The United States men's national team will be without Christian Pulisic and Michael Bradley for its upcoming Nations League scuffles with Canada and Cuba, head coach Gregg Berhalter announced Monday.

Pulisic scored his fifth goal in his last three Premier League outings for Chelsea on Saturday but suffered a hip issue during the 2-0 win. Bradley is carrying an injury to his right ankle following Toronto FC's MLS Cup final loss to the Seattle Sounders on Sunday.

USMNT's under-fire coach was able to call Seattle pair Jordan Morris and Cristian Roldan into the international fold following their side's 3-1 win over TFC.

"Advancing to the knockout phase is our priority, and that starts by getting a win against Canada," Berhalter said. "We will be ready to play, the team is looking forward to competing in front of our fans.

"Orlando has been a great venue for the national team, and the support of our fans makes a big difference."

Canada registered a historic 2-0 victory over the United States in last month's Nations League match in Toronto. The USMNT must beat both Group A leader Canada and Cuba while overcoming a three-goal swing in the former's favor to punch its ticket to the knockout round of the inaugural 2019-20 Nations League campaign.

Here is the squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan (Atlanta United), Sean Johnson (New York City FC), Matt Turner (New England Revolution)

Defenders: John Brooks (Wolfsburg), Reggie Cannon (FC Dallas), Sergino Dest (Ajax), Nick Lima (San Jose Earthquakes), Aaron Long (New York Red Bulls), Daniel Lovitz (Montreal Impact), Tim Ream (Fulham), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United), Walker Zimmerman (Los Angeles FC)

Midfielders: Sebastian Lletget (LA Galaxy), Weston McKennie (Schalke), Alfredo Morales (Fortuna Dusseldorf), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew), Jackson Yueill (San Jose Earthquakes)

Forwards: Paul Arriola (D.C. United), Tyler Boyd (Besiktas), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders), Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen), Gyasi Zardes (Columbus Crew)
