Team news & rosters

|Defenders||Cannon, Vines, Pines, Robinson, Sands, Moore, Bello, Kessler|
|Midfielders||Busio, Roldan, Yueill, Lletget, Williamson, Acosta|
|Forwards||Arriola, Gioacchini, Zardes, Dike, Hoppe, Lewis, Cowell|
Walker Zimmerman withdrew from the squad with an injury ahead of the quarter-finals, with Henry Kessler called up as his replacement, while Cade Cowell joined too.
Gregg Berhalter is not expected to deviate too much, if at all, from the team that defeated Jamaica, but he may have a decision to make over whether to start Cristian Roldan and Gyasi Zardes, who had a positive impact from the bench.
Predicted USMNT starting XI: Turner, Vines, Robinson, Sands, Moore, Acosta, Lletget, Roldan, Arriola, Hoppe, Zardes.
|Goalkeepers||Al Sheeb, Y. Hassan, Barsham|
|Defenders||Ro-Ro, A. Hassan, Salman, Suhail, Kheder, Ahmed, Al-Rawi, Khoukhi|
|Midfielders||Hatem, Waad, Boudiaf, Al-Ahrak, Madibo|
|Forwards||Afif, Alaaeldin, Muntari, Al-Haydos, Mohammed, Abdurisag, Ali|
Almoez Ali is the tournament's leading scorer with four goals and struck twice in the quarter-final win over El Salvador, so the U.S. will have to keep a close eye on him.
Felix Sanchez will also look to the experience of Hassan Al-Haydos, while Abdulaziz has chipped in with three goals in the tournament.
Predicted Qatar starting XI: Barsham, Al-Rawi, Khoukhi, A. Hassan, Ro-Ro, Ahmed, Al-Haydos, Boudiaf, Hatem, Afif, Ali.
