No replacement will be named ahead of #USAvJAM.
No replacement will be added
The USMNT manager Gregg Berhlater has decided not to call up a replacement for the veteran defender who started the last two World Cup qualifying games last month against Canada and Honduras. The reason is because Walker Zimmerman was already called in to replace Tim Ream over the weekend.
The United States is holding camp in Austin, Texas ahead of the three games they have ahead during this international break. Coach Gregg Berhlater has 26 players in camp that started today ahead of the first match of this international window.
The road to the 2022 FIFA World Cup will resume for the USMNT on 7 October against Jamaica at the Q2 stadium in Austin. Three days later they will go on the road to face Panama at the Estadio Rommel Fernández and close the window at home against Costa Rica at the Lower.com Field.
