His team is undefeated in the last four.

Team News

ESPN reported that according to Berhalter, goaltender Matt Turner will start in place of Zack Steffen, who is just returning from injury.

Central defenders Aaron Long and Walker Zimmerman are also trying to keep clean sheets, although it seems unlikely either will play the full 90 minutes.

Berhalter said: “We’ll probably come on at half-time, or maybe after that, and get another centre-back again.

Those others may well include Mark McKenzie and Erik Palmer-Brown, brought in to replace Cameron Carter-Vickers and Chris Richards.

Berhalter said: “Mark has played in some big games, Aaron and Walker have been playing together for three and a half years now so I think that group is familiar.

“And then it’s a good opportunity for Eric. He plays in Ligue 1. He plays against (Kylian) Mbappe and (Lionel) Messi and the top-class strikers there.”

Sticking on defense and left-back Sam Vines were too Approved start against Japan.

Another player to leave the original 26-man squad through injury is Valencia prodigy Yunus Musah, who is suffering from a groin injury, according to ESPN.

Part of the mass exodus from Barcelona in the summer, right-back Sergiño Dest has some real minutes under his belt after making his long-awaited Serie A debut for AC Milan on September 18.

In midfield, Weston McKennie has secured a regular role at Juventus – good news for the USA after missing much of last season through injury.

Musah’s substitute Johnny Cardoso should also be kept in mind after he started 17 games this season and scored three goals for Brazilian club Internacional.

Berhalter is also fortunate to have a solid selection of young attackers in form to choose from.

Attacking midfielder Brenden Aaronson has been in fine form for Leeds since joining from Red Bull Salzburg this summer.

Aaronson, 21, has started all six Premier League games this season and scored his first goal for Leeds in the 3-0 win over Chelsea.

After a long time on the treatment table, winger Gio Reyna has also gained a foothold at Borussia Dortmund in recent weeks.

The 19-year-old had two assists in his side’s 3-0 win over FC Copenhagen in the Champions League earlier this month.

Fellow striker Christian Pulisic has found it difficult to get minutes for Chelsea this season but perhaps his fate can turn after some time with the national side combined with the new manager at Stamford Bridge.

Up front, forward Josh Sargent could be America’s strongest threat.

Sargent is enjoying a solid run in front of goal with six out of 10 appearances in the Championship for Norwich City.
