Gregg Berhalter calls up 24 men for USMNT's Copa America qualification deciders vs Trinidad and Tobago

Christian Pulisic's injury during AC Milan's UEFA Champions League game means he won't play in the upcoming USMNT matches against Trinidad and Tobago.

The USMNT needs victories against Trinidad and Tobago to secure automatic qualification for the 2024 Copa America, a crucial tournament taking place in the United States.

Gregg Berhalter emphasizes the team's clear goal of winning their third Nations League title and earning a chance to compete in the Copa America.

The USMNT will host Trinidad and Tobago on Nov. 16 at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas, and play the second leg at Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain on Nov. 20.

Pulisic, Timothy Weah, and DeJuan Jones won't be available for the November matches. Weah suffered a hamstring injury playing for Juventus.

Gaga Slonina, Antonee Robinson, Malik Tillman, and Paxten Aaronson are among the players returning to the squad.

The goalkeepers for the team include Matt Turner (Nottingham Forest), Ethan Horvath (Nottingham Forest), and Gaga Slonina (KAS Eupen).

Defenders in the squad consist of players like Cameron Carter-Vickers, Sergino Dest, Kristoffer Lund, Tim Ream, Chris Richards, Antonee Robinson, Miles Robinson, and Joe Scally.

The midfielders include Paxten Aaronson, Johnny Cardoso, Luca de la Torre, Lennard Maloney, Weston McKennie, Yunus Musah, Giovanni Reyna, and Malik Tillman.

Despite the challenges, the USMNT aims to end the year on a strong note and position themselves for success in the upcoming competitions.
