Djordje Mihailovic added to USMNT roster for Concacaf Nations League matches
CHICAGO – Djordje Mihailovic has been added to the USMNT roster for upcoming Concacaf Nations League matches against Grenada and El Salvador. He replaces Tim Weah, who was withdrawn after entering the concussion return to play protocol following a head injury suffered in the 2-0 win for Lille away to Toulouse on Saturday.
Currently playing for AZ Alkmaar in the Dutch Eredvisie, Mihailovic will arrive tomorrow into Orlando.
Mihailovic has played six times for the USMNT, scoring in his international debut during the USA’s 3-0 shutout of Panama on Jan. 27, 2019, in Glendale, Ariz. His most recent appearance came in the 6-0 win against El Salvador on Dec. 9, 2020, in Ft. Lauderdale. A native of Jacksonville, Fla., he was part of the squad that reached the final of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup and was last summoned for the 2022 January camp.
As defending champions following a thrilling 3-2 defeat of Mexico in extra time of the inaugural championship match in 2021, the USMNT has two matches remaining to close out Group D. Currently in second place with four points and one behind El Salvador, the USA opens the window away to Grenada on March 24 at Kirani James Athletic Stadium in Saint George’s (8 p.m. ET; TNT, Universo, Peacock).
Three days later, the USA faces El Salvador at Exploria Stadium. That match will be broadcast live on TNT and Universo and streamed on Peacock. Coverage begins at 7 p.m., with kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
