What was said?
“We are excited to gather this group together as we compete to win the Nations League trophy,” USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter said.
“It’s been a great year for our player pool and the unprecedented successes of winning multiple league and cup championships. Our focus now becomes continuing this success with the National Team.”
However, there are some notable absences from this U.S. team, including Daryl Dike, who many see as a contender to start for the U.S. up top after shining on loan with Barnsley this season.
Meanwhile, youngsters Matthew Hoppe and Justin Che, who were called in to camp ahead of the Switzerland friendly, were also not included.
