Donovan looks set to earn 100th cap

[USA-ENGLAND ROSTER] Landon Donovan, who looks set to earn his 100th cap, headlines the 22-player roster named for the U.S. national team's game against England next Wednesday at Wembley Stadium.

Donovan is only one of three MLS players Coach Bob Bradley called up. The others are goalie Brad Guzan and midfielder Ricardo Clark.

Donovan and Clark are the only players who have appeared and started in all three of the USA's matches in 2008.

Eighteen players spent the last year with clubs abroad. Eight of them played for clubs in England.

Carlos Bocanegra, who scored in the 3-0 win at Poland in the USA's last game, leads a trio of Fulham players who dramatically staved off relegation by defeating Portsmouth on the road on the final match day of the English Premier League.  Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard is coming off another fine season in which his team secured a place in next year's UEFA Cup, and enters the camp having earned 11 shutouts in 28 career international appearances.

The U.S. team will begin gathering on May 22, with MLS players joining the group following their weekend matches.

Kickoff for the first of the USA's three summer friendlies is set for 8 p.m. local time (3 p.m. ET), and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN Classic and via tape delay on Galavision at 7 p.m. ET/PT.

More than 1,300 fans purchased tickets in the U.S. supporters section for the USA's second-ever trip to London.

USA ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS: Dominic Cervi (out of contract), Brad Guzan (Chivas USA), Tim Howard (Everton/ENG).
DEFENDERS: Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham/ENG), Dan Califf (FC Midtjylland/DEN), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96/GER), Jay DeMerit (Watford/ENG), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard Liege/BEL), Michael Orozco (San Luis/MEX), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock/GER), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United/ENG).
MIDFIELDERS: Freddy Adu (Benfica/POR), DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers/SCO), Michael Bradley (Heerenveen/NED), Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo), Benny Feilhaber (Derby County/ENG), Eddie Lewis (Derby County/ENG).
FORWARDS: Clint Dempsey (Fulham/ENG), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Nate Jaqua (SC Rheindorf Altach/AUT), Eddie Johnson (Fulham/ENG), Josh Wolff (1860 Munich/GER).
