In order to qualify for the Qatar World Cup tournament, the USA were tasked to contend with 7 other teams including Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, Jamaica, El Salvador and Honduras.
The USA were able to qualify for The World Cup, but it was far from an easy ride. The deciding factor for the USA was their goal difference of 11 compared to Costa Rica’s 5. This is something that Gregg Berhalter will be eager to address should they have any chance to progress deep into this competition.
Gregg has already lifted major trophies with the USA national football team, these being the CONCACAF Nations in 2019 and the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2021. He will be eager to add the World Cup to the USA’s major footballing achievements.
