The roster contains most of the top players who are expected to feature at the Gold Cup with the exception of Tyler Adams and Christian Pulisic. Those two players are expected to be added to the Gold Cup roster. Club Brugge goalkeeper Ethan Horvath was not named to this team due to a finger injury.
Players who are on the initial 40 player provisional roster can be named to the Gold Cup.
One notable inclusion into the roster for the Jamaica game is Jackson Yueill. Yueill cannot be named to the Gold Cup team since he wasn’t part of the provisional roster but his inclusion is significant in that it shows that Yueill’s fine season is not going unnoticed. Yueill is also eligible for the U-23 team and should be a big part of that team.
Winger Tyler Boyd and attacking midfielder Duane Holmes both made the roster despite neither having represented the United States before at any age level. Boyd recently filed for a change of association switch to leave New Zealand’s program and represent the United States.
Forward Jozy Altidore is among 10 players on the roster who will be joining the squad for the first time under Berhalter.
