FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Defender John Brooks and defender DeAndre Yedlin will be with the U.S. national team for next month's playoff against Mexico for a berth in the 2017 Confederations Cup rather than with the under-23 team at Olympic qualifying.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Monday he was not sure whether Stanford forward Jordan Morris would be with the national team or the under-23s.

The Americans play Oct. 10 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The winner will represent North and Central America and the Caribbean in the Confederations Cup.

CONCACAF's Olympic qualifying semifinals are the same night at Sandy, Utah. The two winners advance to next year's tournament in Rio de Janeiro, where each nation can use three players over the age limit. The semifinal losers then meet, and the third-place team advances to a playoff against Colombia for another berth.
