U.S. men’s national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Monday named an experimental squad for Wednesday’s friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina, consisting of mostly foreign-based players with a good mix of Klinsmann-era regulars as well as several fringe players and first-timers.
Regulars Tim Howard, Geoff Cameron, Michael Bradley, Jermaine
Jones and Jozy Altidore all made the 23-man squad, alongside several CONCACAF Gold Cup winners from the so-called "B" team: Michael Orozco Fiscal, Michael Parkhurst, Edgar
Castillo, Alejandro Bedoya, Joe Corona and Mix Diskerud. Goalkeeper Cody Cropper, defender John Anthony Brooks and forwards Bobby Wood and Aron Johannsson will
be hoping to make their debuts, although Johannsson still has not yet been cleared by FIFA to play for the U.S. since making the switch from Iceland.

Evans and Eddie Johnson) made the list, interestingly, Clint Dempsey did not. Evans and Johnson were the only MLS players called up. Read the original story...
