The final list of 23 players for the Gold Cup is due by midnight of June 5. The official announcement will take place the following day.

“After a great week of training, we now enter the phase of playing competitive matches,” Berhalter said. “The game against Jamaica will represent an opportunity for us to evaluate new prospects as well continue to develop the group for the Gold Cup. We are excited about the group coming in and the opportunity ahead of us this summer.”
