The US Soccer National Team 2022 World Cup Qualifying Schedule has been released following the official draw at FIFA House in Zurich, Switzerland, on Wednesday. The USMNT will open its 14-game Final Round World Cup Qualifying slate in June 2021 away to an undetermined opponent.
With six wins, five draws, three losses should get you in. There’s been chatter of what is the best way for the US to take this schedule. Many say the US can afford losses against Mexico and Costa Rica, twice or once, and get in with draws and wins.
The U.S. could potentially play Trinidad and Tobago away in their opening match of the Final Round of 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying, depending on the results in the earlier rounds. Trinidad and Tobago defeated the USMNT in their final match of qualifying in October of 2017 to keep the U.S. from missing the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Trinidad and Tobago, the top seed in Group F, would need to win their group and then win the playoff against the winner of Group A.
Final match dates, times and venues will be confirmed at a later date.
