We already knew the USMNT will face England and Iran, and we now know that the Yanks will open their World Cup campaign against Wales, who knocked off Ukraine to book their spot in Qatar. But first, Gregg Berhalter and Co., will play a pair of friendlies against World Cup-qualified sides, as well as their first two games of the 2022-23 CONCACAF Nations League, this summer.

Two more friendlies during the September international window, the only window during the first half of the (condensed) 2022-23 European club season, will likely be announced later this summer.

Players will be released by their clubs no later than Nov. 14, with the tournament set to kick off one week later, on Nov. 21, and the USMNT closing out the first day of action with their opening game.

As for now, here is the USMNT’s upcoming schedule for the remainder of 2022 and early 2023…
