Dave Sarachan — yes, he’s still the interim coach — is without the foundational trio of Christian Pulisic, Tyler Adams and Weston McKennie after all three were forced out of the penultimate camp of 2018 due to injuries.

In their starting places are Julian Green, Kellyn Acosta and (captain) Michael Bradley, who returns after having not played for the USMNT since last October, the night they failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
