The United States Men’s National Team begin their 2021 campaign when they take the field tonight against Trinidad and Tobago. For the USMNT, it’s a chance for guys on the roster to show that they are capable of being one of the main guys that head coach Gregg Berhalter can rely on for the variety of competitions that are taking place this summer. For many on the roster, there’s also the added option of showing U-23 head coach Jason Kreis that when he fills out his roster for the Olympic qualifying tournament in March, their name should be on that list.
The Soca Warriors have an inexperienced group, with just one main veteran on their roster. Over half of their roster has yet to debut for the national team, and they haven’t had much time to prepare due to COVID restrictions. Still, they pose some guys that are fast and can cause the USMNT fits. Will the USMNT be able to assert its dominance from the start? Will Trinidad keep themselves in it to steal the win? We’ll find out tonight.
