McKennie and Altidore headline USMNT roster for Jamaica friendly

By

Weston McKennie, Zack Steffen and Jozy Altidore headline the U.S. Men’s National Team’s 28-man roster for Wednesday’s friendly against Jamaica.

USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter will make the final cuts to his squad before finalizing his Gold Cup roster after the Jamaica friendly, with star midfielders Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams expected to join the team for the Gold Cup after the upcoming friendly.

“After a great week of training, we now enter the phase of playing competitive matches,” Berhalter said. “The game against Jamaica will represent an opportunity for us to evaluate new prospects as well continue to develop the group for the Gold Cup. We are excited about the group coming in and the opportunity ahead of us this summer.”

Goalkeeper Ethan Horvath wasn’t available for selection due to a finger injury he recently suffered, which looks like it will rule him out of the Gold Cup.

The USMNT begins its Gold Cup on June 18th in Minneapolis against Guyana before group stage matches against Trinidad & Tobago and Panama.
