USMNT schedule 2024: USA soccer games, date, time, live stream and TV channel for Copa America, Nations League | Sporting News

Published

on

The United States are steaming headlong towards an era-defining 2026 World Cup on home soil, but there’s plenty of roadblocks along the way, with the FIFA championship still more than two years in the future.

Gregg Berhalter is back as head coach, having been re-hired after his contract expired at the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, where the U.S. managed to reach the Round of 16 but fell to the Netherlands.

2024 will prove to be a vital year, punctuated by the Copa America in the summer as CONCACAF and CONMEBOL team up for a special edition of the South American continental championship.

They will also contest the final stages of the CONCACAF Nations League, before looking ahead to 2025 where they will look to perform in the Gold Cup with the 2026 World Cup rapidly approaching.

USMNT schedule, fixtures for 2024

With Gregg Berhalter back at the helm, the United States will play through a massive 2024 calendar year that features matches against some of the world’s top international sides. The 2024 USMNT schedule is highlighted by participation in the Copa America, where they’ve been drawn into a tough group alongside Uruguay, Panama, and Bolivia.

The U.S. secured its third straight CONCACAF Nations League title in March, meaning the only matches between now and the start of the Copa America will be a pair of international friendlies just before the start of the tournament against Colombia and Brazil.

USA drawn into Group C for 2024 Copa America

The U.S. was drawn into an intriguing Group C for the 2024 Copa America, and will be expected to advance to the knockout stage from the four-team collection.

Their most difficult opponent will undoubtedly be Uruguay, who are in good form under Marcelo Bielsa having beaten both Argentina and Brazil in the early stages of CONMEBOL 2026 World Cup qualifying. They will also play group stage matches against Panama and Bolivia, with the top two teams in the Group C standings advancing to the knockout round.

If they qualify for the quarterfinals, they would face a team emerging from Group D, which features Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, and a CONCACAF playoff qualifier, either Honduras or Costa Rica.

USA reach semifinals of CONCACAF Nations League

The U.S. got past Trinidad & Tobago in the CONCACAF Nations League quarterfinals, thanks in large part to a 3-0 first leg win at home, which set them up for advancement. That result proved vital, as they dropped the second leg on the road 2-1 but advanced anyways thanks to their aggregate advantage.

They will now look ahead to March, 2024 where the Nations League will be concluded. First up is a semifinal matchup against Jamaica, and depending on that result, they will either play in the final or third place match against either Mexico or Panama.

Quarterfinals

Quarterfinal matchups were between four seeded teams, which earned a bye to this round, against four qualifiers from the group stage. They were contested across two legs back in November of 2023.

Match 1st Leg 2nd leg
#2 USA 4-2 Trinidad and Tobago 3-0 2-1
#4 Costa Rica 1-6 Panama 0-3 3-1
#3 Canada 4-4 Jamaica* 2-1 2-3
#1 Mexico** 2-2 Honduras 2-0 2-0

* Advanced on away goals tiebreaker
** Advanced via penalty shootout

Semifinals

To determine semifinal matchups, quarterfinal winners are re-seeded, placed in a table based on their results across the two quarterfinal legs.

United States U-23 to compete in 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris

While the women’s side of the Olympics features a fully professional roster, the men’s competition is restricted to a U-23 tournament.

Teams must deploy a roster of players entirely comprising of youth-team individuals, with three exemptions per nation. Those three players may be any individuals, so head coaches must use their roster selections wisely.

While in theory they can pick from any players in the national team pool, in practice that’s unrealistic, as the Olympics take place just a short time after the Copa America or Euros, and a short time before the start of the club season, meaning it’s impossible to ask players to participate in both. Thus, players who participate with their senior national teams in major tournaments are almost universally ruled out of selection for their Olympic squad.

Group stage

The United States was drawn into Group A of the men’s Olympics bracket, alongside hosts France, who are coached by Thierry Henry. The USYNT beat France in a friendly back in the March international window.

Knockout stage

Should they qualify by finishing top two in their group, the knockout stage path for the United States will be determined by their group stage position. Finishing first in Group A sees them match up against the second place finisher in Group B, while a second-place finish in Group A sees them take on Group B’s winner.

Group B includes Argentina, Ukraine, Morocco, and a to-be-determined qualifier from the Asian confederation.
