With the United States Men's National Team's debut in Copa America 2024 approaching, the coach seems to have settled on his strategy to face Bolivia. In a tactical formation that blends defensive solidity with attacking flair, the American coach has assembled a squad that promises to challenge their opponents.

The foundation of the team begins with Matt Turner in goal. In defense, names like Antonee Robinson, Tim Ream, Chris Richards, and Joe Scally bring both experience and youth, essential for neutralizing opposing attacks.

In midfield, he has opted for a double pivot with Johnny Cardoso and Weston McKennie, providing a combination of defensive cover and distribution. Ahead of them, an attacking quartet that's mouth-watering: Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna, Tim Weah, and Ricardo Pepi not only possess the ability to create decisive plays but also finish them with finesse.

Berhalter seems to have found the perfect balance between youth and experience, technical prowess, and intensity. This lineup aims not only for victory against Bolivia but also serves as a crucial test for the evolution of US soccer towards their ultimate goal: the 2026 World Cup.

This lineup represents not just a competitive team but a clear signal that the American squad is ready to challenge the big names in South American soccer. With the opportunity to measure themselves against CONMEBOL opponents, the Copa America couldn't come at a more opportune moment for the United States. The lingering question is: can the United States make history in the Copa America?
