USMNT roster for final round of 2022 World Cup qualifiers
USMNT roster news: Gregg Berhalter has called up 27 players for the Yanks’ final three 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Mexico (away), Panama (home) and Costa Rica (away) beginning next week.
Sergiño Dest was included in the initial squad release, but the Barcelona right back pulled out after suffering an injury in Europa League action. Frequently used backups Reggie Cannon and DeAndre Yedlin are both in the squad, plus George Bello and Shaq Moore were both called up due to a positive COVID-19 test for Cannon and Yedlin being suspended.
Weston McKennie remains unavailable after breaking his foot earlier this month. The Juventus midfielder will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season. He is expected to return to full health this summer.
UPDATE: Brenden Aaronson was forced from Red Bull Salzburg’s starting lineup last Sunday and had to pull out, while Sergino Dest also suffered an injury and is out.
UPDATE POST-MEXICO: Both DeAndre Yedlin and Tim Weah will miss the home qualifier versus Panama due to suspension for yellow card accumulation.
