Forward and winger Christian Pulisic will wear No. 10 for the United States at the World Cup and goalkeeper Matt Turner will wear No. 1.

The U.S. team announced jersey numbers Monday, a week before the Americans play Wales at Al Rayyan, Qatar, in their first World Cup match since 2014. DeAndre Yedlin, the only holdover from the roster eight years ago, will wear No. 22 instead of No. 2.

 

Twenty-two of the 26 players were in Qatar ahead of Monday's training, with Sergiño Dest, Weston McKennie, Tim Weah and Haji Wright due later in the day following scheduled Sunday league matches with their European clubs.

The other jersey numbers: Walker Zimmerman No. 3, Tyler Adams No. 4, Antonee Robinson No. 5, Yunus Musah No. 6, Gio Reyna No. 7, McKennie No. 8, Jesús Ferreira No. 9, Brenden Aaronson No. 11, Ethan Horvath No. 12, Tim Ream No. 13, Luca de la Torre No. 14, Aaron Long No. 15, Jordan Morris No 16, Cristian Roldan No. 17, Shaq Moore No. 18, Wright No. 19, Cameron Carter-Vickers No. 20, Weah No. 21, Kellyn Acosta No. 23, Josh Sargent No. 24, Sean Johnson No. 25 and Joe Scally No. 26.
