A pair of MLS stars headline the list of initial changes ahead of the Gold Cup’s knockout round.
Cyle Larin is set to join up with Canada ahead of the quarterfinals as the Orlando City striker returns to the fold after being excluded from the group stage. His absence was caused by his recent DUI arrest, one which saw him serve a suspension in MLS before being omitted from Canada’s initial Gold Cup squad.
Costa Rican veteran Kendall Waston also joins the fray in the knockout stage as he joins a Ticos team that sees veterans Joel Campbell, Christian Gamboa, Bryan Oviedo and Johan Venegas return to their clubs.
El Salvador, Jamaica and Mexico, who wrapped up play on Sunday, are able to make changes up to 24 hours after the conclusion of their final group stage match.
On Sunday, U.S. Soccer announced a series of six changes as the U.S. Men’s National Team is the only team to utilize the maximum amount of swaps to date.
