BERHALTER CALLS 25 PLAYERS FOR NATIONS LEAGUE MATCHES
Following the completion of club matches last weekend, USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter has been working with a group of 25 players in preparation for the side’s Concacaf Nations League games against Cuba and at Canada this month. Seventeen players on the roster hail from clubs in Major League Soccer, while eight play abroad in England (4), Germany (3) and Turkey (1). Continuity continues to be a theme in this camp, as 24 of the 25 players have previously seen time with the USMNT this season, with 18-year-old Brenden Aaronson of the Philadelphia Union the only first-timer joining the group.

ALTIDORE, ZIMMERMAN WITHDRAW WITH INJURIES
Part of the original 26-player roster announced last week, forward Jozy Altidore and defender Walker Zimmerman were forced to withdraw from the squad following injuries sustained in their respective clubs’ MLS regular season finales on Sunday. Zimmerman was replaced by Atlanta United FC defender Miles Robinson, while no replacement was named for Altidore, leaving the squad at 25 players.

CNL PROVIDES COMPETITION, PREP FOR WORLD CUP QUALIFYING
Normally at this point of the cycle, the USMNT would still be playing friendlies in preparation for the semifinal round of World Cup qualifying. With the advent of the Concacaf Nations League, the team is now getting competitive matches in a home-and-away format that can replicates what the team will experience come the final round of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup which begins next September.

“This is competitive soccer,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said about the new competition. “For us, it’s playing away games and playing home games that leads to a result in a tournament format which is important. World Cup qualifying is an absolutely crucial event, and these games will help prepare us. Anytime there is a trophy on the line is exciting, and in the inaugural Nations League tournament we want to put ourselves in a position to win the tournament.”

LEAGUE A, GROUP A
Drawn into Nations League A, Group A, the USMNT will close out the year with home and away matches against Canada and Cuba. Those countries faced off during the September window, with Canada earning a 7-0 win on Sept. 7 in Toronto before a 1-0 victory in Cuba’s “home” match on Sept. 10 in Georgetown, Grand Cayman. With those results, the USMNT will have the goal of equaling Canada’s six points by the end of the October window.

2019-20 Concacaf Nations League A, Group A Standings

It’s a win on a number of levels for the U.S. Not only does a player of Dest’s pedigree help a first team that is seeking to establish cornerstones for the present and future, but he plays at a position of need. That Tyler Adams was going to be shoehorned into right back due to the lack of discernible fullback depth spoke volumes. Suddenly, a depth chart that includes Dest, Reggie Cannon–one of the few bright spots on the field for the U.S. recently–and veteran DeAndre Yedlin gives manager Gregg Berhalter some options. Dest can either fill the longstanding hole at left back, where he is comfortable, or he can deputize on the right, something he’s more accustomed to doing for his club.

Dest played at left back in his two caps with the U.S. senior team in September, displaying his potential and technical ability–though also his faults–against Mexico and Uruguay. Before anointing him as the next Roberto Carlos or Cafu–most would suffice for the next Steve Cherundolo, to be honest–though, it’s important to note he’s not an infallible player. Then again, what 18-year-old not named Kylian Mbappe is? Pulisic himself undressed Dest for his game-winning assist in the Champions League last week, and his 1-v-1 defending is a needs-improvement area.

WHAT IS THE NATIONS LEAGUE?
Similar to the recently launched UEFA Nations League, Concacaf’s version was created to maximize the quality, quantity and frequency of competitive matches for all of the confederation’s 41 Member Associations. Following a qualifying tournament that concluded earlier this year, teams were placed into one of three Leagues: A, B and C.

From there, teams were drawn into groups within their specific leagues, with each group providing a home-and-away format which runs during the course of the September, October and November FIFA international dates in 2019. At the end of the round-robin competition, the League A and B teams which finish last in their groups will be relegated to the lower league, while the group winners in Leagues B and C will be promoted to the higher league for the next edition of the competition.

Additionally, the four group winners from League A will advance to the Knockout Round where a semifinal and final will be played during the June FIFA international dates to crown the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League champion. The semifinal matchups will place the No. 1 seed vs. No. 4 and No. 2 seed vs. No. 3.

The tournament has major implication on future competitions as well. With Concacaf changing its World Cup qualifying format for the 2022 cycle, the top six teams in the FIFA World Rankings come June 2020 will advance straight to the region’s final round of qualifying, while those outside will have to play a longer, drawn out format for the chance to go to Qatar in 2022. The Nations League also will serve as qualifying for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.

USA-CUBA NOTES
The USA and Cuba meet for the 13th time on Friday, with the USMNT holding a dominant 10-1-1 all-time series lead.

The only two blemishes on the USA record came during the first two matches of the series – a 5-2 defeat to Cuba in the North American Football Championship on July 20, 1947 in Havana and 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw on Sept. 14, 1949 in Mexico City.

A week after that draw, the USMNT earned a 5-2 World Cup qualifying victory in Mexico City, beginning the current 10-game, 70-year winning streak which is the team’s longest against any international opponent all-time.

The teams last met on Oct. 7, 2016 in Havana, a 2-0 USMNT victory in the only friendly match played between the two nations.

Friday’s game comes 11 years to the day of the USMNT’s 6-1 World Cup Qualifying win against Cuba which was also played in Washington, D.C. at historic RFK Stadium.

USA ROSTER NOTES
The roster has an average age of 25 years, 168 days and 24 caps.

A total of 20 players return from the USMNT’s September camp.

Seventeen players represent 14 different Major League Soccer clubs, while eight hail from sides in Europe: England (4), Germany (3), Turkey (1).

Having last appeared for the side in March, defender DeAndre Yedlin returns after recovering from a groin injury which required surgery in May.

Defender Matt Miazga also returns to the USMNT fold after missing out on September camp with a hamstring injury.

D.C. United winger Paul Arriola also has the opportunity to play in familiar territory as the USMNT opens Nations League play at Audi Field in Washington, D.C.

Leading all Bundesliga goalkeepers with 34 saves this season, Zack Steffen also made his first save on a penalty kick in Fortuna Düsseldorf’s 2-1 defeat to Freiburg on Sunday.

Having registered three goals and two assists across 27 matches during his rookie season, 18-year-old midfielder Brenden Aaronson is the lone newbie on the USMNT roster.

Gyasi Zardes is only player on the roster with a goal against Cuba, having tallied in a 6-0 Gold Cup quarterfinal victory on July 18, 2015 in Baltimore.

Eight players on the roster have already collected double-digit caps in 2019: Zardes (13); Arriola, Long and Roldan (11 each); Lovitz, Morris, Ream and Steffen (10 each).

ATLANTA — Gonzalo “Pity” Martínez, the 2018 South American footballer of the year who joined Atlanta United for a Major League Soccer record transfer fee in January, did not feature in the Five Stripes’ 1-0 MLS Cup playoff win over the New England Revolution Saturday. Asked about his decision to sit El Pity, manager Frank de Boer left open the possibility Martínez could return to the starting lineup in this postseason. Everything de Boer said before that made it clear Martínez has started his last game for Atlanta in 2019.

Darlington Nagbe USA Soccer Jersey

“Right now, I think, with the three in midfield of Emerson Hyndman, Jeff [Larentowicz] and Darlington [Nagbe] is a good balance,” de Boer told reporters. “Then, I have one spare spot left in that position and that’s either [Ezequiel] Barco or Pity. Now I’m choosing for Barco, and he is doing well. I have choices always, but for me, I didn’t have any reasons to change him for Pity.”

Darlington Nagbe Authentic Jersey

De Boer played the same lineup — save for Michael Parkhurst replacing injured center back Miles Robinson — that defeated New England on the final day of MLS’ regular season two weeks ago. The manager has made it clear the midfield balance of Hyndman, Larentowicz and Nagbe is more important than fielding two dynamic players in Barco and Martínez. Atlanta’s No. 10 can play passes unmatched by anyone else on the team, but his defensive engine is far too inconsistent — non-existent at times — for de Boer’s liking in a single-elimination tournament.

Darlington Nagbe Womens Jersey

ATLANTA — Atlanta United’s MLS Cup title defense came to a surprising halt Wednesday night. The Five Stripes fell 2-1 to Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference final at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Substitute Nick DeLeon scored a 78th-minute winner for the Reds, evading three Atlanta defenders at the top of the penalty area. Franco Escobar, Jeff Larentowicz and Julian Gressel appeared to have DeLeon covered, but everyone backed off after the forward completed a circular dribbling move, and he fired from distance into the top corner. Darlington Nagbe was behind the play, slow to get up from a hard challenge.

“Obviously we were upset, we think it’s a foul on Darlington, and they catch us on a break,” Michael Parkhurst said in the locker room after the crushing defeat. “We get guys back. We do well to slow up their counterattack right on top of the box on DeLeon and have a few guys around him. I don’t know what happens. Everybody thinks that somebody else is going to stay with the ball and we start to pick up runners. For half a second we let him free, and he takes a great shot. We should have had more pressure on the ball there.”

“Well, I think Pity is always a player for the No. 10 position, and Hyndman is one of the three midfielders,” de Boer said. “I think you can play with Barco and Pity like we did versus Minnesota [in the U.S. Open Cup final], but the discipline that Emerson does and what he brings defensively in our box, that’s the balance that I’m searching for.

Cheap Nike Darlington Nagbe Jersey

“Of course, you can play with players like [Martínez], but it’s a big risk. I know that Emerson is very comfortable on the ball, and he combined well with Barco and Darlington, and they are three players who are very comfortable playing in small triangles. So, I had no reason to change. In the future it could change, but right now for me this is the best balance in the midfield. I look at the opponent always, and maybe next time it will be different.”

Martínez got off to a wretched start this season and criticized his manager in the media. He has improved in recent months and delivered some big moments for his team, including winning goals against D.C. United in regular-season play and Minnesota United in the U.S. Open Cup final. In his last five appearances, Martínez has two goals and two assists. His long history of playing well in important games has netted 11 trophies in his career. Still, Martínez has never lived up to the hype that came with his price tag. And with the season on the line in every game going forward, de Boer does not trust Martínez’s positives to outweigh his negatives.

“It was just a decision that Frank made,” Julian Gressel said of Martínez’s absence. “It was just that mindset from the coaching staff and we’ve trained like that all week. Pity was obviously upset at first, but today, he did a good job being up for it and being a good teammate supporting us. I’m sure we’re going to need him down the stretch.”

No doubt, Atlanta will need Martínez to offer his support as a good teammate. Perhaps he will be called upon to make an impact in a substitute appearance. But de Boer seemingly has settled on a lineup that he trusts to get a result. It is hard to imagine he will change his mind.

Plenty of interesting milestones – both individual and team-related – came out of the USMNT’s 7-0 goal fest to open up Concacaf Nations League play against Cuba on Friday night in Washington, D.C.

WESTON MCKENNIE RECORDS FASTEST HAT TRICK
Folks had barely taken their seats by the time Weston McKennie put home the game’s first goal in the first minute. McKennie’s strike has now officially been recorded as coming 32 seconds into the match, standing as the second-fastest goal in USMNT history behind only Clint Dempsey’s marker to open the scoring against Ghana during the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

While he didn’t set that record, McKennie stayed on mission, adding goals in the fifth and 13th minutes to register the fastest USMNT hat trick from the start of a match. McKennie’s 13-minute hat trick also sits second in USMNT history in terms of the minute span, coming just one minute behind Brian McBride’s effort against El Salvador during the Gold Cup quarterfinals on January 27, 2002.

Cobi Jones Authentic Jersey

Dating back to Archie Stark’s four-goal effort against Canada on Nov. 8, 1925, McKennie’s was the 19th hat trick in USMNT history, while the 21-year-old is the 15th different player to achieve the feat.

JORDAN MORRIS TIES SINGLE-GAME ASSIST RECORD
If McKennie has anyone specific to thank for helping him achieve the fastest hat trick in USMNT history, it’s Jordan Morris. The winger provided the assists on his first and fifth minute goals, and to be fair, McKennie also returned the favor to set up Morris to make it 3-0 in the ninth minute. Morris then laid off a pass for Josh Sargent’s 40th minute strike to tie the USMNT record for most assists in a single match.

WASHINGTON — On the surface, the challenge facing the US national team in Friday night’s Concacaf Nations League opener against Cuba differed starkly from what lies ahead four days later against Canada in Toronto.

Friday, the US dominated early against a dramatically overmatched opponent, saw Weston McKennie score a hat trick by the 13th minute and eventually coasted to a 7-0 win.

In the latter, they’ll be asked to meet the intensity of a partisan Canadian crowd and an intriguingly talented opponent fighting potentially for their World Cup lives.

Yet there’s a symmetry in the two fixtures in asking the Americans to rise to occasions when a heightened response might not come naturally. On Friday, they succeeded as well as coach Gregg Berhalter could ask.

“From the start of the game, you see the focus of the players and the intensity of the players, and it’s good to see,” Berhalter said after Friday’s rout. “And I think we maintained that focus and intensity for the entire first half. So overall I think it was a worthwhile game for us to continue to grow.”

Josh Sargent, Jordan Morris and Christian Pulisic also scored on a night that set US modern-era records for the highest scoring first half (6-0) and the quickest hat trick from kickoff. McKennie and Pulisic also combined on a sequence that resulted in a 37th minute own goal. And Morris became the third American to record three assists in a game for his country, joining Cobi Jones and Landon Donovan.

None of that really mattered to the US camp, who probably recognized that despite qualifying for League A of this competition, Cuba isn’t at the same level as their Group A opponents.

It wasn’t the scoreline or the history that rescued this from being a wasted night. It was the attitude they brought to Audi field.

“A lot of players in this situation, it’s easy to kind of bring your foot off that gas pedal,” said FC Dallas defender Reggie Cannon, who assisted McKennie’s third goal. “The killer instinct of this team, maybe for lack of a better term, has been missing for the last few years. I think that killer instinct is something the US national team needs. And you could really see it tonight.”

Said goalkeeper Brad Guzan: “We can’t control the opponent, we go out and play whoever we’re meant to play against. In that sense, it was a professional performance.”

Sure, rising the occasion Tuesday will be a bigger challenge. Berhalter freely admitted Canada will be clearly of a “higher quality” than Cuba. But as for the suggestion that the ease of Friday’s victory is somehow harmful to that aim? Berhalter insisted the opposite.

“We wanted the game to go like this to be honest, because it’s cost us less energy,” Berhalter said. “If I could’ve written the game up, it would’ve been exactly like this. Score early. Score many goals early. And then cruise. And that was important. I think we saved ourselves. I think we’ll be fit and ready to go in this game.”

That mark has only been achieved three times, by two different players – Cobi Jones and Landon Donovan. See the full details below:

SIX GOALS IN A HALF
As a team, the USMNT’s six-goal output during the first 45 minutes also set a USMNT record for goals in one half.

RALEIGH, N.C. — For decades, U.S. soccer players have set out for Europe to hatch or elevate pro careers. Their primary destinations have been the top tiers in England and Germany, the Dutch league and the Scandinavian circuit.

Few have landed — and even fewer have thrived — in Spain, home to La Liga, to the epic rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid, to Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Shaquell Moore USA Soccer Jersey

This season, though, along came Shaquell Moore, a largely unknown American defender for Levante UD by way of Florida, Georgia, Texas and two smaller Spanish teams, one of which didn’t pay him for months and soon went under.

Known by one name at his Valencia-based club, “Shaq” has started five La Liga matches and entered as a sub in another. He started twice in the Copa del Rey tournament. His rise earned a first invitation to U.S. national team training camp, which began this past week in North Carolina and will culminate Tuesday with a friendly against Paraguay at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary.

At 21, Moore is among several promising young players enlisted to begin turning the fortunes of a program that failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1986.

“All the guys are welcoming and it’s been an easy transition,” the right back said. “I know a good bunch of these guys, so it’s been cool.”

Shaquell Moore Authentic Jersey

He has a Serbian accent, scores goals in the Netherlands and may help rebuild U.S. men’s soccer

Moore was well known inside the U.S. system — he captained the under-17 national team and started twice at the 2015 Under-20 World Cup — but until this past fall, had not made enough of a splash in his pro career to warrant a look on the senior level. Among the top young players overseas, he toiled in the shadows of, among others, German-based Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie.

Last fall, after spending a year with Levante’s reserve squad, Moore began to earn first-team assignments. Injuries to others allowed him to climb the depth chart, and his debut came in a cup match against Girona on Oct. 26. Three days later — and four days before his 21st birthday — he started a league game at Eibar. “It was a really good week,” he said.

GREENWOOD, S.C.— Hydro One Premium Beverages, the maker of natural functional beverages, is proud to announce that United States Men’s Soccer Team player Shaquell Moore has joined their growing team.

Shaquell Moore Womens Jersey

“It goes without saying that we are very excited to have such a young, talented, and accomplished player, Shaq Moore, join our Hydro One Beverages Team. Shaq is one of the youngest USMNT player and is one of the future stars in the world of soccer,” said Sammy Nasrollahi CEO and CO-Founder. “What excites us even more is that Shaq has the same determination when it comes to leading a healthier lifestyle for himself, his family, and his rapidly growing fan base.” We are looking forward to both a personal and business relationship for many years to come,” Nasrollahi stated.

“My name is Shaq Moore, and I am a member of the United States Men’s National Soccer Team and a proud partner of Hydro One Premium Beverages. I love all the products, especially how they are natural, and my favorite is BÖDE SPORT. What I love about it, it is less sugar and more potassium along with other ingredients that helps me with cramps. To go along, I have close family members who suffer from diabetes and the product not only helps me but my loved ones too, ” Shaq explained.

Shaquell Moore Youth Jersey

Only three U.S. national team players have ever started in La Liga: goalkeeper Kasey Keller (Rayo Vallecano, 1999-2001), forward Jozy Altidore (Villarreal, 2008, ’10-11) and defender Oguchi Onyewu (Malaga, 2012-13). Keller and Onyewu were deep into their careers; Altidore was with his second club.

On consecutive weekends, Moore played 90 minutes against Las Palmas, Atletico Madrid and Malaga.

The biggest moment came Jan. 7, when he started against Barcelona at famed Camp Nou stadium. Playing on the right corner meant confronting superstar Andres Iniesta and Jordi Alba, an elite left back. There was also interaction with the greatest of them all, Messi. In the 65th minute, behind by two goals in what became a 3-0 defeat, Moore forced Marc-Andre ter Stegen into making a superb save.

For a young American facing soccer royalty, “there is no time to reflect,” he said. “If you think about it, ‘Oh, I am actually here’ and give them too much respect, they can kill you. I was just thinking about competing. You learn you have to be ready. In this league, you have to be 100 percent aware of everything all the time.”

Cheap Nike Shaquell Moore Jersey

Moore earned good reviews, including two 7s on the 1-10 scale issued by various media outlets.

Four days later, he started against Espanyol in a round-of-16 cup defeat. Since then, with veterans Pedro Lopez and Coke ahead of him in the pecking order, Moore has spent most of his recent time with the reserve squad.

Nonetheless, it’s been a breakthrough campaign for a player born in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., who moved at age 10 to greater Atlanta with his family — his father represented Trinidad and Tobago a few times — and entered residency with the U.S. U-17 team in Bradenton, Fla., and then FC Dallas’s academy. However, he said, “my goal was always to go to Europe.”

Moore’s stint with third-division Huracan was over in six months because of the third-division club’s financial issues. “I was thinking, ‘Wow, I came all the way over here for this?’ It makes you grow up a little bit. I’m glad I stuck it out.”

This is true of most relationships in life, they take time to build up and time to break down. In sports, at least as seasons finish, the end comes quickly and without pretense. Fans almost always wish they had more time, one more game, one more tailgate, one more win.

Keegan Rosenberry USA Soccer Jersey

But even in victory, there are always more questions than answers.

Here’s a list of the most prominent of the former and a guess at some of the latter, starting with the players.

The 2020 Philadelphia Union
At the end of the 2018 season, the Union moved on from players like Josh Yaro, Richie Marquez, Marcus Epps, and Jay Simpson by not renewing their contracts. None were large contributors and only Epps is playing American professional soccer today, albeit sparingly for New York Red Bulls.

Simpson’s Wikipedia page has him listed on the roster of Cypriot side Nea Salamis Famagusta FC. This is perhaps a fitting stop for the journeyman because the team “has been a refugee club since the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus, when Turkey occupied the northern part of the island. The club is temporarily based in Larnaca.”

Keegan Rosenberry Authentic Jersey

As roster decisions loom this autumn, it’s likely the team will move on from much more talented players than they did the year before; players like Jamiro Monteiro (whose loan from Metz will expire and price will be too high to keep), Aurellien Collin (who filled in on a one-year deal and might just retire back to France where he was when the Union came calling last year), Warren Creavalle (who is starting caliber for many MLS teams but hasn’t found his place in the Union midfield), and of course Marco Fabian (who was among the team’s most productive players but found himself a useful cog in the Union machine less often than he did the odd man out).

Ok, Turner’s probably not next in line for real, but I’d be happy to see him as the third ‘keeper in this camp or the next. But my guess is we’ll wait until January.

Keegan Rosenberry Womens Jersey

For those of you wondering where Ethan Horvath is: mostly on the bench. The 24-year-old has lost his starting job for Club Brugge, though he is playing in Belgian Cup games. Given that and his struggles with the ball at his feet, he’s going to have to do a lot of work to get back into the picture here.

RIGHT BACKS (2): Reggie Cannon (FC Dallas), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United)

Cannon has not been at his best since the Gold Cup, which is not unusual for a young player coming off his first major tournament. We’ve seen that kind of dip in performance repeatedly over the decades, and it’s not limited to the US. It’s kind of a natural thing when transitioning from club to country and back again.

But he’s been good enough and is promising enough to not lose his spot on the roster.

Yedlin, meanwhile, returned to action this week for Newcastle after a lengthy injury absence. He’s played only 16 minutes in the past six months so it’d be perfectly understandable if Berhalter left him with his club to reintegrate. But I’m going to assume DeAndre gets a call for these games and a brief cameo at the end of one or both, since he has to reintegrate with the US as well.

Keegan Rosenberry Youth Jersey

Next in line: Keegan Rosenberry (Colorado Rapids)

I don’t actually think Rosenberry has any chance of getting a call, largely because the two left-backs on this roster are both natural right-backs. But he’s been better than both Cannon and Nick Lima this year, and his passing matches what Berhalter looks for from this spot:

Matthew Doyle

@MattDoyle76
This is really nice stuff from the Rapids, and a good example of Rosenberry’s versatility when pushing up (that’s him w/ the one-touch through the lines to Serna).

Kei’s gotta head that back across.

Cheap Nike Keegan Rosenberry Jersey

There are certainly others on the Union depth chart today that might not be there come March.

For the first time since he was drafted, the Union will have a real chance to move on from goalkeeper Andre Blake should they want to. They have this chance because Jamaica’s national team is finally ranked high enough that a move to England is in play, and two years ago Brighton and Crystal Palace were kicking Blake’s tires.
Ray Gaddis already has his place penciled into the Union’s Ring of Honor, as well as Jim Curtin’s undying love. Though he’s fended off challenges to his starting Right Back spot since he was drafted (goodbye, Sheanon Williams, au revior, Keegan Rosenberry), perhaps this is the year he’ll be usurped.
Jack Elliott was as good as gold to suit up for the Union this year, starting every single match. He also has a European passport of course, and if there’s one thing English soccer coaches love it’s a tall center back with good feet.
Coming to the end of his contract, Fafa Picault might be the odd man out of a crowded attack. Or he might just adapt like he did in 2019, in which he finished 6th on the team in goals and tied for 4th in assists. Maybe he’s the answer at the #10 position, a spot he played in the friendly against PUMAS, did this,…

…and all but broke the Mexican side’s midfield who were issued two red cards while chasing the Gazelle.

As some players shuffle out, there will be a new group who shuffle in. To that end, as much as fans value the contributions of players like Jamiro Monteiro today, even the most plugged-in of them had likely never heard of the maestro before he signed with the side this spring.

Ernst Tanner, Chris Alright, and the team’s scouting network have proven themselves adept thus far at finding diamonds in the rough (see also: Wagner, Kai and Pryzbylko, Kacper) and there shouldn’t be much doubt as to whether the new stock will be talented enough to make do.

TORONTO — Daniel Lovitz’s 2019 season has been filled with ups and downs.

Lovitz earned his first cap with the U.S. men’s national team in January and has since played 13 times. He also featured in the crushing 2-0 defeat to Canada at BMO Field earlier this week. At the club level with the Montreal Impact, he lifted his second Voyageurs Cup. Lovitz was also left out of the 18 by Wilmer Cabrera for the Impact’s season finale.

“It was a discussion between me and the head coach,” Lovitz said. “I’ll keep that between us but more than anything it was nice to be on the same page about it. Obviously, I expressed to him that I wanted to play but I respected his decision and it’s one of those things.”

Ahead of the U.S.’s loss to Canada, Gregg Berhalter spoke about Lovitz’s progression with the national team. Berhalter enjoyed what the Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania native has been giving his squad.

“He’s done a good job, he really has,” Berhalter said. “What I really like with Danny is that he can attack. He’s very aggressive going forward. He’s a competitor as well.”

Tonight’s USMNT Starting XI vs. Canada: 1-Zack Steffen, 2-DeAndre Yedlin, 4-Michael Bradley, 5-Daniel Lovitz, 8-Weston McKennie, 10-Christian Pulisic, 11-Jordan Morris, 13-Tim Ream (capt.), 15-Cristian Roldan, 19-Josh Sargent, 23-Aaron Long

Substitutes: 12-Sean Johnson, 22-Brad Guzan, 3-Matt Miazga, 6-Wil Trapp, 7-Paul Arriola, 9-Gyasi Zardes, 14-Jackson Yueill, 16-Nick Lima, 17-Sebastian Lletget, 18-Corey Baird, 21-Tyler Boyd, 20-Reggie Cannon

Starting XI Cap Numbers (including this match): Michael Bradley (151), DeAndre Yedlin (60), Tim Ream (38), Jordan Morris (37), Christian Pulisic (34), Cristian Roldan (18), Weston McKennie (17), Zack Steffen (17), Aaron Long (14), Daniel Lovitz (12), Josh Sargent (11)

Tonight’s Starting XI has an average age of 25 years, 219 days and 37 caps.

USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter makes four changes to the starting XI that faced Cuba, inserting Zack Steffen in goal, Aaron Long and DeAndre Yedlin on the back line and Michael Bradley in central midfield.

Tim Ream captains the USMNT for the fourth time tonight. The team is 2-0-1 when Ream wears the armband.

Having returned from groin surgery, DeAndre Yedlin makes his first USMNT appearance since the 1-1 draw against Chile on March 26.

Toronto FC midfielder Michael Bradley becomes the first USMNT player to feature in an away game in his current club’s home stadium.

Having started his career with Toronto FC in 2014 and played his whole professional career in Canada, current Montreal Impact defender Daniel Lovitz is the other Canadian-based player in the USMNT lineup tonight.

Six players will appear in their first away match in official competition tonight: Long, Lovitz, McKennie, Roldan, Sargent and Steffen.

Aaron Long and Tim Ream pair in central defense for the second time, having previously worked the 1-1 draw against Uruguay on Sept. 10 in St. Louis.

Coming off his hat-trick performance against Cuba, Weston McKennie earns his 10th appearance of 2019 tonight.

Interest in returning to Montreal
In his introductory news conference, Impact sporting director Olivier Renard expressed his interest to build an attacking style. When asked about potentially contributing to the Impact’s new era, Lovitz simply said: “I would love to.”

“I was a winger for the majority of my life and my professional career so it’s something that I have a natural knack for,” Lovitz added. “It’s been an adjustment to just pick the right spots, to do that and to be on a team that is constantly trying to attack from wide areas.”

The fullback had an informal conversation with Renard. For him, the sit-down with the Impact’s new sporting director was “to get on the same page and put a face to a name more than anything.”

“I think that anyone that knows MLS knows that things operate quickly and when you least expect it sometimes,” Lovitz said. “Especially now that the Impact are not in the playoffs, I think a lot of other teams still focused on the current year in the season and they’ll kind of reevaluate things when the dust settles.

“For us, it’s a head start to try to figure out what we want to look like next year and who’s going to be available. That stuff always plays out and players don’t always have a say in what happens.”

Growing pains
Playing at BMO Field last Tuesday brought back memories of Toronto FC, the club where Lovitz started his professional career. He hadn’t made the transition to left back yet and struggled to find regular minutes.

“For me it was about sticking around and doing what I can do to impress the coaches, whoever they were at the time, and to make sure that I was consistent when it counted,” he said. “At times [in Toronto] I didn’t think I did a great job with that and I was able to transition into Montreal and find some stability in a position that I was able to call home as a left back and move forward from there.”

Lovitz added that one of the challenges for him growing as a left back in Montreal has been finding balance. He needed to know when to move forward and stay back with star left winger Ignacio Piatti. He believed that playing for the USMNT helped him play through that struggle as a left back.

“We struck a good balance at times and we were incredibly dangerous,” Lovitz said. “I think the structure [at the U.S. national team] has been good for me I think especially this camp. The [Cuba] game, just what we’ve been able to put together structurally, I feel the most like myself in the position and I’m able to get across half field and get touches on the ball and I love that.”

FAIRFAX, Va.— Called into US national team camp for just the third time in his career, San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Jackson Yueill is already feeling a duty to help guide the program into a new era and identity under coach Gregg Berhalter.

Jackson Yueill USA Soccer Jersey

“Being able to play at more practices and games with everyone, definitely the comfortability level is increasing, and [I’m] getting to show my way of football,” the 22-year-old central midfielder said earlier this week, ahead of the US’s Concacaf Nations League opener against Cuba Friday (7 pm ET | FS1, UniMas, TUDN). “I think the calmness, the possession that we’re trying to build here, I definitely think I’ll be able to help in that sense.”

“Calmness” was not exactly Matias Almeyda’s MO in charge of Earthquakes this season, in which they employed a frenetic, man-marking press that took the rebuilding club within a win of the 2019 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs.

Jackson Yueill Authentic Jersey

A holding midfielder with liberty to go forward at times with San Jose, Yueill has shown promise in adjusting to Berhalter’s more nuanced approach in his two international appearances to date.

After debuting in a 1-0 friendly defeat to Jamaica back in June, in which nearly everyone in the US squad played poorly, Yueill was a very active distributor in a 1-1 draw against Uruguay, completing nearly 50 passes.

HICAGO (Oct. 8, 2019) – U.S. Men’s National Team forward Jozy Altidore has been forced to withdraw from the roster for the team’s Concacaf Nations League matches against Cuba and Canada following an injury suffered in the MLS regular season finale on Sunday.

Altidore left Toronto FC’s match against Columbus Crew SC in the 70th minute on Sunday afternoon.

The training camp roster now stands at 25 players ahead of the USMNT’s opening match of the 2019-20 Concacaf Nations League against Cuba on Friday, Oct. 11 at Audi Field in Washington D.C. (7 p.m. ET; FS1, UniMás and TUDN). The team then plays its first away match of 2019 when it visits Canada at BMO Field in Toronto on Tuesday, Oct. 15 (7:30 p.m. ET; ESPN2, UniMás and TUDN).

Jackson Yueill’s night in #USAvURU, via Opta: 49/53 passing (granted, 1 missed pass was an ugly turnover that led to a Uruguay transition), 1 shot (wide), 7 defensive actions. He’s still green & not really a 6 IMO, but I want to see more of him @ int’l level.

“Definitely the way that we play at San Jose is much different,” Yueill said. “I think the movements [with the US] are a little bit subtler. The way we play at the club level is just kind of rambunctious, just a lot of movements, and throwing opponents off. Here it’s more tactical.”

As one of the attackers who could benefit from Yueill’s field vision, as well as one well versed in that “more tactical” system from his time under Berhalter at Columbus Crew SC, Gyasi Zardes has seen Yueill make definite progress.

“There’s so much promise for him, just because of the way he’s controlling the ball and also paying attention to what the coaches are asking of him, and then adapting and changing his game,” Zardes said. “It’s a good character trait to have and I think he’s going to be a phenomenal player.”

There is near-universal acknowledgement of a learning curve for players in Berhalter’s project, and Yueill is no different. Even so, his club and international teammate Nick Lima has advised Yueill to remember the traits that won him these opportunities in the first place.

“[I’ve told him] Just to play his game,” the Quakes fullback said. “Because he’s so good, so technical and so smart. He sees things that a lot of players don’t. So just stick to that.”

USMNT ROUTS CUBA 7-0 FRIDAY IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
The U.S. Men’s National Team opened Concacaf Nations League play in impressive fashion, routing Cuba 7-0 on Friday night at Audi Field in Washington, D.C. The side used a hat trick from Weston McKennie and a Jordan Morris strike inside the first 13 minutes to put the game away early. Morris then forced an own goal not long after the hour mark, before Josh Sargent gave the side a 6-0 halftime lead. Captaining the team for the third time, Christian Pulisic recorded his 14th goal and first from the penalty spot in the 62nd minute, capping the scoring and sending the USMNT north to Canada with its largest margin of victory of the Gregg Berhalter era.

RECORDS TIED AND SET VS. CUBA
With three goals inside 13 minutes, USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie recorded the fastest hat trick from the start of a game in team history. It was also the second-fastest in minutes spanned, coming in just one minute behind Brian McBride, who tallied three goals in 12 minutes in a 4-0 Gold Cup quarterfinal victory against El Salvador on Jan. 27, 2002.

With a trio of assists, Jordan Morris became just the third player in USMNT history to achieve the record of three in a match, tying Cobi Jones (Nov. 14, 1993 vs. Cayman Islands) and Landon Donovan (April 1, 2009 vs. Trinidad & Tobago and July 21, 2013 vs. El Salvador).

Finally, the USMNT’s six first-half goals in the match set a new record for goals in a half among matches which goal times are recorded (going back to at least 1968). Interestingly, the previous record of five goals all came in the second half of matches.

BERHALTER APPROACHING 10-WIN MILESTONE
Friday’s 7-0 victory against Cuba also marked Gregg Berhalter’s ninth as USMNT head coach.

Set to manage his 16th match on Tuesday against Canada, a win would see Berhalter become the second-fastest USMNT manager to achieve double-digit victories after only Bob Bradley, who achieved his 10th win in his 11th match as head coach in 2007.

MILES ROBINSON DEPARTS CAMP WITH HAMSTRING INJURY
The USMNT roster was reduced to 24 players on Saturday with defender Miles Robinson returning to Atlanta United FC after suffering a left hamstring strain in training following Friday night’s win against Cuba. Robinson was summoned to camp earlier in the week as an injury replacement for Walker Zimmerman who suffered a concussion in LAFC’s regular season finale.

TORONTO (AP) — The U.S. men’s soccer team lost to Canada for the first time in 34 years, allowing second-half goals to Alphonso Davis and Lucas Cavallini in a 2-0 defeat Tuesday night in the CONCACAF Nations League.

Stitched USA Soccer Jerseys

A little over two years after the Americans failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup by losing at Trinidad and Tobago, they saw their 17-match unbeaten streak against their northern neighbor come to an end.

The U.S. men’s national team—and let’s be clear, the U.S. Soccer Federation as a whole—are in crisis again. And the whole thing makes you wonder if anyone learned any lessons at all from the monumental failure to qualify for World Cup 2018.

On Tuesday, Gregg Berhalter’s USMNT lost 2-0 to Canada in Toronto in the Concacaf Nations League, a loss that was deserved, a loss that was historic (the first time Canada has beaten the U.S. in 34 years) and a loss that probably should have been by an even bigger margin. It was the latest example that the U.S., whose best teams were always hard to play against, has lost that identity in the last five years of freefall.

It was one thing to lose 1-0 to Mexico in the 2019 Gold Cup final. But to lose 3-0 to the Mexicans after that (while failing to execute on the basics) and 2-0 to the Canadians in a competitive game are other things entirely.

Cheap Nike USA Soccer Jerseys

Under Berhalter—as was the case under Jurgen Klinsmann and Bruce Arena—the U.S. is worse than the sum of its parts. The talent that is there is being asked by Berhalter to adopt a play-out-of-the-back tactical approach that isn’t suited to the players at hand, who would be better off using a more direct style that (combined with pressing) would help keep the ball in the opponent’s half of the field. If Berhalter doesn’t adapt now, he should be out of a job soon.

Davies turned in a cross from Scott Arfield. Goalkeeper Zack Steffen put a palm up to block Davies’ shot but the ball still dropped over the line as Canada’s players rushed to join Davies for a raucous celebration.

The 21st-ranked U.S., coming off last week’s opening 7-0 home rout of Cuba, had nine wins and eight draws against Canada since a 2-0 exhibition defeat at Vancouver, British Columbia, in April 1985.

Canada is trying to climb into the top six in the region in FIFA rankings, which will be used next summer to determine the nations in the hexagonal will produce the three direct qualifiers from the North and Central American and Caribbean region for the 2022 World Cup.

The U.S. and Canada meet again Nov. 15 at Orlando, Florida, and the U.S. faces Cuba four days later George Town, Cayman Islands.

American coach Gregg Berhalter made four changes, inserting Steffen, right back DeAndre Yedlin, central defender Aaron Long and midfielder Michael Bradley. Yedlin made his first international appearance since March 26 after recovering from groin surgery.

With the departure, the USMNT roster stands at 24 players heading into Tuesday’s match against Canada. Teams are allowed to dress 23 players for Concacaf Nations League games (20 field players and three goalkeepers).

CNL PROVIDES COMPETITION, PREP FOR WORLD CUP QUALIFYING
Normally at this point of the cycle, the USMNT would still be playing friendlies in preparation for the semifinal round of World Cup qualifying. With the advent of the Concacaf Nations League, the team is now getting competitive matches in a home-and-away format that can replicate what the team will experience come the final round of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup which begins next September.

“This is competitive soccer,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said about the new competition. “For us, it’s playing away games and playing home games that leads to a result in a tournament format which is important. World Cup qualifying is an absolutely crucial event, and these games will help prepare us. Any time there is a trophy on the line and in the inaugural Nations League tournament [there is], we want to put ourselves in a position to win.”

LEAGUE A, GROUP A
Drawn into Nations League A, Group A, the USMNT closes out the year with home and away matches against Canada and Cuba. Those countries faced off during the September window, with Canada earning a 7-0 win on Sept. 7 in Toronto before a 1-0 victory in Cuba’s “home” match on Sept. 10 in Georgetown, Grand Cayman. With those results, the USMNT will have the goal of equaling Canada’s six points by the end of the October window.
