Lennon received his first call up since January of 2018. The current Atlanta United right-back is listed as a defender on the USMNT website and will hope to receive his first cap on the international stage. Lennon enters the camp has had a breakout season with Atlanta United following a 2021 campaign that saw him play in 32 from a possible 34 including 30 starts. Furthermore, Lennon was tied for seventh in MLS in key passes while adding six assists to his name.

Players will begin reporting for camp as early as this Sunday, December 5th.
