CHICAGO – It looks like the strongest roster that U.S. men’s national team head coach Gregg Berhalter could have named for the Concacaf Nations League Final Four.
Berhalter announced his 23-man roster Monday, which includes goalkeeper Zack Steffen, defenders John Brooks and Sergiño Dest, midfielders Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie and forward Brenden Aaronson, Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Josh Sargent and Tim Weah, among others.
Along with Costa Rica, Honduras and Mexico, the USMNT is seeking to capture the inaugural tournament title. The roster, presented by Biosteel, will be officially submitted later today.
In preparation, the USMNT will take on No. 13-ranked Switzerland May 30 in St. Gallen as it prepares for its final match ahead of the Concacaf Nations League Final Four. ESPN, UniMás and TUDN will broadcast the match live from kybunpark at 2 p.m. ET.
Fans will also be able to follow the match via Facebook, Twitter @USMNT, Instagram @USMNT and the official U.S. Soccer App.
“We are excited to gather this group together as we compete to win the Nations League trophy,” Berhalter said in a statement. “It’s been a great year for our player pool and the unprecedented successes of winning multiple league and cup championships. Our focus now becomes continuing this success with the National Team.”
