  • Tonight’s Starting XI has an average age of 25 years, 360 days.

  • The Starting XI averages 17 caps.

  • Defender Reggie Cannon has experienced right hamstring soreness in the last 24 hours and is being held out as a precaution. His status is day-to-day.

  • Sebastian Lletget captains the USMNT for the first time tonight. The 28-year-old midfielder is the 12th different player to wear the armband under head coach Gregg Berhalter.

  • Ten of 11 starters hail from Major League Soccer, with right back Shaq Moore (Tenerife; Spain) as the lone foreign-based player.

  • Moore is one of four players making their USMNT debuts in official competition tonight, joining goalkeeper Matt Turner and defenders Miles Robinson and Sam Vines.

  • Turner (eligible to represent Lithuania) and Moore (eligible to represent Trinidad and Tobago) will both become officially cap-tied to the USMNT once the opening whistle blows tonight.

  • Moore earns his first USMNT appearance since playing in the 1-0 friendly defeat to Italy on Nov. 20, 2018 in Genk, Belgium.

  • Kellyn Acosta, Sebastian Lletget and Jackson Yueill were all part of the U.S. roster during last month’s Concacaf Nations League triumph.

  • Making his 17th Gold Cup appearance tonight, forward Gyasi Zardes moves past Kyle Beckerman and Pablo Mastroeni for sole possession of 10th on the USMNT’s all-time Gold Cup caps list.

  • The only starter to previously appear against Haiti, Zardes came on as a halftime substitute and assisted on Clint Dempsey’s goal two minutes later in a 1-0 Gold Cup group stage win on July 10, 2015 in Foxborough, Mass.

  • Walker Zimmerman earns his first start since the 1-0 win against Costa Rica on Feb. 1, 2020.

  • Zimmerman and Miles Robinson partner together in central defense for the first time tonight. It’s the 13th different central defensive pairing deployed under Gregg Berhalter.

  • Tonight’s match marks the second time the trio of Kellyn Acosta, Sebastian Lletget and Jackson Yueill will work together in midfield. The three previously lined up at the start of the USA’s 7-0 win against Trinidad and Tobago on Jan. 31, 2021 in Orlando.

  • Gianluca Busio, Matthew Hoppe, Donovan Pines and James Sands would earn their USMNT debuts should they enter the match tonight.

  • Four players beginning the match on the bench would become cap-tied to the United States should they play tonight against Haiti: George Bello (Nigeria), Gianluca Busio (Italy), Daryl Dike (Nigeria), Nicholas Gioacchini (Italy and Jamaica). 

  • A midfielder with Sporting KC, Busio would have the opportunity of making his USMNT debut in his home club stadium.

  • Meanwhile, Gioacchini would get to represent the U.S. just 17 miles from where he grew up in Overland Park, Kansas.

  • Teams are allowed five substitutions during the group stage of the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup.

  • The USA holds an even 6-6-5 record in 17 all-time matches against Haiti. Les Grenadiers are one of two Concacaf nations the USMNT does not have a winning record against.

  • The USA is 2-0-1 against Haiti in Gold Cup play.

  • The USMNT is 20-6-3 in 29 matches under Gregg Berhalter.
