The USMN has confirmed that it will play in the Copa América 2014 in the US.
The USM is set to be the defending world champions in the tournament, which was first held in 1994.
The US currently sits in second place with seven points, but it has lost three times to Brazil in the last nine games, and will face Spain and Argentina in the group stages.
The Copa has been held in the United Kingdom since its inception in 1994, but since the US’s World Cup bid collapsed, it has been played in the UK.
The US is set for a strong start to the tournament with three of its most recent four victories coming against Argentina and Brazil.
“This tournament is a fantastic opportunity for the United Americans,” US Soccer said in a statement announcing the US roster.
“This competition provides us the opportunity to play in front of an international audience, and this is an opportunity for our players to showcase their quality and potential.
As we look ahead to the opening match against Colombia in the Group Stage on Friday, I can’t wait to share with our fans what the US will be able to accomplish in this exciting competition.”
The US has played in every major tournament in the world, but never before has the tournament been held at a time of the country’s own choosing.
The first edition of the tournament was held in 1970, and the final was played in 1991.
