With the USMNT's next two CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers coming up soon, it's crucial that the U.S. get some points out of these matches after losing to Honduras in the first game of the Hex.
Jurgen Klinsmann is expected to release the roster for the upcoming games against Costa Rica and Mexico on Monday. The U.S. will be at home when it faces Costa Rica on March 22 and will travel to Mexico for the March 26 match against El Tri.
Against Honduras, Klinsmann named a 24-man roster, but this time around, the U.S. will play two matches over a short period of time, which can result in yellow card accumulation and injuries. This calls for bringing in an extra player or two, so I will assume that a 26-man roster will be named.
Here are my predictions on who gets called up and who misses out.
