United States men's national team manager Gregg Berhalter will release the team's World Cup squad on Wednesday in an event in New York City. The 26-man roster will travel to Qatar for the tournament, which begins on Nov. 20. The Empire State Building will feature red, white and blue lights on Wednesday night to celebrate the national team's participation in the competition -- the squad's first since 2014. 

The event will air live on ESPN+ and ESPN2 at 5 p.m. ET and take place at Brooklyn Steel in the city. The United States will face Wales on Nov. 21, England on Nov. 25 and Iran on Nov. 29. The match against England will take place the day after Thanksgiving. You can check out the full World Cup schedule here.

Sources have told CBS Sports that Berhalter has most of the team made up but even as late as Monday night there were still players waiting to hear if they would be included or not. They are far from easy choices with serious concerns at center back and at striker, but our Chuck Booth gave a crack at projecting the roster just before the announcement.

Due to the tournament taking place in the middle of the club season, squads will now consist of 26 players as opposed to 23. Each team privately submitted a pre-list consisting of 35 to 55 players in October and they will have until Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. ET to reveal the full 26-man squad.
