The U.S. men’s national team begins defense of its Concacaf Nations League title tonight in Austin, Texas, with a group-stage opener against Grenada at Q2 Stadium (10 p.m., ESPN+, TUDN).
The Americans are fresh off a pair of friendlies against fellow World Cup participants, posting a pair of shutouts in a 3-0 win against Morocco and 0-0 draw with Uruguay. Now attention turns back to Concacaf, where Gregg Berhalter’s side will be heavily favored to steamroll their Caribbean counterparts.
Grenada showed some fight in a 2-2 draw with El Salvador to kick off its own Nations League campaign and will face a USMNT lineup missing several key starters as Berhalter opted for some squad rotation ahead of his team’s trip to El Salvador on Tuesday.
Here is the starting lineup the Americans will deploy tonight against Grenada:
