What is the USMNT roster for Sunday’s friendly against Northern Ireland?
USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter has called up a young squad for Sunday’s meeting in Belfast but four members of his 26-man squad didn’t made the trip.
The United States Men’s team (USMNT) are in action on Sunday – they take on Northern Ireland at Windsor Park in Belfast in a friendly, one of a series of friendlies programmed as warm-ups for their CONCACAF Nations League semi-date with Honduras in June, and the 2021 Gold Cup the following month.

USMNT unbeaten since October 2019
Gregg Berhalter’s team looked impressive in their 4-1 win over Jamaica in Austria on Thursday. Sergiño Dest, Brenden Aaronson and Sebastian Lletget got on the scoresheet as the team’s unbeaten run was extended to eight games – their last defeat was in October 2019 when they were beaten 2-0 by Canada in the Nations League qualifiers.
Berhalter had originally listed 26 players in his squad ahead of the Jamaica game and had expected to be without seven players due to travel restrictions in place because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The situation has changed since then, meaning that Chris Richards, Gio Reyna and Josh Sargent are available but John Brooks, Reggie Cannon, Tyler Adams and Tim Weah have dropped out. The list includes newcomers Young Boys forward Jordan Siebatcheu, who gained his first cap against Jamaica last week and Hobro IK midfielder Christian Cappis who along with Roma defender Bryan Reynolds will be hoping to make their debut on Sunday. Caen’s Nicholas Gioacchini has been recalled.
The full USMNT roster:
Goalkeepers: Ethan Horvath, Chituru Odunze, Zack Steffen.
Defenders: Sergiño Dest, Aaron Long, Matt Miazga, Erik Palmer-Brown, Tim Ream, Bryan Reynolds , Chris Richards, Antonee Robinson.
Midfielders: Brenden Aaronson, Kellyn Acosta, Christian Cappis, Luca de la Torre, Sebastian Lletget, Yunus Musah, Owen Otasowie.
Forwards: Daryl Dike, Nicholas Gioacchini, Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Josh Sargent, Jordan Siebatcheu.
