What is the team news?

Midfielder Yunus Musah went off injured against Wales with a toe injury. Weston McKennie is dealing with a groin problem. Should neither be fit enough to start, then Cristian Roldan could come in to sure up the midfield.

Sergino Dest was a doubt for the Wales match, and then exited the match, which could also put his place in doubt here.

Gregg Berhalter will reconsider Gio Reyna from the start, after holding him back over fitness concerns in the opener.
