Update: Tyler Adams left the squad following the Ecuador game. Jesse Gonzalez will be available for FC Dallas for their MLS game before returning to camp.
Update: Zack Steffen is unavailable due to injury. Jesse Gonzalez added to the roster.
USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter named 24 players to his squad for the March 2019 international window. The USMNT plays Ecuador at Orlando City Stadium on March 21 (8pm ET - ESPN2) and Chile on March 26 at Houston's BBVA Compass Stadium (8pm ET - ESPN2).
"We had to make decisions for this camp and we looked at the players in a number of different buckets," Berhalter said. "For example, we have some younger guys that aren’t getting the game time that they would have expected and they’re still age-eligible for the Olympics, so we think it’s a great opportunity for them to play two international games with the U-23 team. We have other players that we have evaluated thoroughly in the January Camp and we’re going to bring back in the future, but not in this camp. That’s another group. Then we have some guys that are returning from injury and we thought now is not the right time to subject them to the intensity of international soccer and the National Team. Having to select a 23 or 24-man roster for a camp isn’t easy. All it does is reflect a slice of time."
