The US men's national team is on the road to face Switzerland this coming Sunday (2:15 pm ET | ESPN, UniMas, TUDN) in an international friendly that will feature a mix of American and European-based players. While stalwarts Christian Pulisic and Zach Steffen will be busy with the UEFA Champions League final the day before, standouts like Sergino Dest and Weston McKennie join a roster that also features six MLS players.

The teams have faced each other eight times prior, including a match in St. Gallen in 1990 as the U.S. team was on its kickoff tour prior to that year's World Cup in Italy. Perhaps most memorably, the Swiss were the U.S.'s first opponent in the American-hosted 1994 World Cup, with Eric Wynalda scoring in the 1-1 draw at Pontiac, Mich.'s Silverdome.

The U.S. is bringing six MLS players — goalkeeper David Ochoa (Real Salt Lake), defender Justin Che (FC Dallas), midfielder Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), midfielder Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), midfielder Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes) and forward Daryl Dike (Orlando City SC) — to St. Gallen. Of the six, Acosta and Lletget each have the most senior caps, while Ochoa will be at his first camp since Olympic qualifying in March, on the U-23 team captained by Yueill.

Julian Green, the last American to score in a World Cup, will be on this roster, making his first U.S. camp since November 2019. Other European-based players joining him, aside from the aforementioned McKennie and Adams, include Gio Reyna and Josh Sargent, both wrapped up with their Bundesliga seasons, Timothy Weah, part of the Ligue 1-winning squad at Lille; and Daryl Dike, whose bid to fire Barnsley into the Premier League as a Lions loanee came up short.

What to Know: Switzerland

Head coach Vladimir Petković has called up a 29-player prelim roster in advance of the contest.
