Pulisic headlines experienced United States squad”

Third in the final CONCACAF qualifying group for the 2018 World Cup, the United States face Costa Rica in New Jersey on Friday and then visit Estadio Olimpico in San Pedro Sula for a September 5 clash with Honduras.

The top three teams claim automatic berths to Russian Federation next year.

In all, the squad includes 26 players who have seen global duty already this year. I think we're strong in the goal, up top very strong, and I like our midfield combinations.

Arena announced his 26-man roster on Monday (AEST), including captain Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard, DaMarcus Beasley and Jozy Altidore.

U.S. captain Michael Bradley is back after a summer that saw him score against Mexico and win the Golden Ball at the Gold Cup.

The most notable absence is the DeAndre Yedlin, who has yet to play for Newcastle this season as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

"I think we have a good roster", Arena said.
