[MLS] A squad of 19 MLS players left for Spain Monday to play three friendlies against the reserve teams of La Liga clubs. FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman is in charge of the squad, made up of Generation adidas players and recent GA graduates, as well as homegrown products. Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo and midfielder Tony Tchani are among the players representing 12 MLS teams.

San Jose rookie defender Ike Opara and a former Red Bull, Jeremy Hall, are the only two backliners listed on the 19-man roster, and Hall has played a lot of midfield in his two MLS seasons.

Recent GA graduates Baggio Husidic (Chicago), goalie Stefan Frei (Toronto), midfielder Brek Shea (FC Dallas), and Hall supplement the current GA group that includes three Philadelphia players picked in the first round of last January’s SuperDraft: forwards Danny Mwanga and Jack McInerney and midfielder Amobi Okugo.

The MLS squad is scheduled to play Real Madrid Thursday, Rayo Vallecano next Tuesday, and Atletico Madrid next Wednesday.

Goalkeepers -- Stefan Frei (Toronto FC), Sean Johnson (Chicago).
Defenders -- Jeremy Hall (Portland), Ike Opara (San Jose).
Midfielders -- Corben Bone (Chicago), Danny Cruz (Houston), Dilly Duka (Columbus), Luis Gil (RSL), Baggio Husidic (Chicago), Amobi Okugo (Philadelphia), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Tony Tchani (New York).
Forwards -- Juan Agudelo (New York), Tristan Bowen (Los Angeles), Teal Bunbury (Sporting Kansas City), Peri Marosevic (FCD), Jack McInerney (Philadelphia), Danny Mwanga (Philadelphia), Andrew Wiedeman (FC Dallas).
Head coach: Schellas Hyndman (FC Dallas).
