The United States continue their preparations for the Gold Cup, and their stars have begun to arrive; Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams will arrive on June 6 and 11, respectively.

On Tuesday, coach Gregg Berhalter confirmed the presence of Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams with the US men's national team. Both players have been named in the final squad heading to the Gold Cup.

Everything is in place for Pulisic to reach American soil - barring setbacks - to dispute his first CONCACAF Gold Cup, and the US team announced that the former Borussia Dortmund player would join his team-mates on Thursday, June 6, at their training camp.

Tyler Adams will be the last to join the US national team camp and is not scheduled to join them until Tuesday, June 11, just four days before the start of the summer tournament.
