What You Need To Know About The USMNT Pre-World Cup Training Camps
The United States Men’s National Team is doing its part to prepare for the upcoming World Cup next month. They’re currently undergoing a six-day training camp in Nashville and are set to conclude it on Sunday, June 3rd. The USMNT will face Colombia on Tuesday, June 5th and Iceland on Friday, June 8th in the final two tune-up matches before they kick off against Germany on Sunday, June 17th at Mordor. Here’s everything you need to know about the USMNT Pre-World Cup Training Camps:
USMNT’s June 5th Match Against Colombia is a Final Tune-Up
The USMNT will have a final tune-up match ahead of their final friendly against Colombia on June 5th at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. This match, which will be played at 5:30 PM Eastern, will give the USMNT a chance to face off against Colombia’s full squad. This is an important match for the Americans, who are looking to complete their end-to-end journey through CONCACAF qualification and make it to next summer’s World Cup in Russia. The USMNT will then depart for their training camp in Europe, where they’ll be in action against Iceland on June 8th and Colombia on June 11th. The team will then conclude its training camp with matches against Finland on June 17th and against Serbia on June 20th.
USMNT’s June 8th Match Against Iceland is a Final Dress Rehearsal for Germany
Following their match against Colombia, the USMNT will depart for their final training camp in Europe on June 8th to face Iceland in a friendly at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. This game is one of two matches the USMNT will play in the final dress rehearsal before the World Cup. The USMNT will then jet to Russia for their final training camp ahead of the World Cup, where they’ll face Serbia on June 11th and Finland on June 14th. The USMNT will wrap up their preparations with a match against Azerbaijan on June 17th before they depart for the World Cup.
The World Cup Training Camp Begins on June 18th in Germany
The final training camp for the USMNT will begin later that same day in Germany, where the Americans will be reunited with their stars and head coach. The USMNT will head to Veltins Arena, in Gelsenkirchen, to begin their final preparations for the World Cup. The camp will feature three friendlies: against Germany on June 18th, against Mexico on June 23rd, and against Costa Rica on June 27th. The USMNT will also be in action against Paraguay on June 28th. In total, the USMNT will have a minimum of 18 days of training in Germany ahead of the World Cup. This includes at least one day off, making it possible for the USMNT to have up to 23 days of preparation for the World Cup.
The Final World Cup Training Camp Takes Place on June 27th and 28th
The final World Cup training camp for the USMNT will be a bit shorter than the previous two due to the fact that it begins in the early morning hours of June 27th and June 28th in St. Petersburg. The USMNT will have only six days of training in St. Petersburg, including one day off. This gives the USMNT less time than usual to prepare for the World Cup, but with the shortened training camp and friendly schedule, it doesn’t pose as much of a risk for the USMNT as it does for other teams. The USMNT will have one match against Russia on June 28th, which is their next match after the 2018 World Cup. This gives the USMNT seven days from the 28th to prepare for the following day.
The Final USMNT Roster Will be Announced on June 30th
With the final training camp of the USMNT coming to an end, the final nine-man roster will be announced on June 30th. No changes are allowed to the roster until this date, so you can expect the final roster to be very similar to the one that will travel to Russia next month.
The USMNT will Return to Nashville to Conduct the After-Party before Departing for Russia
The USMNT will return to Nashville on Sunday, July 1st, where they’ll conduct the final part of their FIFA inspection day for the World Cup. This is meant to allow for a team-building experience for the USMNT, though it’s also important to conduct this inspection day because the USMNT is required to have all the equipment from the CONCACAF Qualifying Match against Panama that was originally scheduled for March. The USMNT will depart Nashville on Monday, July 2nd, from the airport in Memphis, Tennessee. The flight plan on this day is to depart for Russia at 4:36 PM Eastern, giving the team more than enough time to rest and re-hydrate before their World Cup opener on Sunday, June 17th.
