U.S. national team head coach Bob Bradley has named the 19 players -- 16 European-based players and three MLS players -- who will travel to face Sweden next Wednesday in Gothenburg (TV: Fox Soccer Channel, live, 2:30 pm ET; Galavision -- East Coast: live, 2:30 ET; West Coast, delay, 2:30 pm PT).

"We are happy to be able to see so many of our foreign-based players in action and to put them in another challenging environment," said Bradley, who is 10-3-1 in 2007 and making his first trip to Europe with the team. "We are continuing to develop our team as World Cup qualifying approaches, and this group will certainly play a large role in that process. Sweden is bringing a very competitive roster, so it should be a great match."

The U.S. roster includes 12 players from the squad that captured the 2007 Gold Cup and qualified the United States for the 2009 Confederations Cup in South Africa.

They include three MLS players: Los Angeles Galaxy forward Landon Donovan, who led the U.S. with four goals in the Gold Cup, Colorado Rapids midfielder Pablo Mastroeni who was named to the Gold Cup Best XI, and Chivas USA left back Jonathan Bernstein.

Of the European-based players, Hannover 96 vice-captain Steve Cherundolo and Reading midfielder Bobby Convey return after having missed the USA's summer tournaments with injuries, while Reading goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann and 1860 Munich striker Josh Wolff are both making their first trip with the U.S. since the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

U-20 standout Sal Zizzo, who recently signed with Hannover 96, is the lone uncapped player. Zizzo and Michael Bradley are the lone representatives from the 2007 U-20 World Cup team.

The USA will face a veteran Swedish team with 11 player holding 30 or more caps.
