How to watch USMNT vs. Serbia in international friendly originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
The 2026 FIFA World Cup cycle is about to begin for one of the three co-hosts.
The United States men’s national team is back in action for two January international friendlies, the first games for the country since its round of 16 exit at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
However, don’t expect the likes of European stars such as Christian Pulisic (currently injured), Tyler Adams, Weston McKinnie and more to embrace the pitch. Instead, since FIFA does not recognize the January friendlies on its international calendar, the USMNT will field more youngsters who could earn their way to a roster spot in 2026.
Serbia is the first of the two opponents the USMNT will face. Here’s what to know about the contest:
