With 13 players returning for the first time since the 2022 World Cup, the U.S. men’s national team summoned 24 players for its next Concacaf Nations League matches.

They have been called in for the Orlando, Fla. training camp.

That included forward Gio Reyna, who has been the center of a major and embarrassing controversy between his parents, Claudio and Danielle, and former USA head coach Gregg Berhalter, due to his playing time in the Qatar in the world championship.

There is one glaring absence – captain and midfielder Tyler Adams, who had to be pulled from the squad due to a hamstring strain.

As defending champions, the USMNT has two matches remaining to close out Group D. Currently in second place with four points and one behind El Salvador, the USA opens the window away to Grenada on March 24 at Kirani James Athletic Stadium in Saint George’s (8 p.m. ET; TNT, Universo, Peacock).

Three days later, the USA faces El Salvador at Exploria Stadium. That match will be broadcast live on TNT and Universo and streamed on Peacock. Coverage begins at 7 p.m., with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Fans can follow the USMNT on Twitter (@USMNT), Instagram (@USMNT), Facebook and the official U.S. Soccer App.

“First and foremost, our objective is to win both matches. We want to defend our Nations League title and also qualify for this summer’s Gold Cup, and to do that we need to get results,” USMNT head coach Anthony Hudson said in a statement. “From there, we want to maintain the standards that we’ve set and continue to build on the accomplishments of the last four years. We walked away from the World Cup knowing that we are capable of more, and we’re excited to continue to move this group forward.”
