SAN JOSE, Calif. – San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski and midfielder Jackson Yueill are among 25 players selected to represent the United States Men’s National Team in a friendly vs. Trinidad and Tobago on January 31 in Orlando, Fla. The match kicks off at 4 p.m. PT on FS1, UniMás and TUDN.
The group was selected from an initial list of 12 senior MNT players and 26 U-23 players that began training on Jan. 9 at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Both Marcinkowski and Yueill were with the U-23s along with 17-year-old Quakes forward Cade Cowell, who will return to San Jose.
Marcinkowski, 23, has competed extensively at the youth national team level and has also received three prior senior national team call-ups (May 2019, January 2020, December 2020). He has appeared in all eight training camps for the U-23s this cycle, including the team’s joint camp with the USMNT in 2019. Marcinkowski also competed at the 2017 Concacaf U-20 Championship and the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup. During the 2020 MLS season, Marcinkowski made 11 starts, recorded four shutouts and earned a 6-3-2 record.
Yueill, 23, has made eight prior appearances for the senior national team as well as two appearances for the U-23s. Yueill started in three of the four matches that led to the USA finishing first in Concacaf Nations League Group A in 2019. Yueill was also part of the U-23 team that traveled to Mexico for the Concacaf Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship last March before the tournament was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak. Named the Quakes’ Young Player of the Year in both 2019 and 2020, Yueill has missed just four total regular season matches over the last two seasons and played a team-high 1,861 minutes in 2020.
