BERHALTER NAMES TESSMANN IN THE 25-PLAYER ROSTER AHEAD OF USA-TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO ON JAN. 31
USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter has chosen a 25-player roster that includes Tanner Tessman in advance of USA-Trinidad & Tobago on Jan. 31 in Orlando.
The group was selected from an initial list of 12 senior team players and 26 U-23 MNT players that began training on Jan. 9 at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.
At the start of a crucial year for the U.S. Men’s National Team that includes the Concacaf Nations League Final Four, the Gold Cup and the start of 2022 World Cup Qualifying, the tilt against the Soca Warriors gives the players an opportunity to stake their claim for spots.
“These last two weeks have been an absolute pleasure. The hard work and determination demonstrated by the entire group confirm that the player pool is headed in the right direction,” Berhalter said. “As we transition to Orlando, we switch gears and focus on competing as we prepare to face Trinidad and Tobago.”
Tessmann, 19, looks to make his senior team debut in the international friendly after earning a spot on the USMNT roster. He is also eligible to compete for a roster spot for the 2021 Concacaf Olympic Qualifying Championship to be played from March 18-30 in Guadalajara, Mexico.
