2024 USMNT Copa América roster: Final roster includes Josh Sargent

United States men’s national team coach Gregg Berhalter named his final 26-player roster for the U.S.-hosted 2024 Copa América on Friday.

Forward Josh Sargent, who was a doubt to survive the cut after missing both of the USMNT’s pre-Copa tuneup games because of a lingering foot injury, was included. Midfielder Timmy Tillman was the only player released from the 27-man squad Berhalter chose for early June friendlies against Colombia and Brazil.

Tyler Adams, Weston McKennie and captain Christian Pulisic, scorer of the Americans’ only goal in Wednesday’s 1-1 tie against Brazil, are all there. The only regular who isn’t is right back Sergino Dest, who will miss the 16-team tournament after tearing his ACL in April.
