The US men’s national team are set for their second and final game of the Septmeber international break as they take on Oman at Allianz Field.
USMNT boss Gregg Berhalter, now preparing to take the touchline for the second game in his second stint, has already confirmed a goalkeeper change for the game and stated that there’s a good chance a similar starting lineup will take the field Tuesday night.
But since the US’ win over Uzbekistan was anything but convincing, could Berhalter make a few changes to the lineup to ensure a better overall performance?
GK: Ethan Horvath – With Matt Turner returning to England as he’s expecting the birth of his second child with his partner, Berhalter has already confirmed that Horvath will make his ninth appearance for the US.
RB: Sergiño Dest – After impressing in the Nations League finals, Dest will want to try to replicate that against Oman to lock down the right-back position as his own.
CB: Miles Robinson – The Atlanta United defender didn’t get a chance last time out, but he could be in line for a start after Chris Richards got the starting nod on Saturday.
CB: Tim Ream – He continues to provide the steady, calm presence at the back and Berhalter will once again rely on him and his leadership.
LB: Antonee Robinson – The Fulham full-back gets another start under Berhalter at the position – will anyone take away the left-back shirt from him?
CM: Weston McKennie – One of the first names on the team sheet alongside Christian Pulisic as he continues to impress at the international level.
CM: Luca de la Torre – de la Torres was hooked before halftime (35th minute) but should get another chance in the starting lineup vs Oman.
CM: Yunus Musah – The young AC Milan player is becoming a nailed-on starter for the USA in the middle of the park.
RW: Christian Pulisic – The Stars and Stripes’ best player will start out wide again and will look to score again.
ST: Folarin Balogun – Although Ricardo Pepi came on after halftime and score late in the game, Balogun will more than likely get the nod again up front.
LW: Brenden Aaronson – After Tim Weah played 64 minutes last time out, Aaronson could be in line for a start on the left-wing.
