Sands will join the United States ahead of the upcoming Gold Cup.
ANALYSIS
Sands has started every match for NYC FC this season, going a full 90 in all but one contest. Of late, he's moved to a center-back role, which could mean a return to the XI for Sebastien Ibeagha, though that could change over the next few weeks with Sands possibly set to miss five matches.
