June 6, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - San Jose Earthquakes News Release

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Earthquakes defender Nick Lima is one of 23 players selected by head coach Gregg Berhalter to represent the United States at the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup.

Lima, 24, signed a Homegrown Player contract with the Earthquakes ahead of the 2017 season and was a finalist for the MLS Rookie of the Year award in his debut campaign. He has made 68 total appearances for San Jose, tallying five goals and three assists. Lima made his USMNT debut on Jan. 27, 2019 against Panama, earning Man of the Match honors. He has since made two additional appearances, including in yesterday's friendly against Jamaica.

The USMNT heads to Cincinnati for a tournament tune-up against Venezuela on June 9 at Nippert Stadium. Kickoff for the USA's first visit to the Queen City is set for 11 a.m. PT, and the match will be broadcast live on FOX, UniMas and UDN. Fans can also follow along via U.S. Soccer's official Facebook, Twitter (@USMNT) and Instagram (@USMNT) accounts.

The MNT will begin its quest for a record-tying seventh confederation title when they face Guyana, Trinidad & Tobago and Panama in Group D of the 15th edition of the Gold Cup. The USA kicks off the tournament with its first trip to Minnesota and first meeting against Guyana on Tuesday, June 18 at Allianz Field in Saint Paul, Minn., a venue that has already set the fastest record for a sell-out in tournament history.

Following that match, the U.S. moves east to face Trinidad & Tobago on Saturday, June 22 at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland before closing group play against Panama on Wednesday, June 26 at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kan.
