Altidore, Adu in USA roster for South Africa game
November 12th, 2007 7AM



[ROSTER] Josmer Altidore, who turned 18 last week, has a chance to make his first full national team appearance in the USA's Nov. 17 friendly in South Africa. He is among six MLS players called up by Coach Bob Bradley for the Nelson Mandela Challenge Cup game. Altidore scored nine goals for the New York Red Bulls in the 2007 MLS season. Also on the roster is Freddy Adu, who starred with Altidore on the USA's 2007 U-20 World Cup team that reached the quarterfinals last summer. Landon Donovan is the most capped (96) player on the roster and is aiming to break the all-time national team scoring record.

The 25-year-old Donovan is tied with Eric Wynalda on 34 career U.S. goals.
