With less than two months remaining until the World Cup in Qatar, the U.S. men’s national team will play its final preparation match against World Cup finalist Saudi Arabia in Murcia, Spain on Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET.

The game can be seen on FS1, UniMAS and TUDN.

One of six Asian Football Confederation teams to reach Qatar, the Green Falcons posted impressive numbers during its qualifying run, finishing first in their second and third round groups with a combined 13-1-4 record. They edged Japan in the third round, Group B standings.

All their players compete in the domestic league, with Saleh Al-Shehri and Salem Al-Dawsari each recording seven goals in qualifying. The USA fell to Japan 2-0 on Friday in the team’s penultimate tune-up while Saudi Arabia opened the window with a 0-0 draw against Ecuador on the same day.

The USA opened its September window in Düsseldorf, Germany in an abysmal performance against Japan on Friday, falling to the Samurai Blue, 2-0.

Goalkeeper Matt Turner made six saves.

USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter had the opportunity to observe 17 players, with a few making their first national team appearances in months.

Midfielder Gio Reyna and defender Sam Vines made their first starts in more than a year, and second half substitutes Josh Sargent, Jonny Cardoso and Mark McKenzie made their first appearances of 2022.

Following the match, defender Reggie Cannon was diagnosed with a left groin strain, which is expected to sideline him for a few weeks.
