The USA begins its final international window before the 2022 FIFA World Cup with plenty of questions still left to answer.
Head coach Gregg Berhalter told the media that he has made decisions on roughly 23 of the players who will make the World Cup roster, but there are still a few places on the final 26-man squad that are up for grabs. The competition for the center-back and striker positions will likely influence those final selections.
The Friday matchup against fellow World Cup participants Japan (ranked No. 24 in the world) represents a difficult matchup against an experienced and improved Asian side. Japan reached the Round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup, knocked out by Belgium in a 3-2 loss which saw Japan build a 2-0 lead before a late collapse in the final 20 minutes.
Japan's supporters expect the team to build on its knockout round qualification in 2018 and even shoot to go one step further and reach the quarterfinals. But they also realize they will have a tall task just getting out of their World Cup group: Germany, Spain, and Costa Rica join Japan with only two teams advancing.
Following this match, the USA will swing over to Spain where they will meet Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. Japan stay in Dusseldorf to take on Ecuador, also on Tuesday.
