Berhalter took charge of the USMNT again this summer and secured victories in his first two matches against Uzbekistan (3-0) and Oman (4-0). These wins showcased the team’s potential with a strong lineup.
This friendly against Germany poses as a significant test for the young USMNT squad against a fired-up German team under new boss Julian Nagelsmann, who replaced Hansi Flick. Nagelsmann’s debut as head coach will surely bring a reaction from the European powerhouse.

Focus on USMNT
This is a crucial window for the USMNT as they face Germany and Ghana in friendlies. These games will provide insight into the progression of the young team since their last 16 appearance in the World Cup. Previous matchups have mostly been against CONCACAF opponents, making it difficult to gauge their current form. However, these upcoming friendlies will offer a better understanding. Berhalter’s rehiring after a contract investigation and the team’s strong performance in the CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup indicate a promising future.
Midfielder and captain Tyler Adams will be missed due to a hamstring injury, while Cameron Carter-Vickers and Gio Reyna return from injuries. Newcomers Lennard Maloney, Kevin Paredes, and Kristoffer Lund join the squad. The forward quartet of Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah, Folarin Balogun, and Reyna will be under scrutiny to see how well they click. Without Adams in midfield, Weston McKennie and Yunus Musah will assume additional responsibilities. Both players have had strong starts to their Serie A campaigns for Juventus and AC Milan, respectively.

Focus on Germany
Die Mannschaft has introduced some new faces to the squad, with the potential debuts of Robert Andrich, Chris Fuhrich, and Kevin Behrens. However, the team boasts experienced players like Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane, Ilkay Gundogan, Joshua Kimmich, Antonio Rudiger, Mats Hummels, and Marc Andre ter-Stegen. With the fresh energy brought by Nagelsmann, there is hope for Germany to bounce back after a challenging period that included their absence from EURO 2024 qualifiers.
