Joining the Texas native in the Red, White, and Blue are midfielders Michael Bradley and Darlington Nagbe, forward Jozy Altidore, and goalkeepers Tim Howard and Jesse Gonzalez. Per tournament regulations, teams have the opportunity to make up to six changes to the roster in the 24 hours following the completion of the Group Stage.

Coming off Saturday's 3-0 win against Nicaragua, the U.S. finished first in Group B of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup after collecting seven points from three matches (2-0-1).

Four of the most experienced players in the current U.S. MNT player pool, Altidore, Bradley Dempsey and Howard each bring more than 100 caps worth of worldwide seasoning to the U.S. squad for the Knockout Round.

The United States will meet El Salvador in the quarter-finals in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
