The U.S. men’s national team will play Wales in Wales Nov. 12 before meeting Panama in Austria Nov. 16.
Here are some USMNT roster notes, as provided by U.S. Soccer.
As of the start of camp on Nov. 8, the roster will have an average age of 21 years, 300 days.
The average number of caps won is nine.
The 24 players hail from clubs in nine countries: England (6), Germany (5), Netherlands and Spain (3 each), Belgium and France (2 each), Brazil, Italy and Portugal (1 each).
Only six players have more than 17 caps. Tim Ream is the senior-most player with 40 appearances, followed by John Brooks (38), Christian Pulisic (34), Weston McKennie (19), Matt Miazga (18) and Zack Steffen (17).
Ten players are uncapped: Johnny Cardoso, Konrad de la Fuente, Nicholas Gioacchini, Richie Ledezma, Yunus Musah, Chituru Odunze, Owen Otasowie, Gio Reyna, Chris Richards, Sebastian Soto.
Nineteen players are age-eligible for participation in the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo and 14 players are 20 or younger.
Of the 24 players, only Reggie Cannon and Uly Llanez have earned caps in 2020. Llanez scored in his international debut and played 73 minutes, while Cannon went the full 90 in the 1-0 win against Costa Rica on Feb. 1 in Carson, Calif.
Forward Josh Sargent recorded his first goal of the new Bundesliga season in Werder Bremen’s 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.
McKennie registered his first assist for Juventus in the club’s 4-1 win against Spezia Sunday.
Miazga has played each of the last three games since joining Anderlecht on loan, and most recently helped the club to a 1-0 shutout victory against Royal Antwerp on Sunday.
Likewise, Cannon has played every minute of Boavista’s six league matches since joining the Portuguese side in September. On Monday, Cannon went the full 90 minutes and helped keep the clean sheet as Boavista upset second-place Benfica 3-0.
In the midst of his first full Bundesliga season, Reyna has continued to impress for Borussia Dortmund, collecting two goals and four assists in nine matches across all competitions. Reyna memorably provided three assists in Dortmund’s 4-0 win against Freiburg on Oct. 3 and another in the club’s 3-1 Champions League defeat to Lazio on Oct. 20.
The youngest player on the roster, Musah scored his first professional goal over the weekend, going on a 70-yard run before tallying the opener in Valencia’s 2-2 draw with Getae on Sunday. Musah has previously represented England at the U-15, U-16, U-17 and U-18 levels.
Ledezma, 20, earned his first call-up after providing an assist in his first-team debut for PSV Eindhoven in Sunday’s 4-0 win against ADO Den Haag.
Richards has seen action in two matches for Bayern Munich this season, including his first Bundesliga start where he provided his first assist in the club’s 4-3 win against Hertha Berlin on Oct. 4.
Currently with Internacional (Brazil), Cardoso is the first player in 24 years to earn a USMNT call-up while playing for a club outside of Concacaf or UEFA. Cobi Jones last did it, earning a call-up to the 1996 Concacaf Gold Cup while playing for Vasco da Gama.
Having featured as a striker and right winger, forward 20-year-old Gioacchini has two goals in seven matches this season for French Ligue 2 side Caen.
Soto enters his first USMNT camp on the back of five goals in six matches for Dutch Erstedivisie side Telstar. The San Diego native scored four goals at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, tying him for second overall.
A teammate of Sergiño Dest’s at Barcelona, Konrad de la Fuente has inched closer to his first-team debut, making the substitutes bench in three matches so far for the La Liga side this season.
A product of the Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy, 19-year-old Otasowie is also knocking on the door of a Premier League debut after being a substitute in each of Wolves’ last two matches.
The goalkeeper for two of the USA’s three matches at the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil, 18-year-old Odunze is in the midst of his second season in the player development setup with English Premier League side Leicester City.
RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams will make his first USMNT camp appearance since playing in the 1-0 win against Ecuador on March 22, 2019.
Tim Weah returns to USMNT camp for the first time in two years. Currently with Lille of French Ligue 1, Weah last appeared against England on Nov. 15, 2018 at Wembley Stadium in London.
