Berhalter Names 23-Player Roster for 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup
CHICAGO (July 1, 2021) – In advance of the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter has selected the final 23-player roster, presented by BioSteel. With a mix of veterans and promising young talent, the United States will pursue its seventh confederation championship title.
“Our priority is to win the Gold Cup. Anytime we’re competing for a trophy, we want to win it,” Berhalter said. “It’s going to take a good effort by the group, but it’s certainly a focus of ours. We know the games are going to be difficult, and as we looked at the roster for this tournament, we focused on guys who are in form and can help the team win.”
The USMNT is part of Group B in the Gold Cup along with Canada, Martinique and a team that will be determined through the 2021 Gold Cup Prelims. The USA will play all of its group matches at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City.
Based on the outcome of the Gold Cup Prelims Round, the remaining team in Group B could be one of four possibilities: Barbados, Bermuda, Haiti or St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The Prelims Round will run from July 2-6 at in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.
The United States has lifted the Concacaf Gold Cup six times, most recently in the 2017 edition. The USMNT won the inaugural tournament in 1991 before being crowned regional champions again in 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2013.
Per tournament rules, the final roster will be submitted prior to midnight tonight. A player may be replaced on the roster up to 24 hours prior a team’s first match of the group phase in the case of injury. The replacement player must come from the 60-man preliminary roster.
USMNT GOLD CUP ROSTER BY POSITION (Club; Caps/Goals):
GOALKEEPERS (3): Brad Guzan (Atlanta United; 64/0), Sean Johnson (New York City FC; 9/0), Matt Turner (New England Revolution; 1/0)
DEFENDERS (8): George Bello (Atlanta United; 1/0), Reggie Cannon (Boavista/POR; 18/1), Shaq Moore (Tenerife/ESP; 5/0), Donovan Pines (D. C. United; 0/0), Miles Robinson (Atlanta United; 3/1), James Sands (New York City FC; 0/0), Sam Vines (Colorado Rapids; 3/0), Walker Zimmerman (Nashville SC; 14/2)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids; 31/2), Gianluca Busio (Sporting Kansas City; 0/0), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy; 24/7), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders; 20/0), Eryk Williamson (Portland Timbers; 0/0), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes; 12/0)
FORWARDS: (6): Paul Arriola (D.C. United; 35/8), Daryl Dike (Orlando City; 3/1), Nicholas Gioacchini (Caen/FRA; 3/2), Matthew Hoppe (Schalke/GER; 0/0), Jonathan Lewis (Colorado Rapids; 7/2), Gyasi Zardes (Columbus Crew; 56/12)
Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Weston McKennie headline USMNT 26-man roster for World Cup qualifiers
Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic, Borussia Dortmund’s Giovanni Reyna and Juventus’ Weston McKennie headline the 26-player roster for the U.S. men’s national team ahead of three World Cup qualifiers.
Pulisic had been considered doubtful to be called up after contracting COVID-19 but has recovered sufficiently to be on the roster that will contest World Cup qualifiers at El Salvador on Sept. 2, at home against Canada in Nashville three days later and away to Honduras on Sept. 8.

“It’s going to be just day-to-day, seeing where he’s at,” U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter said about Pulisic’s status. “He’s still under quarantine conditions in England, and we’re going to have to get him stateside once he clears the quarantine and assess him. It’s really [difficult] to tell if he will be available for the 2nd, for the 5th or for the 8th.
“There’s a lot of tests that he needs to go through before he arrives.”
Although game-day rosters remain at 23 players, the fact that the window contains three games compelled Berhalter to bring in additional reinforcements. Players will begin reporting to camp in Nashville starting on Sunday.
In terms of World Cup qualifying, the group lacks experience, with just six of those called having previously played in a qualifier. But the current crop of players has been excelling at club level.
Ten players are on clubs that have qualified for the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League group stage: Brenden Aaronson (FC Salzburg), Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), John Brooks (VfL Wolfsburg), Sergiño Dest (Barcelona), McKennie (Juventus), Jordan Pefok (BSC Young Boys), Pulisic (Chelsea), Reyna (Borussia Dortmund), Zack Steffen (Manchester City), Timothy Weah (Lille).
“I talk about the progress we’ve made as a team, a lot of it has to do with the individuals, as well, and the level that they’ve been playing at,” Berhalter said.
One notable call-up is FC Dallas forward Ricardo Pepi. A dual national who can still represent Mexico, Pepi’s emergence this season — he has scored nine goals for Dallas — gives the U. S. team additional depth in a position that Berhalter has found difficulty filling. Pepi scored the game-winning penalty kick in Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game.
“I want to start by saying that I am a Mexican-American and that I am super proud of my heritage,” Pepi told FCDallas.com. “It’s something that will never be taken away from me, no matter what national team I play for. I made this decision because I felt the USA trusts me and I think that’s due to [USMNT head coach] Gregg Berhalter and how he emphasized this to me.
“I had good talks with Gregg and I feel I can make an impact with the [USMNT] and help this national team really do something special now and in the future.”
There was little in the way of surprises, although injuries to the likes of Columbus Crew forward Gyasi Zardes, Orlando City forward Daryl Dike and Valencia midfielder Yunus Musah limited Berhalter’s options to a degree. But the U.S. team’s success in winning the 2021 Gold Cup while fielding a young and inexperienced lineup is already bearing fruit. Twenty-four players on the roster played in the Gold Cup or in CONCACAF Nations League, which the U.S. also won.
“It’s nice to win a trophy in Nations League. It’s nice to win a Gold Cup trophy. It’s nice to be ranked 10th in the world,” Berhalter said. “It doesn’t mean anything if we don’t qualify for the World Cup. … Everything we’ve done until now is only a foundation.”
Unlike previous cycles in which six teams contested the final round of qualifying, eight teams will take part this time. The teams will play a round-robin, home-and-away format that comprises 14 matches each.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a process that normally takes place over 18 months has been reduced to seven.
Additionally, the condensed schedule includes four dates consisting of three matches during a seven-day window. The other teams to reached the final round are Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Jamaica, Panama and Mexico.
Detailed Roster by Position (Club/Country; Caps/Goals):

23-MAN ROSTER: Canada names team for WCQ
The Canadian men’s national team announced its roster for the first three World Cup qualifying matches in September on Thursday.
Canada will play two matches at BMO Field in Toronto – Honduras on Sept. 2 and El Salvador on Seept. 8. The team will visit the USA in Nashville, Tenn. Sept. 5.
“These men know they have a great opportunity to play in front of our fans for the first time in nearly two years, but more importantly the chance to get our campaign off to a great start in the next round of FIFA World Cup qualifiers,” head coach John Herdman said. “There’s been a lot of competition for places in this selection, so assembling this squad posed some nice problems for a coach.
“The fans will make the difference and they always do. BMO Field in Toronto has been our fortress and with the fans support, we intend to keep it that way.”
Canada’s squad will feature three recent Canadian players of the year: six-time winner Atiba Hutchinson, two-time winner Alphonso Davies, and one-time winner Jonathan David. Veteran Hutchinson is taking part in his fifth cycle of World Cup Qualifiers while Davies and David are taking part in their first cycle of FIFA qualifiers.
Davies and David are the two youngest players on the team at 20 and 21, respectively. Davies of Bayern Munich is a Bundesliga and UEFA Champions League winner while David of Lille OSC in France in a Ligue 1 winner. Davies and David are two of five Canadians aged 23 or younger in the squad alongside Tajon Buchanan of New England Revolution, Alistair Johnston of Nashville SC, and Liam Fraser of Columbus SC. Buchanan, the 2020 Canadian youth international player of the year and 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup young player award winner, will join Club Brugge in January after a club-record transfer from his MLS club to Belgium.
Hutchinson, who has started his ninth season at Beşiktaş JK in Turkey, ranks second in Canada’s record books with 85 career MMNT international “A” appearances, five behind all-time leader Julian de Guzman. Midfielder Hutchinson is one of five players with 40 or more appearances in the September squad alongside Samuel Piette of CF Montréal (57), goalkeeper Milan Borjan of Red Star Belgrade (53), Jonathan Osorio of Toronto FC (42), and Beşiktaş teammate Cyle Larin (40).
Other key experienced players presently with European clubs are Junior Hoilett of Reading FC in England, Steven Vitória of Moreirense FC in Portugal, and David Wotherspoon of St. Johnstone FC in Scotland. Younger stars in Europe and Asia are Samuel Adekugbe of Hatayspor FC in Turkey, Stephen Eustáquio of FC Paços de Ferreira in Portugal, Doneil Henry of Suwon Samsung Bluewings in Korea Republic, and Scott Kennedy of SSV Jahn Regensburg in Germany.
Joining Buchanan, Fraser, Johnston, Osorio and Piette from Major League Soccer clubs are Lucas Cavallini and Maxime Crépeau from Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Mark-Anthony Kaye from Colorado Rapids, Richie Laryea from Toronto FC, and Kamal Miller and James Pantemis from CF Montréal.

U.S. national soccer team names 24-man roster ahead of upcoming friendlies
Midfielders Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Tyler Adams are among nine foreign-based players who will join the U.S. national team for the first time under new coach Gregg Berhalter next week in Orlando, Fla., ahead of friendlies with Ecuador and Chile.
Also named to the 24-man team were Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget, LAFC forward Christian Ramirez and former Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez. Lletget and Ramirez both were called into the January camp by Berhalter and scored goals, Ramirez in a win over Panama and Lletget in a victory against Costa Rica. Gonzalez hasn’t played for the U.S. since the failed World Cup qualifying campaign in 2017.
“This camp represents Step 2 in our evaluation process,” Berhalter said. “Our goal is to keep this group moving forward as we continue to build on our style of player and building a team culture.”
Others returning from the January camp include midfielder Michael Bradley, whose 143 caps with the national team are more than double the international appearances of the other six midfielders combined, and goalkeeper Zach Steffen. Bradley, Gonzalez and defender Tim Ream are the other players older than 30 on the roster.
Forward Jordan Morris, who scored two goals for the Seattle Sounders earlier this month in his first competitive game since ACL surgery last February, will join the national team for the first time in 14 months.
Among the notable exclusions were forwards Bobby Wood and Josh Sargent, and midfielder Tim Weah. All played at least six times for the U.S. last year but are not starting regularly for their clubs in Europe this season.
Sargent and Weah are expected to be called into training this month with the U-23 national team.

“When we looked at players that were U-23 eligible and weren’t necessarily going to be in our starting group, we had to weigh it as more beneficial for them to try to play full international games at a level where they can gain confidence and potentially bring that back to their club and then get a boost of confidence with their club,” Berhalter said.
Berhalter said he intends to play Pulisic, one of three 20-year-old midfielders on the roster, in a play-making role.
“We want to find a spot where he can affect the game, where he can get more out of his teammates and also put him in a position to score goals and make assists,” the coach said.
The March camp and the two friendlies will be Berhalter’s last opportunity to work with the team before having to choose a roster for June’s Gold Cup, his first competitive event as coach of the national team as the U.S. begins to build for the 2022 World Cup.
“It’s really too early to tell what the actual Gold Cup roster will be like,” Berhalter said. “This is a great opportunity for us to see some other new faces and evaluate them in our system of play.”
Goalkeepers: Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge), Sean Johnson (New York City
FC), Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew)
Defenders: John Brooks (Wolfsburg), Omar Gonzalez (Atlas), Nick Lima (San Jose Earthquakes), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Daniel Lovitz
(Montreal Impact), Matt Miazga (Reading), Tim Ream (Fulham),
DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United)
Midfielders: Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Sebastian Lletget (Galaxy), Weston McKennie (Schalke), Christian
Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders), Wil Trapp
Forwards: Paul Arriola (D.C. United), Corey Baird (Real Salt Lake), Jonathan
Lewis (New York City FC), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders), Christian Ramirez (LAFC), Gyasi Zardes (Columbus Crew)

Here’s Team USA men’s basketball roster for the Tokyo Olympics
There were huge doubts about what Team USA men’s basketball would look like at the Tokyo Olympics with a grueling, shortened season wrecking havoc on player bodies, causing numerous stars to pull out of the Summer games. However, now the full roster has been revealed, the final product is much better than most anticipated.
The Tokyo Olympics will have their opening ceremony on Friday, July 23. Men’s basketball runs from July 25 until the gold medal game on August 7. The United States has taken home three consecutive gold medals in the event following their stunning bronze at the 2004 games in Athens, where they lost to Manu Ginobili and Argentina who went on to win gold.
Here’s the full 12-man roster for Team USA:
Team USA’s 12-man roster for the Tokyo Olympics:
— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 23, 2021
A healthy mix of established stars and veteran leadership, the 2021 Team USA roster may be missing the likes of Stephen Curry and LeBron James, but it’s still formidable, with some of the best and most-recognized players in the world.
- Kevin Durant: One of the best players of his generation, Durant offers 7-foot length with the ability to score from anywhere on the floor. Also a solid rim defender who will help on the other end of the court. Durant helped USA Basketball win gold medals in 2012 and 2016.
- Damian Lillard: Arguably Team USA’s best guard, Lillard can create his own shot and blow past defenders with his ludicrous speed. Also one of the best superstars in the league at shooting threes, offers a perimeter threat.
- Bradley Beal: Stepping out of being “very good” and into “superstar” territory, the often overlooked Beal is a dynamite shot creator who managed to excel in 2020-21, even with the ball-hungry Russell Westbrook on his team. Should have no problem slotting in with the other stars on Team USA and find a niche.
- Kevin Love: The “old man” of Team USA, the 32-year-old has more or less been forgotten since the Cavaliers’ super team demolished. Still, he’s a double-double forward with the ability to stretch the floor from range, which should match up nicely against some rangy, shooting Euro bigs. Love was part of the 2012 gold medal-winning team in London.
- Jayson Tatum: Still just 23 years old, Tatum continues to look like one of the brightest young talents in the game during the start of his career with the Boston Celtics. A 6’8 wing with scoring ability from all over the floor, Tatum had a 60-point performance during the regular season and dropped 50 points in a win over the Brooklyn Nets in the playoffs. He can play all over the floor and provide scoring and versatile defense.
- Devin Booker: Booker is the ascendant star leading the Suns deep into the Western Conference playoffs. The 24-year-old is a dynamic scorer with a deadly pull-up mid-range game and the ability to space the floor out past the three-point arc. Booker may only have days to prepare for the Olympics if he leads Phoenix to the NBA Finals.
- Zach LaVine: LaVine made his first All-Star appearance of his career this season with the Chicago Bulls, and is yet another dynamic shooter and scorer. LaVine is a deadly three-point shooter who can also put pressure on the rim with his elite athleticism.
- Bam Adebayo: While Adebayo is a little undersized for a center at 6’9, he is a tremendous rebounder and shot blocking threat, and has a diverse offensive skill set. Adebayo can fit in equally well with a faster small ball lineup, or play a more traditional role in the paint, offering something nobody else on the roster really can.
- Draymond Green: Green’s reputation precedes him. Not only a tenacious low post rebounder, Green brings a little nastiness that Team USA needs. His role will be to infuriate opposing bigs, likely being used in a rotational role to disrupt scorers off the bench.
- Jrue Holiday: The closest thing to a true point guard on the roster, Holiday is another hybrid guard often used in the 1 or 2 in Milwaukee. A three-time All-Defensive team player, he has the chops to lock down opposing guards and isn’t afraid to mix it up and get dirty loose rebounds. A high-effort player who will be welcome on both ends of the floor.
- Khris Middleton: Middleton is a 29-year-old wing and two-time All-Star who has quietly become one of the best shooters of his generation. While he’s known as Giannis Antetokounmpo’s sidekick on the Milwaukee Bucks, Middleton is a dynamic 6’8 scorer in his own right who will give Team USA additional shot-making and lineup versatility.
- Jerami Grant: A bouncy 6’8 forward, Grant took a big offensive leap in his first season with Detroit this past year. He’ll provide extra paint protection on defense and a little scoring punch off the bench for Team USA.
US Men’s National Soccer Team 2016 Copa America Roster Announced | Bleacher Report
Joel Auerbach/Getty Images
United States men’s national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann announced his 23-man roster Saturday for the 2016 Copa America tournament, per Jeff Carlisle of ESPN.
Here’s the full roster:
|2016 Copa America USMNT Roster|
|Goalkeeper||Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Colorado Rapids), Ethan Horvath (Molde IK)|
|Defenders||Matt Besler (Sporting KC), Steve Birnbaum (D. C. United), John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt), Fabian Johnson (Borussia Moenchengladbach), Michael Orozco (Club Tijuana), DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham Hotspur)|
|Midfielders||Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (FC Nantes), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Jermaine Jones (Colorado Rapids), Perry Kitchen (Heart of Midlothian), Darlington Nagbe (Portland Timbers), Christian Pulisic, Graham Zusi (Sporting KC)|
|Forwards||Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), Bobby Wood (Hamburg SV), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)|
Veteran stars Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey and Fabian Johnson headline the list.
Klinsmann spoke about his choices, per Steven Goff of the Washington Post:
We look over the last two years who progressed coming through that was not in Brazil, and we also know who are going to be the future faces of the men’s national team going forward. But as of today, this is the strongest group of players we believe we can have, and we still give all the compliments and respect to the players that are left out.
The most notable absence is young star and forward Jordan Morris, who was left off in favor of veteran striker Chris Wondolowski, Klinsmann said in an interview with Fox Sports (via Andy Edwards of NBC Sports). He also revealed that Brad Guzan would be the team’s starting goalkeeper.
With Jozy Altidore missing the tournament to injury, Klinsmann’s selections at forward will be the most scrutinized, with no like-for-like replacement on the roster for the country’s normal starter at the position, as Ryan Rosenblatt of Fox Sports noted:
Notably, none of the four are especially strong back-to-goal players capable of serving as a target man like Altidore is. Klinsmann has essentially chosen not to replace Altidore and presumably will have the Americans play differently in the attack, taking advantage of the strengths that his forwards do have instead of trying to force one of them into Altidore’s more physical role.
If the forwards struggle in this tournament, the decision to pass on Morris will be another strike against Klinsmann for his growing list of detractors.
In the midfield, Bradley, Jermaine Jones, Kyle Beckerman, Alejandro Bedoya and Graham Zusi are all mainstays. The players to watch, though, are Christian Pulisic and Darlington Nagbe. Pulisic, just 17, worked his way into Borussia Dortmund’s first team this season and scored two goals in nine Bundesliga appearances (four starts).
Defensively, Johnson, Matt Besler, John Brooks, Geoff Cameron, DeAndre Yedlin and Timmy Chandler give the United States a solid pool of options in front of Guzan.
The USMNT will be in Group A with Colombia, Costa Rica and Paraguay, kicking off the tournament on June 3 against the Colombians. The squad will have friendlies against Ecuador on May 25 and Bolivia on May 28 in preparation for the tournament.

World Cup 2014: Team USA roster
Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
Club: Seattle Sounders FC
“Captain America” will need to display some
of the incredible creativity and playmaking he has so far this season for the
Seattle Sounders. He’s likely to be positioned just behind the front line and given the green light to do whatever possible to engineer goals for himself and others. When the native Texan left the English Premier League for more money and
a team a little closer to home last year, many fretted the lesser
competition would doom the U.S. team by making him a weaker player. Dempsey will
have a huge opportunity to prove them wrong, and bolster the MLS’ image at the

Club: Toronto FC
Practically bred to play soccer (his dad,
Bob, was the U.S. men’s coach from 2006-2011), Bradley is arguably one of the
most talented U.S. men’s players of all time. The New Jersey native had a stint on Roma in Italy’s Serie A before moving to MLS’
Toronto FC earlier this year. Famously intense, the U.S. will be utterly
dependent on his high energy, fearlessness and hard running against the stiff competition it
Mark Runnacles/Getty Images
No American player is more of an enigma than
this New Jersey native with Haitian lineage. He had a good run with AZ
Alkmaar of the top Dutch league before having an abysmal season with Sunderland
in the English Premier League this past year. There is no doubt he will be the
main man up front for the U.S., though. The good news is the big-bodied striker usually
brings his “A” game to the international stage. Coach Klinsmann will require it, and there’ll be a deep enough bench to yank him if need be.
Scott Heavey/Getty Images
It will likely be reassuring to U.S. fans to have
the incredibly intense Howard barking orders at his defense from the net again
this World Cup. Even with the caliber of attackers coming at the New Jersey
native in the opening round, fans can reasonably hope the 100th clean sheet he
recorded in the English Premier League as Everton’s keeper this spring was a
sign he is still at the top of his game and one of the best keepers in the world right
Jeff J Mitchell/Getty Images
The Indiana-born veteran can play almost any
position on the left side of the pitch, but Klinsmann is likely to use
him at left back. It’s still not guaranteed he’ll start, but his versatility and
vast international experience for both the national team and at the professional
level – he was the first-ever American to play in a Champion’s League semifinal
– are certain to lead to some playing time in Brazil.
Scott Heavey/Getty Images
Club: Stoke City
The big defender and self-described “proud
Bostonian” is headed to Brazil because of the fine form he showed
for Stoke City in the English Premier League last year. He can play both center
back and right back, but the latter seems his more likely landing spot if he
makes the starting 11.
Christian Petersen/Getty Images
Club: San Jose Earthquakes
“Wondo” has an unusual ability to put
himself in scoring positions, and with the U.S. men’s team’s infamous history of
struggling to create goal opportunities, that is likely the reason this
California-native made the 23-man squad. He has struggled a bit against better
opponents however, so he will need to prove himself in camp to get playing time in Brazil.
Gene Sweeney Jr/Getty Images
Club: Real Salt Lake
Despite his unusual hair style, Beckerman
is actually a very conservative midfielder, content with controlling possession
and staying back while his teammates make runs on goal. He’s not a lock to
start but is headed to Brazil because of his steadiness;
the Maryland native won’t break open a game and overwhelm opponents but he can
keep the ball away from just about anyone.
Andy Lyons/Getty Images
Club: FC Nürnberg
Born in Germany to a U.S. military dad and a
German mother, this fast and strong defender can play both right and center
back. He nearly had his U.S. team hopes dashed by a disastrous showing against
Honduras last year and knee surgery, but Klinsmann is high on him after a
strong season in the Bundesliga. If any American can run with the Cristiano
Ronaldos of the world, it’s Chandler, which is why he could crack the starting 11 if healthy.
Scott Heavey/Getty Images
Club: Aston Villa
The Americans probably couldn’t be happier to
have the steady Illinois native as their first-choice backup in goal. He’s
played well in the English Premier League for Aston Villa since 2008, who awarded
him with a four-year contract extension last year.
Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images
Club: Real Salt Lake
Last year, the California native earned his 100th career
shutout in the MLS, only the second goalkeeper to do so. Each World Cup team is
required to bring three keepers to the tournament, and Klinsmann only
named three to his 30-man roster, so the player many call MLS’ best goalkeeper of the last decade will be on the plane to Brazil.
Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
Club: Borussia Mönchengladbach
Another son of an American serviceman and a
German mother, Klinsmann lured the fleet-footed defender from the German
national team’s development roster in 2011. Klinsmann has since used Johnson
in a variety of positions between the midfield and the back line, and he can
play inside and out. He’s good enough to crack the starting 11 with a good showing in camp. The only question is where, because his vision
and excellent weak foot abilities can place him anywhere on the field.
Alexander Klein/AFP/Getty Images
Another one of the Americans born to a U.S.
military dad and a German mom, Jones switched allegiances in 2009 after playing
briefly for one of the German youth teams. He can mentally get knocked off his
game, but Jones is an outstanding, tough, rangy midfielder and a favorite of
Klinsmann’s who is almost certain to start alongside Michael Bradley in
the middle of the pitch.
Christian Hofer/Getty Images
Club: Rosenborg BK
The Norwegian-born son of an Arizona woman, “Mix”
declared his loyalty to the U.S. national team in 2010. His creative play and
strong season with Norwegian powerhouse Rosenburg put him in the final grouping of 23. The major knock against him is his play can be
Dean Mouhtaropoulos/Getty Images
The striker may have been born in Alabama,
but his parents are from Iceland, which is where he grew up. He has shown a
knack for finishing and handling the ball in tight spaces. He succeeded Jozy
Altidore at AZ Alkmaar as the top striker and has given that club every bit of goal
production that Altidore once did.
Jean-Sebastien Evrard/AFP/Getty Images
Since moving to France’s top professional
league last year, the New Jersey native’s stock as a member of the U.S. team
has gone up. He’s unlikely to crack the starting 11, but the shifty midfielder could
provide an important boost of energy and attacking creativity off the bench in
Victor Decolongon/Getty Images
Club: Sporting Kansas City
The Kansas native and MLS All-Star is a near-lock
to start at center back. He is smart and steady
with the ball at his feet, and will provide important continuity for the U.S.
team as he’s been Klinsmann preferred option in his position for a while now.
Victor Decolongon/Getty Images
Club: Sporting Kansas City
The Florida native is not the fastest midfielder on
the squad, but he does serve up some excellent passes and free kicks, as was
put on display during qualifying. Even with Landon Donovan off the final 23-man squad, he’s unlikely
to see a lot, if any, playing time, but could provide Coach Klinsmann an
excellent emergency option on the bench if needed.
Frederic J. Brown/AFP/Getty Images
Club: Los Angeles Galaxy
The only thing that would keep this native Texan
from starting on defense is injury, which he has struggled with recently. He is
a big, tough player with great aerial ability that has earned the coach’s confidence. Some had questioned his decision to not head to Europe to prove himself when professional clubs there came calling a few years ago, but he could show his doubters how wrong they were in Brazil.

Still another son of an American serviceman
and a German mother, Klinsmann lured him to permanently join the U.S. squad last
year. He’s big – 6’5″ – and doing well in the Bundesliga and will likely be a big
part of the American team’s future, but his lack of experience might cost him playing time in Brazil.

While his unmistakable hairstyle might draw
eyes, the Washington native’s speed on the flanks has drawn the U.S. coaches’
attention. He’s got a lot of upside, but his youth may work against him when it comes to playing time. The defender will likely have to put on the best
performance of his life to make it onto the field in Brazil.

About Green: The teenage product of still another American
serviceman and German mother, Green was arguably the most controversial inclusion on
Klinsmann’s 23-man roster. The winger/forward had a choice between
playing for Germany — who allegedly wanted him — or the U.S., and rumor has it he was offered a trip to Brazil if he signed with the U.S. now. It could turn
out to be an excellent gamble for the U.S., however, as his Bayern Munich
teammates, some of the world’s best players, have nothing but the highest
praise for Green’s potential, skills and motor.

It’s been three years since Davis was a
finalist for the MLS MVP award, but the Missouri native has shown consistent-enough
midfield play from the wing to earn a spot on the plane to Brazil.
He’s got a strong shot and is a decisive passer, but will have his work cut out
for him to stand out from a crowded midfield in camp.
90,000 American Civil War (1861-1865). Help
The hostilities began on April 12, 1861 with a southern attack on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, which was forced to surrender after 34 hours of shelling. In response, Lincoln declared the southern states rebellious, declared a naval blockade of their coastline, drafted volunteers into the army, and later introduced military service.
The main goal of the northerners in the war was proclaimed the preservation of the Union and the integrity of the country, the southerners – the recognition of the independence and sovereignty of the Confederation.The strategic plans of the sides were similar: an attack on the enemy’s capital and the dismemberment of its territory.
The main forces were fighting in the direction of Washington-Richmond.
The first major battle took place in Virginia at the Manassas railway station on July 21, 1861. 33 thousand soldiers of the Northerner General Irwin McDowell were opposed by 32 thousand Confederates led by Pierre Beauregard and Joseph Johnston. The troops of the northerners, crossing the Bull Run, attacked the southerners, but were forced to begin a retreat that turned into a flight.
The defeat at Manassas forced the Lincoln government to take vigorous measures to deploy and strengthen units and formations, mobilize the economic resources of the North, and build defensive structures. A new strategic plan (“Anaconda Plan”) was developed, which provided for the creation of a ring around the southern states by the forces of the army and navy, which was supposed to be gradually compressed until the final suppression of the rebels.
McDowell was replaced by General George McClellan, former commander of the West Virginia Army.
In April 1862, a 100,000-strong northerner army under the command of General McClellan again attempted to capture Richmond, but on the outskirts of the capital of the southern states encountered a well-prepared system of engineering fortifications. In the battle of June 26 – July 2 on the Chickahominy River (east of Richmond) with an army of 80,000 southerners, the northerners were defeated and retreated to Washington.
In September 1862, the commander-in-chief of the rebel army, General Lee, attempted to capture Washington, but was unable to achieve victory and was forced to withdraw.An attempt by the northerners to launch a new offensive against Richmond was also unsuccessful.
In the west and south, in the Mississippi Valley, hostilities were private. The troops of the Northmen under the command of General Ulysses Grant occupied Memphis, Corinth and New Orleans.
Influenced by the setbacks at the front, the threat to Washington and the demands of the population of the northern states, Congress in 1862 implemented a number of measures in order to change the methods of warfare. At the same time, a law was passed to confiscate the property of the rebels.
Of particular importance were the Homesteads (Land Plots) Act, passed on May 20, 1862, which gave a US citizen who did not fight on the South side the right to receive a piece of land, as well as the Lincoln Proclamation of September 22, 1862 on the release from January 1, 1863 Mr. Negro slaves in the rebellious states (in the northern states, slavery was prohibited by law). The negroes were freed without ransom, but also without land. They could serve in the army and navy.
The second stage of the war (1863-1865) was characterized by important changes in the political life of the country, in the strategy and tactics of the federal army.
On March 3, 1863, for the first time in the history of the United States, conscription was introduced. In the northern states, the army was replenished with new formations, about 190 thousand blacks entered it (72% of them came from the southern states), 250 thousand blacks served in the rear units.
The beginning of May 1863 was marked by the Battle of Chancelorville, during which the 130,000th army of the northerners was defeated by the 60,000th army of General Lee. The losses of the sides were 17,275 for the northerners, and 12,821 for the southerners in killed and wounded.The northerners retreated again, and Lee, bypassing Washington from the north, entered Pennsylvania. In this situation, the outcome of the three-day battle for Gettysburg in early July became of great importance. As a result of bloody battles, Lee’s troops were forced to retreat to Virginia, to clear the territory of the Union.
In the western theater, Grant’s army, after several days of siege and two unsuccessful assaults, captured Vicksburg fortress on July 4, 1863. On July 8, General Nathaniel Banks’ soldiers took Port Hudson, Louisiana. Thus, control was established over the Mississippi River Valley, and the Confederation was divided into two parts.The year ended with a convincing victory at Chattanooga, the gateway to the East.
In the early spring of 1864, under the general leadership of Ulysses Grant, who was appointed commander-in-chief of the northerners in March, a new strategic plan was developed, providing for the delivery of three main attacks: the 122,000-strong Potomac army of Mead, advancing from north to south, was to defeat the main forces of the army Lee and take possession of Richmond; The 100,000-strong army of General William Sherman had the task of advancing from west to east, bypassing the Allegheny Mountains from the south, capturing the main economic regions of the southerners in Georgia, reaching the Atlantic Ocean and then striking the main forces of General Joseph Johnston’s army from the south; Butler’s 36,000-strong army was to attack Richmond from the east.
The federal offensive began in early May 1864. General Sherman’s “march to the sea” from Chattanooga (Tennessee) through Atlanta was of great importance. Overcoming the resistance of the southerners, Sherman’s troops occupied Atlanta on September 2, captured the city of Savannah on December 21, and reached the Atlantic coast. Then Sherman led his troops north, occupied the city of Columbia (February 18, 1865) and went into the rear of the main forces of Lee’s army, whose position became hopeless.
In the spring of 1865, Grant’s federal forces resumed their offensive and occupied Richmond on April 3. The troops of the southerners withdrew, but were overtaken by Grant and surrounded. On April 9, Lee’s army surrendered at the city of Appomattox. The rest of the Confederate troops ceased resistance by June 2, 1865. Soon after the victory, on April 14, 1865, President Lincoln was fatally wounded by a Confederate agent and died the next day.
Results of the war
The Civil War remained the bloodiest in the history of the United States.The losses of the northerners amounted to almost 360 thousand people killed and died from wounds and more than 275 thousand wounded. The Confederates lost 258,000 killed and about 100,000 wounded. The US government’s military spending alone reached $ 3 billion.
In the United States, during the Civil War, for the first time in American history, a massive regular army of the modern type was created. The experience and military traditions acquired in 1861-865 were used during the formation of the American army half a century later, during the First World War.
As a result of the Civil War, at the cost of great losses, the unity of the United States was preserved and slavery was abolished. The prohibition of slavery was enshrined in the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, which entered into force on December 18, 1865.
Conditions have been created in the country for the accelerated development of industrial and agricultural production, the development of western lands, and the strengthening of the domestic market.

The war did not solve all the problems facing the country. Some of them were resolved during the Reconstruction of the South, which lasted until 1877. Others, including granting people of color equal rights with whites, remained unresolved for many decades.

Erdogan threatened to expel the US ambassador as part of a group of diplomats from 10 countries
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he could expel the ambassadors of Canada, France, Finland, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and the United States from the country after they signed a letter demanding the release of human rights defender Osman Kavala.
“Why are these ten ambassadors making such statements? I told our Foreign Ministry that we cannot afford to receive them in our country. Who are you to teach Turkey? Leave the topic with Kavala. Do you leave murderers, terrorists and bandits in your countries? Do America, Germany and other countries do this? They always answer that the court is independent. It turns out that your court is independent, and ours is dependent? Our court sets a better example of independence! ” – the website of the TV channel Haberturk quotes the words of the Turkish leader.
Erdogan also spoke in more detail about the situation with Kavala and another detained citizen Selahatin Demirtash.
“The cases of Kavala and Demirtas are already hotbeds of terrorism and they are obvious. Kavala has a difference from other similar situations because it is sponsored by the Soros Foundation. They try to stir up excitement in the places where they bring their money, so they need to be watched very closely. They are trying to infiltrate the Balkans to intimidate them. They do it in Kosovo, Albania, North Macedonia and other countries.Therefore, we must not let them into Turkey, ”he continued.
Osman Kavala is one of the most famous Turkish human rights defenders and the founder of the cultural foundation Anadolu Kültür AŞ, which supports projects of national minorities and advocates for the reconciliation of Turks with Kurds and Armenians. Last winter, he was acquitted of the riots in Istanbul’s Gezi Park, near Taksim Square, in 2013. However, immediately the Turkish prosecutor’s office issued a new arrest warrant for Kavala due to charges of participating in a coup attempt that took place in the summer of 2016.
In turn, Selahattin Demirtash is accused of terrorism. The total term of imprisonment, which may face the former member of the Turkish parliament, is more than 140 years.
In December 2020, the European Court of Human Rights ruled in favor of Demirtas and demanded the immediate release of the politician from Ankara.
Commenting on the ECtHR decision, President Erdogan called this verdict politically motivated. “To demand the release of the one who is responsible for the deaths of 39 of our fellow citizens is a manifestation of double standards and hypocrisy,” Erdogan said.
By killed citizens, he means those killed in the riots that broke out in the southeast of the country in 2014. Then representatives of the Kurdish community held protests against the refusal of the Turkish government to launch a military operation to prevent the surrender of the city of Kobani in northern Syria to supporters of the banned IS movement (the organization is banned in Russia).
The protests resulted in violent clashes between Kurds and Islamist nationalists. The Turkish government blamed the People’s Democratic Party, which was headed by Demirtas at the time.
The politician himself commented on the decision of the European Court in Twitter account , which is maintained by his lawyers.
“I was not happy with the verdict, since I am not the only one who pays the price for the destruction of rights and democracy. Our 83 million citizens pay an even higher price, ”the publication says.
