The road to the 2020 World Cup in Qatar for the U.S. Men’s National Team begins in Austria on March 29 when Gregg Berhalter’s side will meet Jamaica in the rematch of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup Semifinal. The U.S. will follow up that friendly with a trip to Belfast on April 1 where they will play Northern Ireland.
The two friendlies kicks off a busy year that will see the American’s play in three competitions this year, starting with the Concacaf Nations League Final Four in June. Winners of League A’s Group A, the USMNT takes on Honduras in one semifinal, while Mexico and Costa Rica will square off in the other, with the winners competing for the inaugural Nations League title. The matches are scheduled for the FIFA window in the first week of June, with the venues and times still to be determined.
The following month, the U.S. will compete in the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup in search of its seventh confederation championship title. The USMNT has been drawn into Group A with Canada, Martinique and a third team to be determined through a qualifying tournament. The United States last lifted the trophy in 2017, when Jordan Morris netted the game-winner against Jamaica in the 2-1 victory.
Those games serve as prelude to the start of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying, which will feature an eight-team final round and begins in Sept. of 2021.
