FOOTBALL Preview: U.S. men face Peru in Houston in latest Gold Cup tune-up

The fourth game of the Gregg Berhalter Era for U.S. men’s soccer comes tonight in Houston against Chile, which also failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Under Berhalter, the U.S. men have logged wins against Panama (3-0), Costa Rica (2-0) and Ecuador (1-0) last Thursday. The six goals have been scored by six different players.

Even with the availability of American players from European teams for the two games this month, 12 of the 22 players available tonight will have appeared in nine of fewer games for the U.S.

Chile and the U.S. have met 10 times previously and the South Americans hold a 5-3-2 edge in the all-time series. The last meeting was in 2015, a 3-2 loss in Rancagua (CHI).

Tonight’s game will start at 7:55 p.m. Eastern time and be shown on ESPN2, UniMas and UDN.

There are no further U.S. friendlies scheduled after this game and before the U.S. heads into the CONCACAF Gold Cup, beginning for the U.S. on 18 June.
