USA vs. Grenada preview
The Americans' 24-player roster includes 12 players who were part of the 2022 World Cup squad. The most intriguing inclusion arguably is 20-year-old Borussia Dortmund winger Giovanni Reyna. He has been at the center of a U.S. Soccer drama that famously began with his lack of playing time in Qatar and led to an investigation looking into domestic abuse allegations involving former manager Gregg Berhalter dating to his college days at North Carolina. Assistant coach Anthony Hudson is serving as interim manager for the USMNT while the team remains without a permanent manager.
The roster also includes Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic. Since scoring the game-winning goal in the Americans' 1-0 victory over Iran that got them into the knockout stage of the World Cup, the 24-year-old has seen action in just six matches for Chelsea while dealing with a knee injury. Despite his lack of playing time with his club team, he remains the USMNT's key figure.
One American who will not play against Grenada – or against El Salvador on Monday – is Tyler Adams. A world class defensive midfielder who served as the team's captain during the World Cup, Adams strained a hamstring on March 11. His absence leaves a significant hole at a position where the Americans lack depth.
Team USA faces a Grenada side with a light résumé. The Spice Boys are 173rd in the FIFA Men's World Rankings and have two wins, four draws and one loss in seven matches this year. A majority of the roster plays in Grenada's domestic league, but goalkeeper Jason Belfon and striker Jamal Charles have European experience.
