(WCMH) — The United States men’s soccer team has its squad set for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

USA manager Gregg Berhalter, formerly of the Columbus Crew, has set the final 26-man roster that was announced Wednesday for the USMNT’s first appearance at a World Cup since 2014. The USA did not qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Part of the United States’ journey to the World Cup was two trips to Columbus to play qualification matches at Lower.com Field. They defeated Costa Rica in October 2021 and El Salvador in January.

The American men’s best finish at a World Cup was nearly a century ago when they came in third at the inaugural edition of the tournament in Uruguay in 1930.
