1. Gregg Berhalter names 27-player roster U.S. MNT training camp (Soccer Wire)

Gregg Berhalter has named the 27 players that will be a part of training camp with one additional player being announced at a later date. They will train at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center. This will be Berhalter’s first practice and match as head coach.

“The U.S. opens the 2019 campaign against Panama on Jan. 27 at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.”

One week later, the Men’s National Team takes on regional rival Costa Rica in Avaya Stadium in San Jose, California. This game will act as preparation for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

“In putting together this domestic-based roster, we started with a number of players who we think can be a core part of the group moving forward. We then looked at players that excelled this year in Major League Soccer, and finally chose players that can play a specific role in our game model.”

We are excited to see how this team performs and we wish them luck for the future.
