The United States Men’s National Team has its first roster of the year. Today, USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter announced the 25-man roster that will travel to San Antonio to take on Slovenia on January 20th.

The announcement was done at an unveiling at the Frost Bank Center, home of the San Antonio Spurs. It’s the first time in over 20 years that U.S. Soccer has announced the roster for a game in the city that is hosting the match.

With the match occurring outside of a FIFA internationl window, USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter, as is usual for January Camp, selected a roster that consists entirely of players from Major League Soccer.

17 players are uncapped on this roster, including 15 receiving their first call-up to the USMNT. 13 players are age-eligible for inclusion on the Olympic roster, and Berhalter said it was a great opportunity to get them experience with the senior team ahead of an important summer.

“This is an opportunity to identify and work with the next generation of players who have the potential to make an impact on our program,” Berhalter said in a statement. “We appreciate the support from MLS and all their clubs so that we can utilize this platform. Our priority is on getting as many players as possible experience in important competitions, and this camp and the match against Slovenia will be extremely valuable in the evaluation process.”

The team will convene in Orlando from January 8-16 to begin the 2 week training camp. They will then travel to San Antonio to finish preparations for the match. The match against Slovenia will take place on January 20th at Toyota Field, the home of San Antonio FC.

The 25-man roster:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Drake Callender (Inter Miami), Roman Celentano (FC Cincinnati), Patrick Schulte (Columbus Crew)

DEFENDERS (10): Nathan Harriel (Philadelphia Union), DeJuan Jones (New England Revolution), Shaq Moore (Nashville SC), Ian Murphy (FC Cincinnati), Jackson Ragen (Seattle Sounders), Miles Robinson (FC Cincinnati), James Sands (New York City FC), Nkosi Tafari (FC Dallas), John Tolkin (New York Red Bulls), Caleb Wiley (Atlanta United)
