CHICAGO.- United States interim coach Dave Sarachan announced a list of 22 players for a friendly against Paraguay in Cary, North Carolina, on March 27.

On the roster of 22 players, three are currently participating in the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League and have helped their MLS teams advance to the semifinals of the 2018 SCCL edition. Midfielder Tyler Adams scored in the 3-1 victory of the New York Red Bulls against Club Tijuana in the quarterfinal second leg on March 13, while goalkeeper Alex Bono and midfielder Marky Delgado started with Toronto FC that also beat the reigning champions of the Liga MX Tigres UANL on Wednesday.

Christian Pulisic has not been summoned because USA has allowed him to focus on Borussia Dortmund for the time being.

Antonee Robinson, Marky Delgado, Timothy Weah and Andrija Novakovich are also looking to add their first international match and be able to impress.

Weah has been rewarded after being summoned by the first PSG team in recent weeks, as he also acted with the USA in the U-17 World Cup, while Robinson already played with Bolton and Novakovich scored goals in friendlies in the Netherlands.
