It's a new year and a new calendar for international soccer. In 2024, we'll see the Olympic Games in Paris and Copa América, which will be held on American soil and open at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

While January remains the MLS offseason for Atlanta United, three of the club's players will be staying active with their national teams: Thiago Almada, Edwin Mosquera and Caleb Wiley.
