USMNT schedule 2022: Every USA soccer match, date, time, TV channel, live stream through Qatar World Cup

After being absent four years ago, the United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) is back in the FIFA World Cup, having qualified for this year’s tournament in Qatar.

The USMNT confirmed their spot on the final day of regional World Cup qualifying, falling back despite a road loss to Costa Rica that wasn’t heavy enough to see the United States miss out for a second consecutive time. .

Now the American men, coached by Gregg Berhalter, will prepare to play in November and December in Qatar, aiming to raise the bar of expectations. The young American team is a talented but inexperienced group, and this tournament will not only redeem themselves for 2018, but it will also set the stage for a huge 2026 World Cup to be hosted on American soil, where the team aims to take a deep run.

What makes the World Cup so difficult? A mistake could mean an exit from the competition and a long wait of four years to make amends. Below is USA’s schedule ahead of the tournament in Qatar, along with its full World Cup schedule, including potential knockout opponents.

2022 USMNT Schedule

The United States, like all other World Cup participants, plays matches during the calendar year to prepare for the World Cup in November to ensure that the team is both in form and at a good pace. Team chemistry at the World Cup is critically important, making these games vital.

Friendlies against World Cup participants Morocco and Uruguay were to lead to two CONCACAF Nations League games against Grenada and El Salvador. For the September international break, a pair of friendlies against Japan and Saudi Arabia have been set, both to be played in Europe. The match against Saudi Arabia is booked for the Estadio Nueva Condomina in Murcia, Spain, and although the friendly match against Japan is yet to officially take place, however reports say it will take place in Germany.

European teams were not available for friendlies in June or September as they have to play UEFA Nations League matches during those international breaks. There is no international window scheduled for October as domestic leagues look to fill fixtures ahead of the World Cup break (November 14-December 18).

USMNT World Cup Knockout Schedule and Potential Opponents

While the United States have a vision to make World Cup history, they must first focus on escaping a tough group.

If the Stars & Stripes reach that goal, the knockout round awaits. In the modern era of the tournament, the United States has only reached the quarter-finals of a World Cup once, in 2002 after a round of 16 win over regional rivals Mexico. Therefore, winning a round of 16 game would represent a historic first for the United States against a non-continental opponent.

WORLD CUP DRAW BREAKDOWN:
Group A | Group B | Group C | Group D
Group E | Group F | Group G | Group H

Possible round of 16 for the United States

If the United States finished in the top two of Group B and advanced to the Round of 16, the United States would play one match against one of the Group A qualifiers: the host Qatar (No. 51), Netherlands (n°10), African champions Senegal (No. 20), or Ecuador (#46).

Although this group is difficult to predict, it also presents an opportunity for the United States. Given that host country Qatar has been seeded, in keeping with FIFA World Cup tradition, this means the United States is avoiding other powerhouses such as Brazil, Belgium and Spain, which are seeded in other groups. The Netherlands and Senegal plan to be the toughest potential opponents in the Round of 16.

If the United States manage to win Group B, they will face the runners-up in Group A in the Round of 16, a tasty proposition. If the United States finished second in Group B, the most predictable scenario given England’s presence, they would face the winner of Group A in the first knockout tie. Bettors have the Netherlands as favorites.

Possible quarter-final matches for the United States

Now we dream big. If the United States not only manages to qualify for the knockout stage, but win their round of 16 match, there are a number of possibilities for the opponent who would come next, and much depends on the situation. where USA finished in Group B.

A first place in Group B puts them on one side of the group, while a second place puts them on the other side – a mechanic put in place to prevent a repeat of group stage clashes too early in the round direct elimination.

If the United States win Group B and progress to the Round of 16 – a dream result for American fans – it would present a potential quarter-final game against the winner of Group D or the runner-up in Group C. That means, in all probability, a match against the defending champions Francewho are the clear favorites in Group D. However, it is possible that a second-placed Group C participant will surprise, such as Mexico or the pillars of UEFA Polandor even Group C favorites Argentina depending on how that band plays.

If the USA finish second in Group B and win their next round of 16, this presents a quarter-final game against the winners of Group C or the runners-up in Group D. This scenario likely presents a clash against Lionel Messi and Argentinathe favorites from Group C. However, this could also see a match against a surprise team from Group D like Denmark.

No matter who USA will face in the quarter-finals, just reaching this stage would make most American fans happy with the outcome of the tournament, and any result from here would not only be an added bonus, but would enter in history – the United States has never progressed. passed this stage in a World Cup in its modern format.
