The second Bruce Arena era truly begins on Sunday afternoon with the first U.S. Men’s National Team match of the new year.
Following several weeks of January cap, the U.S. takes the field on Sunday in San Diego to face Serbia in the team’s first friendly since the firing of Jurgen Klinsmann. In the build-up to Sunday’s match, Arena trimmed the USMNT squad to 23 to complete a roster with a mix of new faces and experienced regulars.
The USMNT lineup features several regulars, including Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones and Alejandro Bedoya. Darlington Nagbe and Sacha Kljestan also return to the lineup, while a returning Greg Garza holds down the left back position with Graham Zusi on the other side of the defense.
