Joe Prince-Wright, Andy Edwards and Nick Mendola look ahead to the United States' next World Cup qualifying window, with big clashes against Canada and El Salvador on tap at the end of January.

The USMNT sits 2nd in CONCACAF after eight games, a single point behind leaders Canada ahead of the two sides’ showdown in the second game of the upcoming window. Mexico and Panama are a point behind the USMNT in 3rd and 4th, respectively.

UPDATE: Midfield lynchpin Tyler Adams and center back Chris Richards have departed USMNT camp after picking up injuries in the Yanks’ 2-0 defeat to Canada on Sunday. Adams suffered a hamstring injury and was subbed out after 69 minutes, while Richards hurt his ankle in the final few minutes of regular time. Berhalter did not announce any additions to the squad as a result of the departures.

Notably, stars Christian Pulisic, Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie, Timothy Weah, Brenden Aaronson, Yunus Musah and Sergiño Dest are among the 28 players called up, while Giovani Reyna remains unavailable as he recovers from the hamstring injury he picked up on international duty in September.
