CHICAGO – San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski has been added to the U.S. men’s national team training camp roster, it was announced Thursday.
He replaces David Ochoa, who has been diagnosed with a right quadriceps strain.
The USMNT will host El Salvador on Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Inter Miami CF Stadium in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
Marcinkowski, 23, has yet to make an appearance for the senior national team but has participated in two prior camps in May 2019 and January 2020. He has competed extensively at the youth national team level and was part of the U-23 team that traveled to Mexico for the Concacaf Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship in March before the tournament was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. He also competed at the 2017 Concacaf U-20 Championship and the 2017 U-20 World Cup.
The former Georgetown University goalkeeper recently finished his third season with the San Jose Earthquakes, in which he ranked fifth in winning percentage (.545) among the league’s 27 goalkeepers with at least 10 starts.
