Bradley Names First U.S. Camp

MOST COMMENTED

Interim U.S. coach Bob Bradley named a 29-man squad for the national team's first international match since the World Cup on Jan. 20. Twenty-eight of the 29 are from Major League Soccer. Bradley named 10 uncapped players to his first U.S. training camp as coach, including 2006 rookies Jonathan Bornstein and Sacha Kljestan, who played for him at Chivas USA.  FC Nordsjælland defender Heath Pearce is the lone European-based player to receive a call-up. Landon Donovan is the most-capped player on the squad, with 84 appearances. Clint Dempsey, Pablo Mastroeni, Taylor Twellman, and Jimmy Conrad are among the other old-standbys. (Teenagers Freddy Adu and Jozy Altidore are with the U.S. U-20s.) In an interview, Bradley spoke at length with USA Today about his appointment as interim coach. He discussed a conversation he had recently with Bruce Arena, his former boss, who called him the right man for the job. "That meant a great deal to me," Bradley said, adding: "The ability to pick up the phone and bounce some things off of him is an advantage and something I will always use." He stated firmly that Adu, Altidore and Heerenveen's Michael Bradley, his son, would all remain with the U.S. under-20 team, which begins qualifying in Panama next month for the under-20 world championship in Canada this summer. Interestingly, Bradley said when asked about last summer's World Cup "I don't think anything went wrong...There are always factors in the game that you can't control: a call, a bounce, a great play."
