Team news & rosters

Position USMNT roster
Goalkeepers Turner, Johnson, Guzan
Defenders Cannon, Vines, Pines, Zimmerman, Robinson, Sands, Moore, Bello
Midfielders Busio, Roldan, Yueill, Lletget, Williamson, Acosta
Forwards Arriola, Gioacchini, Zardes, Dike, Hoppe, Lewis

Doubts persist over the availability of Paul Arriola and Reggie Cannon, with the pair nursing injuries from the opening games.

Gregg Berhalter shook things up for the second game of the group and it yielded a 6-1 victory against Martinique, so it seems unlikely that he will deviate too much.

However, the likes of Gyasi Zardes, Sebastian Lletget and Kellyn Acosta will be pushing for a place in the starting XI.

Predicted USMNT starting XI: Turner, Zimmerman, Sands, Robinson, Bello, Moore, Williamson, Lletget, Roldan, Gioacchini, Dike. 

Position Canada roster
Goalkeepers St Clair, Crepeau, Leutwiler
Defenders Johnston, Miller, Vitoria, Sturing, Henry, Laryea, Gutierrez
Midfielders Piette, Eustaquio, Fraser, Kaye, Paton, Osorio
Forwards Pasher, Cavallini, Hoilett, Corbeanu, Buchanan, Larin, Akinola

Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies had to pull out of the roster ahead of the tournament, while Lille’s Jonathan David is not present either, but Canada has been inspired by a number of other key players.

Cyle Larin leads the scoring charts with three goals and Portugal-based Stephen Eustaquio has two to his name, though, unfortunately for the Canucks, the latter is suspended for this game.

Samuel Piette is expected to be the replacement for Eustaquio. Meanwhile, the game could also see a debut for Ayo Akinola, who turned his back on the USMNT in order to switch to Canada.

Stephen Vitoria, Alistair Johnston, Lucas Cavallini, Liam Fraser and Mark-Anthony Kaye are all carrying yellow cards and at risk of suspension.

Predicted Canada starting XI: Crepeau, Vitoria, Henry, Miller, Buchanan, Johnston, Osorio, Kaye, Piette, Larin, Cavallini.
