The United States Men’s National Team starts defense of its title on Friday when it hosts Grenada in a 2022-23 Nations League match at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas. The USMNT won the inaugural tournament with a 3-2 extra-time victory against Mexico last summer in Denver. Now it has its sights set on the World Cup in November, and the Americans are running out of games to prepare. After this game and Tuesday’s rematch, they are expected to have two friendly matches in September in Europe against foes that haven’t been announced. Team USA played two friendlies over the past week, beating Morocco 3-0 last Wednesday and playing to a scoreless draw with Uruguay on Monday. Grenada took one point from its first two Nations League matches, falling 3-1 on the road against El Salvador on Saturday before playing to a 2-2 draw in the rematch at home on Tuesday.
Kickoff is set for 10 p.m. ET. United States is a -6000 favorite (risk $6,000 to win $100) on the 90-minute money line in the latest Grenada vs. USMNT odds.

Why you should back Team USA
The USMNT has high hopes for this year’s World Cup behind a team featuring Christian Pulisic, Weston McKennie and Brenden Aaronson, among others. The team has quality depth, with Paul Arriola, Timothy Weah and Jordan Morris also among the attacking options. No matter the choices made by manager Gregg Berhalter, the team should get plenty of chances against a Grenada team that is 0-2-8 in its past 10 games, allowing 23 goals and scoring six in that time.
Every player on the field for the Stars and Stripes will be trying to get Berhalter’s attention to earn a prominent spot for the World Cup. The team has had some trouble scoring at times, so Pulisic (21 international goals), McKennie (nine), Arriola (nine) and the rest will be trying to gain momentum. The defense has been solid, with Walker Zimmerman and Aaron Long anchoring the middle for the past two games. The USMNT is 22-3-0 in its past 25 matches on home soil.
Why you should back Grenada
Grenada started to find its rhythm in the past two games after a shaky start to 2022. They went 0-1-2 in three friendlies before kicking off this Nations League campaign, but they scored three goals in the two matches with El Salvador. Jamal Charles, Alexander McQueen and Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong were the goal-scorers. Charles is the top international scorer on the team with 14 goals in 28 matches, tied for third-most in the national team’s history.
Charles scored six goals in six matches during the last Nations League run to earn Grenada its League A spot. He is a big target on set pieces and thrives on scooping up loose balls. Grenada also has a strong back line that is led by captain Tyrone Sterling and Benjamin Ettienne on the outside, with Kayden Harrack and A.J. Paterson in the middle. Etienne, 19, and 18-year-old Harrack have bright futures with the team, and Sterling’s impact is his leadership and versatility.
