The U.S. Men’s National Team takes the field in Europe for the final time before turning its attention to competitive action for the first time in 2021.

Gregg Berhalter’s side face Switzerland in St. Gallen this afternoon (2 p.m. ESPN) looking to continue a busy year with a victory over the 13th-ranked Swiss. Sunday’s friendly in Austria will be followed up by the resumption of the postponed Concacaf Nations League semifinals on Thursday in Colorado.

Berhalter will once again have plenty of lineup decisions to make with Weston McKennie, Tyler Adams, and Josh Sargent all being included for both upcoming matches. Julian Green, Matthew Hoppe, and Justin Che are all players hoping to get game time after strong club campaigns in Germany.

    • Screw ESPN indeed. Preempting the US national team playing the world’s most popular sport for … college softball??!!!
      .
      Absolutely ridiculous, to give up 40 minutes of the broadcast, including the entire first 25 minutes of the game, the US’s only goal and the Swiss tying goal, for a minor game in a completely meaningless sport that no one was watching anyway except the players’ families.
      .
      Thank heavens the whole game was shown on UniMás — which, by the way, is accessible in many markets over the air as the second digital channel of Univisión. US soccer fans should support the networks that support US soccer.
      .
      And Volkwagen and other sponsors should get their money back for that fiasco.

  1. it is appropriate that we are in a federation with El Salvador and Guatamala. US Soccer is Second class. Starting time preempted for a softball game.
