LIVE: New-Look, Young USMNT Hosts Paraguay in Friendly

Follow along for live updates and highlights of key plays as the USMNT hosts Paraguay in a friendly in North Carolina.

Neither the U.S. men’s national team nor Paraguay qualified for the 2018 World Cup, but they’re continuing preparations to move forward and into the future, and they meet for a friendly at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, North Carolina, Tuesday night (7:30 p.m. ET; FS1, UniMas).

A young, new-look U.S. team debuts the nation’s new kits, while a number of players seek their senior national team debuts. Among them are Tim Weah, the PSG winger whose father was former great (and current Liberia president) George Weah, and Andrija Novakovich, who is in goal-scoring form for Dutch club Telstar.

Christian Pulisic was left behind with Dortmund facing a crucial stretch, but Tyler Adams, Cristian Roldan and Kenny Saief are among those available to interim manager Dave Sarachan in the midfield.

The last time the two nations played was in the Copa America Centenario group stage, with the USA winning 1-0 on a Clint Dempsey goal to advance to the knockout rounds.
