LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — US Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has named the 23-player roster for the winner-take-all CONCACAF Cup match against Mexico.

The winner of the CONCACAF Cup earns a spot in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

The match will take place on Saturday, October 10th, at 6:30 pm PT, at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

“This roster is obviously full of experience,” Klinsmann said.

“This is about having a group of players who understand exactly now what this is all about. This is about momentum. This is about high energy. This is about representing my country. This is about belief and a high-level of aggressiveness in a one-off game to beat Mexico and to get to the Confederations Cup. It’s a unique opportunity, and you have to embrace it and give everything you have,” he added.
