On the 20th of June, the main event in American football will begin in the USA - 16 best teams from North and South America will start the fight for the Copa América title.

The Dailysports team tells you about one of the participants in the tournament - tournament hosts USA.

What is the highest US achievement in Copa América history?

The Copa América is predominantly Latin American teams. North American teams can play if they receive an invitation to the tournament, as the Copa América takes place in another confederation.

In addition to the upcoming tournament, the U.S. national team has been invited to the tournament four times: in 1993, 1995, 2007 and 2016. The Americans have so far failed to win medals at the tournament, finishing fourth twice (in 1995 and 2016).

Who was included in the U.S. national team's bid for the Copa América?

So far, the U.S. national team has not provided a final application, but there is a list of 27 players for the friendly matches, already from which head coach Gregg Berhalter will choose a final list of 26 players. He has to do it by the 15th of June.

  • Goalkeepers: Ethan Horvath (Cardiff City), Sean Johnson (Toronto FC), Matt Turner (Nottingham Forest).
  • Defenders: Cameron Carter-Vickers (Celtic), Kristoffer Lund (Palermo), Mark McKenzie (Genk), Shaq Moore (Nashville), Tim Ream (Fulham), Chris Richards (Crystal Palace), Antony Robinson (Fulham), Myles Robinson (Cincinnati FC), Joe Scully (Borussia Mönchengladbach).
  • Midfielders: Tyler Adams (Bournemouth), Johnny Cardoso (Real Betis), Luca de la Torre (Celta), Weston McKennie (Juventus), Yunus Musa (AC Milan), Giovanni Reina (Nottingham Forest), Malik Tillman (PSV), Timothy Tillman (LAFC).
  • Forwards: Brenden Aaronson (Union), Folarin Balogun (Monaco), Ricardo Pepi (PSV Eindhoven), Christian Pulisic (AC Milan), Josh Sargent (Norwich City), Tim Vea (Juventus), Hadji Wright (Coventry).

Who is the head coach of the US national team?

The actions of American footballers since 2018 with a short break are led by domestic specialist Gregg Berhalter. As a player, he spent the predominant part of his career in Dutch and German clubs.

In December 2018, he took over the US national team for the first time as a coach. The following year, he won silver in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, and two years later he got his first victories with the team: a triumph in the same cup and the CONCACAF Nations League.

Berhalter left the U.S. national team at the end of his contract at the end of 2022 and returned to the team in June 2023. He is expected to direct the U.S. players at the 2026 home World Cup.

How did the U.S. qualify for Copa América 2024?

The Copa América 2024 was the first time the guests from CONCACAF had to qualify for. The qualifying tournament was last year's CONCACAF Nations League, and it was no big deal for the Americans, as they had to reach the quarter-finals of the Nations League A league to qualify, which happened in the group with El Salvador and Grenada.

What is the schedule of matches in the US group at Copa América 2024?

Despite their host status, the Americans will not be in Group A, but have been placed in Group C, where their opponents will be Uruguay, Panama and Bolivia.

  • 24.06 00:00 USA - Bolivia (AT&T Stadium. Arlighton, Texas)
  • 28.06 00:00 Panama - USA (Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Atlanta, Georgia)
  • 02.07 03:00 USA - Uruguay (Arrowhead Stadium. Kansas, Missouri)

Which kit will the USA national team play in at Copa América 2024?

Team USA will play the tournament in Nike kits. Both kits are inspired by the US national flag, but the guest kit is more interesting. It features a dominant colour of blue with white transitioning to red.

What are the odds on the US national team at the Copa América 2024?

Bookmakers are predicting the USA to get out of the group at odds of 1.10, but winning the tournament is basically a pretty unlikely outcome at odds of 15.
