USMNT vs. Slovenia live stream: USA prediction, TV channel, how to watch online, start time, news, odds

It’s time for the USMNT to kick off a busy 2024 that will see them compete in the Concacaf Nations League semifinals, Copa America and the Olympic Games as Gregg Berhalter has called in a young domestic roster to face Slovenia. January camp is a time where mainly players based in Major League Soccer or those who are out of favor with their clubs get a chance to experience a full national team camp where they can see what they have to work toward and what the future could hold if they break in to become regular members of the USMNT.

Storylines

USMNT: Miles Robinson will be expected to anchor a young USMNT defense as he’s the most capped player in this camp. Nine members of the 2022 World Cup squad appeared in January camps such as this one so there is a clear goal for these players to work for but with 16 members of the squad being age eligible for the Olympics, that will likely be their next stepping stone.

Slovenia: Slovenia will see 16 players seeking their first cap as they’ll also have a mostly domestic based roster due to the league being on winter break right now. There is also a representative from New York City FC in MLS, defender Mitja Ilenic. Slovenia has played the USMNT a few times now with a 1-0-1 record.
