USMNT interim coach Dave Sarachan named 28 players to his squad for the November friendlies. The USMNT plays England at Wembley Stadium on November 15 (3pm ET - ESPN2) and Italy at Luminus Stadium in Genk, Belgium on Nov 20 (2:45pm ET - FS1).
“These are important matches and we only have so many opportunities every year to bring our players together," Sarachan said about including players from teams that could still be active in the MLS playoffs. "This is a FIFA window and we are one of many countries playing matches during this time, so you want to include players that you feel are vital to your program. There are other leagues around the world that have games right before and after these windows, but I feel when the National Team calls there is still an importance to bringing players that we feel will be significant to the team now and in the future.”
Update: Luca De La Torre, Weston McKennie, and Kenny Saief left the squad following the England game.
UPDATE: Antonee Robinson is out of the squad with a sprained ankle.
UPDATE: Zack Steffen and Darlington Nagbe are unavailable due to injuries. Jonathan Klinsmann is added to the roster.
