The U.S. Men’s National Team’s road to the Copa America begins in Puerto Rico on Sunday afternoon.
Featuring a squad comprised solely of European and Mexican-based players, the U.S. travels to Baymon to take on Puerto Rico in the first of three pre-Copa America friendlies (12 p.m., Fox Sports 1). With several regulars still with their club teams, the friendly presents Jurgen Klinsmann with a unique opportunity to get several new faces into the lineup.
One player set to make his USMNT debut is Paul Arriola, who has been named to Klinsmann’s starting XI alongside several USMNT regulars. Bobby Wood, John Brooks, Brad Guzan, Alejandro Bedoya, Perry Kitchen, Michael Orozco and DeAndre Yedlin also join the lineup after being named to Klinsmann’s Copa America squad on Saturday afternoon.
The day could also see debuts for Amando Moreno, Fabrice Picault, Caleb Stanko, and Zach Steffen, each of whom is joining the U.S. for their first senior team camp.
