USA vs Cuba - Who's in and who's out?
USA's coach Gregg Berhalter decided to leave Jozy Altidore out of this clash, which will prevent the striker from getting closer to the all-time goalscoring leaders for the Stars and Stripes. Altidore needs 16 goals to become the USMNT's all-time top scorer. LAFC's Walker Zimmerman was also left out for this game despite being called up in the preliminary squad list released by the North America side.
Cuba's coach Idalberto Medero decided to leave goalkeeper Diosvelis Guerra out of the squad that will play against the USMNT. The shot-stopper's international experience could have come in handy, but Medero decided to stick with Sandy Sánchez, Elier Pozo and Nelson Johnston to guard the team's net.
