In 2018 World Cup qualifying, the goal of the Americans is to finish among the top three in its region to clinch an automatic berth to the World Cup in Russia 2018.

The match is the opener of the 10-game final round of qualifying in the North and Central American and Caribbean region.

Defender Geoff Cameron, midfielder Kyle Beckerman and forward Chris Wondolowski will miss the United States’ World Cup qualifiers against Mexico and Costa Rica because of injuries, and Tim Howard has regained the No. 1 goalkeeper’s job.

Howard, now 37, took a year off from the national team following the World Cup, then late in 2015 and alternated with Brad Guzan.

Guzan started at this year’s Copa America and while Howard has been a regular since leaving Everton to join Major League Soccer’s Colorado team this summer, the 32-year-old Guzan has not appeared with Middlesbrough in England’s Premier League since Aug. 28.

“He thought he would be No. 1 there. He is not,” Klinsmann said during Facebook Live interview, adding that Howard “is back to No. 1.”

Cameron was paired with John Brooks in central defense during this year’s Copa America but has missed Stoke’s last two Premier League games after hyperextending a knee against Hull on Oct. 22.

“It is just not healing in time. It is a bummer,” said Klinsmann, who was considering moving Cameron into a defensive midfield role.

Omar Gonzalez, Matt Besler, Steve Birnbaum and Michael Orozco are the candidates to replace Cameron at central defender.

Beckerman and Wondolowski play for Major League Soccer teams whose seasons are over, and the nature of their injuries was not clear. Klinsmann went to Colorado on Sunday to personally watch Jermaine Jones and selected the 35-year-old Rapids midfielder, who was sidelined from July 4 until Oct. 23 because of a knee injury.

“Other teams simply fear him,” Klinsmann said.

Twenty-six players will be at a training camp ahead of Friday’s game against Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, the Americans’ opener in the 10-match final round of qualifying in the North and Central American and Caribbean region. Among them is 18-year-old defender Cameron-Carter Vickers, who could make his U.S. debut. He played his first game for Tottenham in the League Cup on Sept. 21.

The U.S. has beaten Mexico 2-0 in four consecutive home qualifiers, all in Columbus, where the Americans are 8-0-3. After playing El Tri, the U.S. is at Costa Rica on Nov. 15.
