The US men’s national team begin their journey in search of a third consecutive CONCACAF Nations League title as they face Trinidad and Tobago in the quarterfinals.
Having secured their previous title by defeating Canada 2-0 in the final, the United States earned a pre-seeded position in this competition, ensuring automatic qualification to this stage. Meanwhile, Trinidad and Tobago, despite a 5-3 loss to Curacao in their final group stage match, secured the second spot in Group A to reach the last eight.
