China is headed to the United States to face the U.S. national team and two MLS clubs with a squad that will be without players from Shandong Luneng and Shanghai Shenhua.

China play the USA in an international friendly on Saturday and will meet the Los Angeles Galaxy on June 5 and Colorado Rapids five days later.

Shandong and Shanghai play in the East Asian Champions Cup June 7-13, ruling out players from those clubs, including star Zhi Zheng, who recently returned to Shandong after a loan spell at English club Charlton.

Coach Zhu Guanghu is using the trip to prepare for July's Asian Cup finals.

Goalkeepers: Zong Lei (Changchun Yatai), Yang Jun (Tianjin Teda);
Defenders: Xu Yunlong (Beijing Guo'an), Zhang Shuai (Beijing Guo'an), Zhang Baofeng (Changchun Yatai), Chen Dong (Dalian Shide), Zhai Yanpeng (Dalian Shide), Zhang Yaokun (Dalian Shide), Ji Mingyi (Dalian Shide), Xin Feng (Shenzhen Xiangxue), Sun Xiang (unattached);
Midfielders: Wang Dong (Changchun Yatai), Du Zhenyu (Changchun Yatai), Zhao Xuri (Dalian Shide), Cao Yang (Tianjin Teda), Hao Junmin (Tianjin Teda), Zheng Bin (FC Wuhan), Shao Jiayi (Energie Cottbus, Germany), Li Tie (unattached);
Strikers: Du Wenhui (Beijing Guo'an), Wang Peng (Dalian Shide), Qu Bo (Qingdao Zhongneng), Dong Fangzhuo (Manchester United, England).
