The United States males’s nationwide staff is prepared for the 2024 Copa America, with Gregg Berhalter’s staff now figuring out who they are going to face within the group stage subsequent summer time.
The stars and stripes staff will attempt to keep away from one other semi-final in opposition to Lionel Messi and Argentina, however first they must face Group C which incorporates Bolivia, Panama and Uruguay.
Berhalter’s staff will start the season June 23 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in opposition to Bolivia. The South American nation is not at all a pushover, however the United States is predicted to start out their Copa America marketing campaign with three factors.
Next for United States of America it will likely be a conflict with Panama, who’re a well-recognized foe within the Concacaf Nations League and Gold Cup. Just below six months in the past, the USMNT fell to Panama on penalties within the Gold Cup semi-finals, with rivals Mexico they swept the event with Jaime ‘Jimmy Lozano on the helm.
The Stars and Stripes and Panama staff will meet on June 27 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. It would be the first time since 2015 that the United States will play in Atlanta and their first recreation ever on Atlanta United’s dwelling area.
Things then get a bit extra sophisticated for the USMNT, particularly in the event that they have not completed qualifying earlier than the third day of the group stage arrives. The staff will face South American giants Uruguay on July 1 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, in what can be an enormous conflict between two groups that possess a whole lot of expertise all around the area.
A probable state of affairs would see each groups already certified for the quarter-finals, organising a match based mostly fully on seeding for the knockout stage. But in soccer you by no means actually know, particularly with Berhalter main the United States.
