R.P. due to a back injury. It is uncertain whether midfielder Tyler Adams deserves to start after Leipzig missed out on a 1-0 semi-final victory. He is the last American international to score a goal against Mexico, having won the match against Mexico in a September 2018 friendly. U.S. manager Greg Berholder has indicated that Adams deserves to play Sunday night, but it remains to be seen if he will start.
Berholder will try to break the page of its worst recent form against El Tri. The United States has lost three of its last four matches against Mexico in 2013, while Mexico has won four of the last six meetings between the two sides, including the Allies. Extending their time together in the MLS, Berholder joined the Tata Martino-coach side 0-6-1, however won a penalty shootout in a draw where the team was the hero for current US goalkeeper Jack Stephen Berholder’s Columbus.
