The U.S. men's national team earned a mixed set of results in its opening month of Concacaf World Cup Qualifiers in September and now has its sights set on a perfect record in October with a trio of matches right around the corner.
Gregg Berhalter's squad begins a three-match slate on October 7 in Austin, Texas against Jamaica before future dates with Panama and Costa Rica over the next week.
The Americans ended September's slate with an important 4-1 win over Honduras away from home, a positive closure to what many believe was a disappointing start to World Cup Qualifying.
Several familiar faces returned to action for the USMNT including Christian Pulisic, Tyler Adams, and Brenden Aaronson, while Weston McKennie, Gio Reyna, and Timothy Weah all missed time due to separate reasons.
Berhalter will once again have many roster decisions to make in October, especially with England's red-list agenda opening up issues for a handful of eligible players ahead of the October 10 trip to Panama.
In addition, several players still have two weeks of competitive matches to play, which could cause fitness and/or injury problems unless everyone remains fully healthy.
Here's a closer look at who Berhalter should call in for October's WCQ schedule:
