Pomykal leaves USMNT January camp, returns to FC Dallas

Paxton Pomykal has left the U.S. Men’s National Team camp.

U.S. Soccer announced the news on Thursday, which sees Pomykal return to FC Dallas to continue rehabilitation from offseason groin surgery. Pomykal’s departure will not see Gregg Berhalter add a player in the midfielder’s place.

Pomykal made his senior debut back in Sept. 2019, appearing against Uruguay in a 1-1 draw in St. Louis. The 20-year-old scored two goals in 20 league appearances in 2019, helping FC Dallas to a berth in the 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs.

The current roster stands at 25 players as the team continues its camp in Bradenton, Fla. Berhalter’s side kicks off its 2020 schedule against Concacaf rivals Costa Rica in Carson, Cali. on Feb. 1st.

Here is the updated USMNT roster:

GOALKEEPERS: Sean Johnson, Bill Hamid, JT Marcinkowski, Matt Turner.

DEFENDERS: Julian Araujo, Reggie Cannon, Chase Gasper, Justen Glad, Aaron Long, Mark McKenzie, Sam Vines, Walker Zimmerman.

MIDFIELDERS: Brenden Aaronson, Christian Cappis, Bryang Kayo,  Sebastian Lletget, Cristian Roldan, Brandon Servania, Jackson Yueill.

FORWARDS: Paul Arriola,Jesus Ferreira, Jonathan Lewis, Ulysses Llanez,  Jordan Morris, Gyasi Zardes.


  1. American Outlaws St. Pete reporting Llanez was heading back to Germany today. Kind of what everyone expected. Cam Harper and Dante Seally trained with the NT today after good showings for the U20s against Mexico Thursday.

  2. It is not surprising, He had surgery at the end of the season, thinking he would recover from that and be match fit was always pretty wishful.

  3. We better not see Morris injured from all this extra training ( or Roldan, but he is usually ok ). Too much.

    • I was actually surprised that Paxton got a call up to begin with because of his surgery, so not shocked to see him leave camp!

      • I was a little surprised when he was brought as well, but hoped that meant he was ahead of schedule. I wonder if he was invited for Qatar so that those Euro teams could see him up close, but with that gone there was no reason to keep pushing his recovery.
