As of the opening World Cup  match against Wales on Nov. 21, the USA’s 26-player roster will hold an average age of 25 years, 175 days, making it the second-youngest USMNT roster at a World Cup after the 1990 squad (24 years, 24 days).

The 2022 team also ties the 1990 side for most U-23 players on a USMNT World Cup roster with nine: Tyler Adams (23); Brenden Aaronson, Sergiño Dest, Josh Sargent and Tim Weah (22); Jesús Ferreira (21); Yunus Musah, Gio Reyna and Joe Scally (19).

With the inclusion of Musah, Reyna and Scally, this is the first USMNT World Cup squad with more than one teenager on the roster, though Gio Reyna will turn 20 on Nov. 12 and Yunus Musah will do so on Nov. 29, the day of the USA’s final group stage match against Iran.

Only three USMNT World Cup players have been younger than the teenage trio for the first game of their respective tournament: Joe Martinelli (17.76; 1934), Julian Green (19.03; 2014), Chris Henderson (19.5; 1990), Joe Scally (19.89; 2022), Yunus Musah (19.98; 2022), Gio Reyna (20.02; 2022).

With 75 caps, DeAndre Yedlin is the senior-most player and the only one with previous World Cup experience after featuring in three matches during the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

Following Yedlin in terms of seniority are Kellyn Acosta (53 caps), Christian Pulisic (52), Jordan Morris (49), Tim Ream (46), Weston McKennie (37), Walker Zimmerman (33), Tyler Adams (32) and Cristian Roldan (32).

At 35 years old, Tim Ream is the eighth oldest player named to a USMNT World Cup roster, and fifth oldest field player. The current captain of English Premier League side Fulham FC ranks behind Frank Moniz (38.75; 1950), Marcus Hahnemann (37.99; 2010), Fernando Clavijo (37.4; 1994), Thomas Dooley (37.1; 1998), Tom Florie (36.72; 1934), Kasey Keller (36.54; 2006), Tim Howard (35.28; 2014), Tim Ream (35.13; 2022).

Players represent clubs in eight different countries: USA (9), England (8), Germany (2), Italy (2), Spain (2), France (1), Scotland (1), Turkey (1).

Players have hometowns in nine different states: California (4), New York (4), Georgia (3) Texas (3), Missouri (2), New Jersey (2), Washington (2), Colorado (1), Pennsylvania (1).

Four other players have hometowns in two foreign countries: England (3) and Netherlands (1).

Twenty-one players made at least one appearance for the USA during 2022 World Cup Qualifying. The group accounted for 9,683 minutes (70 percent of total minutes) and 16 of the 21 goals scored (76 percent).

The five who did not appear in qualifying are goalkeepers Ethan Horvath and Sean Johnson, defenders Cameron Carter-Vickers and Joe Scally, and forward Haji Wright.

Four clubs have two players on the USMNT World Cup roster: Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams (Leeds United); Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson (Fulham); Shaq Moore and Walker Zimmerman (Nashville SC); Jordan Morris and Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders)

Having made his international debut at the start of 2021, Matt Turner has 14 clean sheets through his first 20 caps, leading all USMNT goalkeepers in shutouts through their first 20 appearances.

Should Turner appear in a World Cup match, he would become the fourth goalkeeper from the state of New Jersey to play for the USMNT at the tournament, following Jimmy Douglas (East Newark; 1930), Tony Meola (Kearny; 1990 and 1994) and Tim Howard (North Brunswick; 2010, 2014).

Defender Sergiño Dest (AC Milan) and midfielder Weston McKennie (Juventus) are the second and third USMNT players from Serie A clubs to make a World Cup roster, following Oguchi Onyewu (AC Milan) in 2010.

Dest will be the second Dutch-American to represent the USMNT at a FIFA World Cup, following current U.S. Soccer Sporting Director Earnie Stewart who took part in the 1994, 1998 and 2002 World Cups.

Having recently captained Celtic in the UEFA Champions League, center back Cameron Carter-Vickers becomes the first player from a Scottish club named to a U.S. World Cup roster.

Center back Walker Zimmerman (Lawrenceville), goalkeeper Sean Johnson (Lilburn) and right back Shaq Moore (Powder Springs) all hail from the state of Georgia, with Zimmerman and Johnson both having attended Brookwood High School in the Atlanta suburb of Snellville.

Goalkeeper Ethan Horvath becomes the first player from the state of Colorado named to a USMNT World Cup roster.

Midfielders Luca de la Torre (Celta de Vigo) and Yunus Musah (Valencia) are the first players from the Spanish Primera to make a U.S. World Cup roster. Previously, Tab Ramos made the 1994 squad after playing for Real Betis in the Spanish Segunda.

Defender Joe Scally and Haji Wright both made their USMNT debuts earlier this year in the 3-0 friendly win against Morocco on June 1 in Cincinnati. Wright’s penalty kick in that match made him the 56th player to score in their USMNT debut.

Wright (Antalyaspor) also becomes just the second player from a Turkish club to make a USMNT World Cup roster after Jermaine Jones, who was on loan with Besiktas at the time of the 2014 tournament in Brazil.

Fourteen players represented the USA in at least one FIFA Youth World Cup: Kellyn Acosta (2011 U-17; 2013, 2015 U-20), Tyler Adams (2015 U-17, 2017 U-20), Cameron Carter-Vickers (2015, 2017 U-20), Luca de la Torre (2015 U-17, 2017 U-20), Sergiño Dest (2017 U-17, 2019 U-20), Sean Johnson (2009 U-20), Shaq Moore (2015 U-20), Christian Pulisic (2015 U-17), Gio Reyna (2019 U-17), Josh Sargent (2017 U-17, U-20), Joe Scally (2019 U-17) Tim Weah (2017 U-17, 2019 U-20), Haji Wright (2015 U-17), DeAndre Yedlin (2013 U-20).
