The United States Men’s National Team is back for two more international matches in November, as they take on Trinidad and Tobago twice in the quarterfinals of the Concacaf Nations League.
These two matches are crucial for the USMNT, as they are looking to claim their third consecutive Concacaf Nations League, and also qualify for the 2024 Copa America.
The two matches will be taking place on November 16th in Austin, Texas, and then on November 20th in Port of Spain in Trinidad. For these two matches, USMNT manager Gregg Berhalter selected his 24-man roster, with a lot of familiar names being called in.
The 24-Man Roster
The 24-man roster that Gregg Berhalter selected for the matches against Trinidad and Tobago goes as follows:
Goalkeepers (3): Ethan Horvath (Nottingham Forest), Gabriel Slonina (KAS Eupen), Matt Turner (Nottingham Forest)
Defenders (8): Cameron Carter-Vickers (Celtic FC), Sergiño Dest (PSV Eindhoven), Kristoffer Lund (Palermo), Tim Ream (Fulham), Chris Richards (Crystal Palace), Antonee Robinson (Fulham), Miles Robinson (Atlanta United), Joe Scally (Borussia Mönchengladbach
Midfielders (8): Paxten Aaronson (Eintracht Frankfurt), Johnny Cardoso (Internacional), Luca de la Torre (Celta Vigo), Lennard Maloney (Heidenheim), Weston McKennie (Juventus), Yunus Musah (AC Milan), Gio Reyna (Borussia Dortmund), Malik Tillman (PSV Eindhoven)
Forwards (5): Brendan Aaronson (Union Berlin), Folarin Balogun (AS Monaco), Kevin Paredes (Wolfsburg), Ricardo Pepi (PSV Eindhoven), Alex Zendejas (Club América)
Big Names Injured
A big trio of names are missing from the USMNT roster, as they have all suffered injuries with their club teams. Tyler Adams, Tim Weah, and Christian Pulisic are the names of individuals who are hurt, with all three suffering a hamstring injury.
Tyler Adams received a second surgery on his hamstring about a month ago, and he will be out of action until February. Both Tim Weah and Christian Pulisic got their injuries while playing for Juventus and AC Milan.
Aaronson Brothers Both on the Squad
For the first time in their USMNT careers, both Brenden and Paxten Aaronson will be participating in the same USMNT camp. Brenden has been a consistent call-up for the United States throughout the last couple of camps, while Paxten only has one appearance with the main USMNT squad in his whole career.
This will be a cool moment for the two brothers, as both started their careers with the hometown Union and are now both playing in Europe in the Bundesliga.
