A somewhat surprising inclusion, Horvath wasn’t part of the squad during World Cup qualifying and he made a costly positioning error in his most recent US appearance, a 1-1 tie in El Salvador in June.

But Horvath has played every minute of the season for Luton in England’s second tier, and he does have a history with the USMNT: his penalty kick save on Mexico’s Andres Guardado in extra time of the 2021 CONCACAF Nations League final sealed the win for the USMNT against its biggest rival.
