The United States Men’s National Team roster is going to be a little tricky for the month of March. Ahead of friendlies this month against Jamaica and Northern Ireland, Gregg Berhalter has named a 26-man roster to begin camp this weekend.

Because several players will have a quarantine when heading to different places, expect this USMNT roster to change during the window. Seven players will depart camp after the Jamaica match because of local restrictions not allowing them to travel to the United Kingdom. Those players would be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon their return, and several teams have already blocked the release of their players for matches in the United Kingdom or South America.

“This is another step forward in strengthening our group in preparation for Nations League, Gold Cup, and World Cup Qualifying,” Gregg Berhalter said in a statement released by U.S. Soccer. “It’s great to get the group together to continue to build relationships on and off the field. We look forward to the games and the different challenges they will pose.”

The 26-man roster for the USMNT:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge), Chituru Odunze (Leicester City), Zack Steffen (Manchester City)

DEFENDERS (10): John Brooks* (Wolfsburg), Reggie Cannon* (Boavista), Sergiño Dest (Barcelona), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Matt Miazga (Anderlecht), Erik Palmer-Brown (Austria Wien), Tim Ream (Fulham), Bryan Reynolds (AS Roma), Chris Richards* (Hoffenheim), Antonee Robinson (Fulham FC)

MIDFIELDERS (7): Brenden Aaronson (Red Bull Salzburg), Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids) Tyler Adams* (RB Leipzig), Luca de la Torre (Heracles), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Yunus Musah (Valencia), Owen Otasowie (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

FORWARDS: (6): Daryl Dike (Barnsley FC), Nicholas Gioacchini (Caen), Christian Pulisic (Chelsea), Gio Reyna* (Borussia Dortmund), Josh Sargent* (Werder Bremen), Tim Weah* (Lille)

* Indicates player will depart after March 25th match against Jamaica
