TYAC Staff
United States Men’s National Team head coach Bruce Arena has named 26 men to the training camp roster in anticipation of two upcoming World Cup qualifiers. The road to Russia continues on Friday, September 1st when the Yanks head to New Jersey to take on Costa Rica at Red Bull Arena (6:3o PM EST). The United States will rack up the frequent flier miles four days later when the squad faces Honduras (5:3o PM EST) – the first meeting since a Clint Dempsey hat trick led to a 6-0 victory in March.
