SC), Tim Weah (Paris Saint-Germain)
Christian Pulisic returns to the roster for the first time since a friendly against Bolivia back on Memorial Day. He’s had an incredible run of form lately, and that star power will be needed against Colombia and Peru. Also making his return is Michael Bradley, who hasn’t appeared for the national team since the loss to Trinidad and Tobago a year ago. Making their debuts on the national team are Jonathan Amon, Ben Sweat, and Reggie Cannon, who have been on the radar for quite some time. We will finally see what they can do.
