Djordje Mihailovic replaces Tim Weah on USMNT roster

U.S. men’s national team interim head coach Anthony Hudson has already been forced to make one roster change ahead of the resumption of Concacaf Nations League action.

Djordje Mihailovic has been added to the USMNT roster for the upcoming matches against Grenada and El Salvador, replacing forward Timothy Weah. Weah entered concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in Saturday’s 2-0 Ligue 1 victory for Lille.

The 23-year-old Weah has made 22 appearances for Lille this season, and has earned 29 caps with the USMNT.

Mihailovic joined Dutch Eredivisie side AZ Alkmaar in January and has proceeded to score one goal and add one assist in nine senior appearances. The 24-year-old previously played in MLS with CF Montreal and the Chicago Fire before moving to Europe.

Mihailovic has earned six caps for the USMNT, scoring on his international debut in January 2019. His last USMNT appearance came in December 2020 during a 6-0 friendly win over El Salvador.

The USMNT claimed four points out of a possible six so far in Nations League play, defeating Grenada 5-0 and tying El Salvador 1-1. Hudson’s squad will visit Grenada on Friday, March 24 before hosting El Salvador at Exploria Stadium on March 27.
