USMNT face uncertainty as Mexico qualifier nears

The United States men’s national team is set to face North American rival Mexico on November 12 in Cincinnati for the most anticipated home World Cup qualifier in the Concacaf Octagonal. 

But as excitement builds and the game approaches, uncertainty looms over the USMNT squad. 

Head coach Gregg Berhalter must now navigate through major injuries and accumulated yellow cards when calling up players to the November roster. While the United States stands in second on the Concacaf table, they cannot afford to slip up. 

Tyler Adams, John Brooks, DeAndre Yedlin, Jordan Pefok and Weston McKennie are all one yellow card away from a one-match suspension, and given the already limited number of players available, losing just one could alter the lineup entirely.

Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna, two crucial figures for the USMNT, remain doubtful for their respective clubs after each picked up an injury during the September qualifiers.
