December 2, 2020 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - San Jose Earthquakes News Release

SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Jackson Yueill has been added by U.S. Men's National Team head coach Gregg Berhalter to the training camp roster. The USMNT will host El Salvador on Dec. 9 at Inter Miami CF Stadium in Ft. Lauderdale. Kickoff for the USMNT's first match at the home of Inter Miami CF is set for 4:30 p.m. PT, and the match will be broadcast live on an ESPN Network, UniMás and TUDN.

Yueill, 23, has made seven prior appearance for the senior National Team, including starts in three of the four matches that led to the USA finishing first in Concacaf Nations League Group A last year. He went 90 minutes in the USA's only other domestic match this year, a 1-0 win against Costa Rica on Feb. 1 in Carson, Calif.

Yueill was part of the U-23 MNT that traveled to Mexico for the Concacaf Men's Olympic Qualifying Championship last March before the tournament was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
