Yedlin, Zardes back in the fold, Johnson left off”

Benny Feilhaber, Juan Agudelo and Michael Orozco were among the somewhat surprising selections in the 26-man squad named to take on Panama and Trinidad & Tobago in the final matches of the hexagonal round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying. "We have a pretty balanced roster with experienced players", Arena said in a US Soccer statement. The issue is whether we get the results we need, and I think we're positioned to do that. Bruce Arena's squad needs to get six points from six to surely punch a ticket to Russian Federation next summer.

U.S. men's national team coach Bruce Arena has called up the 26 players who will have the massive task of booking the nation's ticket to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

The U.S., Panama and Honduras are essentially playing in a three-team mini-league to determine who earns CONCACAF's final automatic berth to the World Cup (third place), the region's playoff spot against either Australia or Syria (fourth place) and who sees their World Cup dream end next month.

USA-Panama, presented by Volpi Foods, kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on October 6 from Orlando City Stadium in Orlando, Fla. The USMNT now sit in 4th place in the CONCACAF standings, which would guarantee them a playoff against the 5th-place finisher from the Asian qualifying. A pair of wins in the October qualifiers would virtually ensure qualification to the 2018 World Cup - Honduras would need to win both its remaining qualifiers and make up an eight-goal margin in goal difference to keep the USA from an automatic berth despite two October victories. Coverage on October 10 from Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva, Trinidad begins at 8 p.m. ET on beIN SPORT and UNIVERSO. The result of the USA's upcoming game against Panama could determine whether the US earns an automatic berth to the World Cup.
