USMNT games: Gold Cup, Group A

The USMNT are part of Group A in the Gold Cup along with Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and St. Kitts and Nevis.

The USMNT are seeking a record-tying eighth confederation championship this summer, equaling Mexico if they reach that mark. They enter as defending champions (last won in 2021).

The 2023 Gold Cup Final will be held July 16 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Roster notes

The Gold Cup occurs shortly after the Nations League Finals, and Callaghan has kept five players on both squads: goalkeepers Sean Johnson and Matt Turner, defender Miles Robinson, midfielder Alan Soñora and forward Alex Zendejas. Johnson and Turner are also among the seven holdovers from the 2022 FIFA World Cup team.

After earning tournament Best XI honors in 2021, Turner and Robinson are among six returnees from that year’s championship side. They are joined by Johnson, Gianluca Busio, Cristian Roldan and James Sands.

Nine players will seek their first caps in an official competition: Cade Cowell, Julian Gressel, DeJuan Jones, Aidan Morris, Jalen Neal, Gaga Slonina, Soñora, John Tolkin and Brandon Vazquez.

Six dual national players will be cap-tied to the United States should they appear in any match during the Gold Cup: Cowell, Gressel, Morris, Slonina, Soñora and Vazquez.

With two selections each, FC Cincinnati and Seattle Sounders lead the list of 12 MLS clubs represented on the roster. FC Dallas forward Jesús Ferreira (10 goals) and Seattle forward Jordan Morris (nine goals) are firmly in the MLS Golden Boot presented by Audi race.
