[USA] MLS rookies Tim Ream, Juan Agudelo and Teal Bunbury are among five players earning their first call-ups to the U.,S. national team for the 2010 Nelson Mandela Challenge on Nov. 17 in Cape Town (TV: ESPN2, Galavision, 2 pm ET).

Ream, a defender out of Saint Louis University, was a finalist for the 2010 MLS Rookie of the Year award.

Agudelo and Gale Agbossoumonde will join the U.S. U-20s after the trip for a mini-tournament against Mexico and Canada in Kennesaw, Ga.

Bunbury's father, Alex, played for Canada for many years, but Teal is eligible to play for the USA or Canada.

Norwegian-American Mikkel Diskerud (Stabaek) also earned his first call-up.

Of the five members of the U.S. World Cup team Bob Bradley has called up, only Jonathan Bornstein and Robbie Findley played in the World Cup.

Bornstein is headed to Tigres in Mexico from Chivas USA in January, while Findley could leave Real Salt Lake as a free agent.

U.S. ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Dominic Cervi (Celtic), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)
DEFENDERS (7): Gale Agbossoumonde (free agent), Nat Borchers (Real Salt Lake), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Eric Lichaj (Aston Villa), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Alejandro Bedoya (Orebro), Brian Carroll (Columbus Crew), Mikkel Diskerud (Stabaek), Eddie Gaven (Columbus Crew), Logan Pause (Chicago Fire), Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew)
FORWARDS (3): Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls), Teal Bunbury (Kansas City Wizards), Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake)

    Juan Agudelo looked exceptional in the Red Bulls final match against San Jose. I cannot wait to see him play for our USA National Team against South Africa. He has pace, superb dribbling control, creativity, game intelligence and he is only 19 years of age.

    It will be great to see T. Ream finally get his chance to prove himself. I think he'll end-up being a major player for the USMNT as a DB and realisticly should have won Rookie of the yr. I hope the best for the Men's National in the future.

    i also very much like that timmy ream has been called up. as much as bradley has shaken things up and stepped out of his normal routine i still would have liked to see geoff cameron. anyone else impressed with his play this year? on an interesting side note: davide somma who is earning his first callup to the south african squad after a great start to the season with leeds, lived in the US for many years and is eligible to play for us. should have jumped on that while we had the chance
