Club América winger Alex Zendejas has declared his commitment to representing the United States and FC Juárez player Alan Soñora, who holds citizenship in Argentina and the USA, earned his first two caps for the USMNT against Serbia and Colombia in January.
If either player appears in the Nations League matches, they would be officially tied to the United States for international competition.
“First and foremost, our objective is to win both matches. We want to defend our Nations League title and also qualify for this summer’s Gold Cup, and to do that we need to get results,” USMNT head coach Anthony Hudson said ahead of the games this month.
“From there, we want to maintain the standards that we’ve set and continue to build on the accomplishments of the last four years. We walked away from the World Cup knowing that we are capable of more, and we’re excited to continue to move this group forward.”
