Ochoa leaves due to injury.

The United States Men’s National Team roster continues to undergo changes ahead of next week’s friendly against El Salvador. U.S. Soccer announced earlier today that Real Salt Lake goalkeeper David Ochoa has left training camp after suffering a right quadriceps injury. It was his first training camp with the USMNT, and he was competing to possibly appear on the field next week.

Ochoa will be replaced by San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski, who has appeared in two prior USMNT camps but has yet to see the field. He was a part of the U-23 national team that went to Mexico for Olympic qualifying back in March before the qualifying tournament was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. He was also a part of the United States U-20 team that competed at the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.

The current USMNT roster:

GOALKEEPERS (3): CJ Dos Santos (Benfica), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), JT Marcinkowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

DEFENDERS (8): Julian Araujo (LA Galaxy), Kyle Duncan (New York Red Bulls), Marco Farfan (Portland Timbers), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Mark McKenzie (Philadelphia Union), Mauricio Pineda (Chicago Fire), Sam Vines (Colorado Rapids), Walker Zimmerman (Nashville SC)

MIDFIELDERS (6): Brenden Aaronson (Philadelphia Union), Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), Cole Bassett (Colorado Rapids), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Andrés Perea (Orlando City), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes)

FORWARDS (6): Ayo Akinola (Toronto FC), Efrain Alvarez (LA Galaxy), Paul Arriola (D.C. United), Daryl Dike (Orlando City SC), Djordje Mihailovic (Chicago Fire), Chris Mueller (Orlando City)

The roster continues to be fluid, so stay tuned as we update you on any further changes before the team takes the field next Wednesday.
