Chelsea midfielder Christian Pulisic leads a group of European-based players heading the US men's national soccer team 23-man roster that coach Greg Berhalter called in Monday for next week's conclusion of the CONCACAF Nations League.

The US squad will be in Switzerland on Sunday to play a friendly against the Swiss before traveling to Denver for a Nations League semifinal against Honduras on Thursday, June 3.

Pulisic and Manchester City goalkeeper Zack Steffen will not be with the U.S. team Sunday in St. Gallen, Switzerland, since they will be in Portugal facing each other in Saturday's UEFA Champions League final.

Both players are expected to join the USMNT for the match against Honduras, with the winner advancing to the final on Sunday, June 6. Mexico faces Costa Rica in the other semifinal in Denver, following the U.S.-Honduras game.

"We are excited to gather this group together as we compete to win the Nations League trophy," Berhalter said. "It's been a great year for our player pool and the unprecedented successes of winning multiple league and cup championships. Our focus now becomes continuing this success with the National Team."

USMNT Roster for CONCACAF Nations League:

GOALKEEPERS: Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge), David Ochoa (Real Salt Lake), Zack Steffen (Manchester City).

DEFENDERS: John Brooks (Wolfsburg), Reggie Cannon (Boavista), Sergino Dest (Barcelona), Mark McKenzie (Genk), Matt Miazga (Anderlecht), Tim Ream (Fulham), Antonee Robinson (Fulham), DeAndre Yedlin (Galatasaray).

MIDFIELDERS: Kellyn Acosta (Colorado Rapids), Tyler Adams (RB Leipzig), Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Weston McKennie (Juventus), Yunus Musah (Valencia), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes).

FORWARDS: Brenden Aaronson (Red Bull Salzburg), Christian Pulisic (Chelsea), Gio Reyna (Borussia Dortmund), Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen), Jordan Siebatcheu (Young Boys), Tim Weah (Lille).
