The United States Men’s National Team will face Bosnia and Herzegovina in a friendly at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California on Dec. 18 at 5 p.m. However, since the match falls outside of an international window, the USMNT is expected to be composed mostly of players based in the United States. The roster consists of:
Goalkeepers: John Pulskamp (Sporting Kansas City), Gabriel Slonina (Chicago Fire), Matt Turner (New England Revolution)
Defenders: George Bello (Atlanta United), Justin Che (FC Dallas), Jonathan Gomez (Louisville City), Kobi Henry (Orange County SC), Henry Kessler (New England Revolution), Brooks Lennon (Atlanta United), Aaron Long (NY Red Bulls), Kevin Paredes (DC United) Bryan Reynolds (Roma/ITA), Auston Trusty (Colorado Rapids), Walker Zimmerman (Nashville SC)
Midfielders: Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), Col Bassett (Colorado Rapids), Johnny Cardoso (Internacional/BRA), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes)
Forwards: Taylor Booth (Bayern Munich II/GER), Caden Clark (NY Red Bulls), Cade Cowell (San Jose Earthquakes), Jesus Ferreira (FC Dallas), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders), Ricardo Pepi (FC Dallas), Gyasi Zardes (Columbus Crew)
The Bosnia match will help the USMNT prepare for a trio of World Cup qualifiers during the January international window. That period features matches against El Salvador on Jan. 27, Canada on Jan. 30 and Honduras on Feb. 2. Through six matches, the United States is in second place in the Octagonal, one point ahead of Canada.
This will be the third meeting between the teams since the Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina was formed in 1992.
