[U.S. MEN] Among the 24 players U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley called up for the upcoming friendlies against Argentina and Paraguay are three Americans who were raised in Europe, including 20-year-old defender Timothy Chandler, who has been sensational for German club Nuremberg since joining its first team.

Also getting their first callups are MSV Duisburg goalkeeper David Yelldell and Norwich City defender Zak Whitbread. The latter represented the United States at the 2003 U-20 World Cup, starting every match and scoring against Germany.

The 24 players will train in Cary, N.C., ahead of a pair of international friendlies against Argentina March 26 at New Meadowlands Stadium and Paraguay three days later at at LP Field in Nashville.
 
"This is an important opportunity to get our core group together along with some relatively newer faces as we consider the roster decisions for the Gold Cup this summer," said Bradley. "We have not had these players together for quite some time, so this is a great chance to get in a solid week of training and then face two quality opponents in Argentina and Paraguay."
 
The New York Red Bulls are the only team to send two players to the training camp, the young duo of Juan Agudelo and Tim Ream joining Landon Donovan (Los Angeles) and Jay DeMerit (Vancouver) in representing Major League Soccer.

U.S. ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS (3):Marcus Hahnemann (Wolves), Tim Howard (Everton), David Yelldell (Duisburg)
DEFENDERS (9):Carlos Bocanegra (Saint-Etienne), Jonathan Bornstein (Tigres), Timothy Chandler (Nuremberg), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Jay DeMerit (Vancouver Whitecaps), Oguchi Onyewu (FC Twente), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United), Zak Whitbread (Norwich City)
MIDFIELDERS (9):Michael Bradley (Aston Villa), Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Mikkel Diskeruud (Stabaek), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus), Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers), Jermaine Jones (Blackburn Rovers), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht)
FORWARDS (3): Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls), Jozy Altidore (Bursaspor), Edson Buddle (FC Ingolstadt)

    I like seeing several young players being added to our national team roster. Preparations for the 2014 World Cup has begun. Juan Audelo, Jozy Altidore, Timothy Chandler, Zak Whitbread, Mikkel Diskeruud and Tim Ream are all worth looking at many more times. I will miss not seeing Teal Bunbury, Eric Lichaj, Jose Torres, Alejandro Bedoya & Charlie Davies. Can Landon Donovan make it to one more World Cup? He has the best possibility of all our veterans due to his career fitness habits. I have not seen any goalkeepers who can replace Tim Howard & Marcus Hahnemann. Carlos Bocanegra, Jay DeMerit, Steve Cherudolo & Oguchi Onyewu are most likely past their prime as much as they have been key players. Our midfield will be a question mark as age will play a factor by 2014. Michael Bradley, Maurice Edu, Sacha Kljestan & Stuart Holden will be there. Three years into the future take a toll on Clint Dempsey & Jermaine Jones? We are still missing a great midfield leader.

    Time for Bradley to give some fresh faces adequate time on the pitch. Also, it's time for Bradley to leave his son off the pitch and figure out if his absence makes a difference. Will these things happen this month, I'm not holding my breath.

    Same song, umpteenth verse, could get better but will get worse . . . Team Bradley needs to be gone . . .

    <rolls eyes> For a guy with a anti-latino bias, Bradley sure gave Agudelo his shot quickly.

    Great.. they are going to the camp, but what is the chance we get to see them on the field?

    It is great to see younger players are being included in the squad and I hope they will get a chance to play. I don't understand why Jonathan Bornstein is still on the team when he messes up more than being porductive, and the best midfielder in my view, Jose Francisco Torres is not. I think Torres needs to get another shot to be on the team unless his play has deteriorated drastically. Can anyone give me an update on Torres?

    As great a chance as Torres got -- playing out of position with a team that can't pass and even then only long enough for BB to answer his critics. While the rest of the world ponders the impact of Barca's style on their own play, BB keeps watching his 1980's training films. Do US Hispanics actually play soccer ??? BTW has anyone heard more regarding the possible contract with Bielsa for Technical Director? --- looks like another Klinsmann fiasco on the way.

    I have been watching M. Edu's play this season. He's a much more polished defensive midfielder than M. Bradley. Guch, Bocenegra, and Cherundolo will not make it to 2014. I will be attending the March 26 game. Interested in seeing if Bornstein has imporved.
