McKennie, Steffen headline USMNT squad for Jamaica friendly

first_imgManchester City-bound goalkeeper Zack Steffen and Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie headline the 28-man squad Gregg Berhalter is calling in for Wednesday’s friendly against Jamaica at Audi Field. With the deadline to submit his 23-man Gold Cup roster set for Wednesday evening, Berhalter will look to make his final decisions on roster spots in the coming days. Two players not on the 28-man roster, but who are expected to be part of the Gold Cup squad, are Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams. Those two are on break after the conclusion of their Bundesliga campaigns, but are expected to join up with the U.S. team once the final Gold Cup squad is set. New York Red Bulls defender Aaron Long is on the roster for the Jamaica friendly despite the hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined for two weeks. Berhalter will have a chance this week to determine whether Long can recover in time to be a factor for the Gold Cup, or if he will wind up joining John Brooks and DeAndre Yedlin on the list of injured U.S. defenders who will miss the summer tournament.   Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Another player who is set to miss the Gold Cup is Club Brugge goalkeeper Ethan Horvath, who is recovering from a finger injury and wasn’t available for selection. His absence will open up a goalkeeper spot alongside Steffen and Sean Johnson at the Gold Cup, with LAFC’s Tyler Miller and Atlanta United’s Brad Guzan the contenders for that spot. The squad also features some new faces in Derby County midfielder Duane Holmes, and New Zealand-born midfielder Tyler Boyd, who recently finalized a change of association with FIFA to play for the United States. The USMNT will face Jamaica before taking on Venezuela in Cincinnati on June 9 in the final pre-Gold Cup tuneup. The Americans open their 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup on June 18 against Guyana in Minnesota. Here is the USMNT roster for the friendly against Jamaica: GOALKEEPERS: Sean Johnson (New York City FC), Tyler Miller (LAFC), Zack Steffen (Columbus Crew SC) DEFENDERS: Cameron Carter-Vickers (Tottenham Hotspur/ENG), Omar Gonzalez (Club Atlas/MEX), Nick Lima (San Jose Earthquakes), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Daniel Lovitz (Montreal Impact), Matt Miazga (Chelsea/ENG), Tim Ream (Fulham/ENG), Antonee Robinson (Everton/ENG), Walker Zimmerman (LAFC) MIDFIELDERS: Michael Bradley (Toronto FC/CAN), Duane Holmes (Derby County/ENG), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Weston McKennie (Schalke/GER), Djordje Mihailovic (Chicago Fire), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders FC), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew SC); Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes) FORWARD: Jonathan Amon (Nordsjælland/DEN), Jozy Altidore (Toronto FC/CAN), Paul Arriola (D.C.

The Meizu flagship is also rumoured to get a Snapdragon 855 chipset. advertisement Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiMarch 4, 2019UPDATED: March 5, 2019 08:59 IST HIGHLIGHTSMeizu will employ the 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor that was recently put to use in the Redmi Note 7 Pro.The camera will also support Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).The phone will also feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.Meizu has been teasing a new smartphone to rival the OnePlus 6T in the Indian market. Expected to be called the Meizu 16s, the premium smartphone will be positioned to challenge OnePlus 6T with a new Snapdragon 855 chipset. Meizu has been teasing the handset’s main features for a while, revealing some important details such as the camera, display, fingerprint sensor and the thickness of the phone. Now, Meizu’s founder and former CEO Huang Zhang has confirmed another detail about the Meizu 16s with regards to the camera.In a community post, Huang Zhang said that the Meizu 16s will be getting a 48-megapixel camera at the rear. However, instead of using a standard Samsung sensor, Meizu will employ the Sony IMX586 sensor that was recently put to use in the Redmi Note 7 Pro. The camera will also support Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Huang Zhang hasn’t said anything about whether the Meizu 16s will get a dual camera setup or will be contended with a single camera setup.So far, the Meizu 16s is shaping up to be a pretty strong contender to the OnePlus 6T. Meizu has teased about a fullscreen display with very thin bezels all around. The phone won’t feature a notch on the top – the camera will sit n the very slim forehead along with the earpiece and other sensors. The display will also feature an in-display fingerprint scanner similar to the OnePlus 6T. Meizu states that the phone will be 8.2mm thick.Leaks have so far stated that Meizu will unveil the 16s with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 chipset. If this is true, then the Meizu 16s could be the first smartphone in India to debut the Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Samsung Galaxy S10 in India gets the Exynos 9280 chipset, not the Snapdragon 855. The teasers also suggest that Meizu 16s will come with 8GB RAM. It is speculated that the phone will ship with Meizu’s custom Flyme Os based on Android Pie.advertisementThe Meizu 16s is expected to be priced around Rs 40,000 – the exact price point in which the OnePlus 6T sits right now. That could make the Meizu 16s a better choice over the OnePlus 6T as it comes with the latest hardware. In fact, no other manufacturer in India is supposed to unveil a smartphone with a Snapdragon 855 chipset until May, when OnePlus is expected to launch the OnePlus 7.ALSO READ | Meizu teases its OnePlus 6T killer for India, rumoured to sport Snapdragon 855 chipsetALSO READ | Meizu 16th Quick Review: An Android flagship that puts style upfrontALSO READ | Meizu Zero is the world’s first holeless smartphone Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
