USMNT upcoming schedule — September friendlies after Copa America flameout

VBxBrfxk_C7v
Joe Prince-Wright, Andy Edwards and Nick Mendola chat about what progress would look like in the United States' Nations League matches against Grenada and El Salvador, who they're most interested to watch and more.

It’s go time for the United States men’s national team program in a big year, one that started with a friendly in Texas as the January camp gave opportunities to youngsters.

It was not only an MLS-only affair, it was a very young unit taking on an inexperienced group of Slovenia upstarts with around 130 total caps between the two sides. The player ratings show some performances beyond their years, too. Those youngsters still have a big fight on their hands to make in-roads into Gregg Berhalter’s A-side, but made their cases for the Olympics in Paris, too.

In fact only two January participants — Miles Robinson and Timothy Tillman — were in the fray for matches against Colombia and Brazil this month in Stateside pre-Copa America friendlies. The Colombia one went quite poorly. Brazil? That one was fun!

Then came Copa America and a very workable group stage against Uruguay, Bolivia, and Panama. Unfortunately, it has not worked according to plan as a win over Bolivia was followed up by a loss to Panama and a loss to Uruguay. It’s not good enough, and we may again see change at the top of the USMNT.

The Yanks closed out their 2023 with a CONCACAF Nations League quarterfinal against Trinidad and Tobago, and getting past the Caribbean nation — home and away — guaranteed the USMNT a spot in the Copa America to be played across the USA next summer.

Before that? The Yanks moved past a 3-1 steamrolling by Germany, a loss which included a terrific Christian Pulisic goal by clobbering Ghana 4-0. The split came a month after the 2026 World Cup cycle officially began with a 3-0 win over Uzbekistan in St. Louis, followed by a 4-0 blowout of Oman in St. Paul.

A late three-goal first-leg explosion put the Yanks just 90 minutes away from their place, but a Sergino Dest tantrum led to a red card and a tougher second leg.

Still, the USMNT went in the draw for Copa America 2024.

What was the state of the USMNT at the end of 2023?

After reaching the last 16 of the 2022 World Cup, the USMNT’s Summer of 2023 was a mixed bag.

The ‘A team’ rocked the CONCACAF Nations League but a young, MLS-heavy team showed its inexperience and that it expected too much from its depth at the confederation level.

The program was very much in transition as Anthony Hudson was in temporary charge and then fellow Berhalter assistant B.J. Callaghan took over on an interim basis until Gregg Berhalter retook the wheel.

Callaghan delivered the CONCACAF Nations League title, as the USMNT beat Canada 2-0 in the final to secure a second-straight trophy. Berhalter’s assistant stayed in charge for the Gold Cup this summer, but Berhalter has been put back in charge after being given a contract until the end of the 2026 World Cup.

The Yanks didn’t win the Gold Cup, however, as they wobbled to a 1-1 draw with Jamaica and pounded St. Kitts and Nevis as well as Trinidad and Tobago. But they needed penalties to get past Canada before falling to Panama in spot kicks. It’s not a huge surprise given the stretch in depth expected from the player pool, but disappointing nonetheless.

After both the general manager (Brian McBride) and sporting director (Earnie Stewart) left in recent months, Matt Crocker has arrived as U.S. Soccer’s new sporting director and has made some huge decisions (with more coming up) as the USMNT’s talented youngsters need help from elsewhere in this organization with a World Cup on home soil coming up in 2026.

Below, the USMNT’s set of results for 2023 as well as a look at what’s ahead of the team.
