LA Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget named to USMNT pre-camp roster

LOS ANGELES (Thursday, Oct. 31, 2019) – LA Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget has been named by USMNT Head Coach Gregg Berhalter to a 20-man pre-camp roster from Nov. 2-9 at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. in preparation for the conclusion of Concacaf Nations League Group A play.

Lletget joins the roster after having made 12 previous appearances for his country, while scoring two goals. He most recently joined the USMNT earlier this month for Nations League action during matches against Cuba and Canada.

With the pre-camp falling outside the FIFA international window, the European-based players that will be part of the USMNT roster will arrive in Orlando beginning Nov. 10, when the formal camp opens. That list will be revealed Nov. 6 on ussoccer.com.

Facing must-win situations against Canada and Cuba in order to have a chance to advance to the knockout round, the U.S. will look for payback against the Canadians on Nov. 15 at Exploria Stadium in Orlando (4 p.m. PT; ESPN2, UniMas, TUDN). Four days later, the USA meets Cuba in George Town, Cayman Islands. Kickoff at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex is set for 4:30 p.m. PT, and the match will be broadcast live on FS1, UniMas and TUDN.

Fans can follow both matches via U.S. Soccer’s official Facebook, Twitter (@USMNT) and Instagram (@USMNT) accounts.

“We have the opportunity to take advantage of the MLS post-season window to start preparations for the matches against Canada and Cuba,” Berhalter said. “It’s another week to keep progressing as a group as we focus on getting the results we need to advance to the knockout phase of the Nations League.”
