USMNT’s new interim boss Callaghan names Nations League squad
New interim United States men’s national team coach B.J. Callaghan has named his 24-man roster for the CONCACAF Nations League final round in Las Vegas later this month.
Callaghan took the wheel for Anthony Hudson after the former Colorado Rapids coach stepped down late last month.
The USMNT will meet Mexico in a June 15 semifinal in a rematch of the memorable first CNL final, with the winner meeting the winner of Panama and Canada for a June 18 final.
There are some new names in the mix, including Champions League veteran goalkeeper Josh Cohen of Maccabi Haifa and Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun.
Eight players have four caps or less, and Christian Pulisic’s 58 caps are by far the most of the group.
Weston McKennie, Sergino Dest, Walker Zimmerman, Giovanni Reyna, Yunus Musah, and Brendan Aaronson are all listed, as is Timothy Weah.
Tim Ream of Fulham, Zack Steffen of Man City, and Tyler Adams of Leeds miss out through injury
Full roster after the jump.
