MNT on TV: One Last Chance for Gold Cup Roster

With U.S. MNT head coach Bruce Arena set to name his 23-man roster for the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Sunday, members of the domestic player pool have one final shot to make their case for this summer's tournament.

U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Bruce Arena will announce the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup roster Sunday at 1:20 p.m. ET during FOX’s coverage of the FIFA Confederations Cup.

While the roster is close to set, here’s what to watch for in the final weekend before the U.S. MNT convenes in Nashville:

  • On Friday, a heavy dose of Gold Cup-eligible players will square off as the Toronto FC trio of Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley and Justin Morrow welcomes Juan Agudelo, Kelyn Rowe and New England Revolution to BMO Field (8 p.m. ET – MLS Live).
  • An hour later, FC Dallas’ Kellyn Acosta and Matt Hedges will make their final cases for roster inclusion in their Texas Derby visit to Houston Dynamo (9 p.m. ET – UniMas, Facebook Live).
  • On Saturday, Gyasi Zardes and LA Galaxy look to extend their nine-match unbeaten streak when they welcome Sporting KC Gold Cup hopefuls Matt Besler, Graham Zusi and Dom Dwyer to StubHub Center (10:30 p.m. ET – MLS Live).
  • The weekend closes with a prime Cascadia Cup rivalry clash as Darlington Nagbe and the Portland Timbers entertain Clint Dempsey, Jordan Morris and Cristian Roldan (10 p.m. ET – ESPN2).
