[USA MEN] U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann has called in Brad Davis, Clarence Goodson and Chris Wondolowski to training camp following their MLS games Wednesday night. Wondo replaces Eddie Johnson, who suffered a left groin strain during Wednesday's training session.

Goodson and Davis were late additions to U.S. roster for the Mexico Sept. 10 and Goodson started in place of the suspended Matt Besler in the 2-0 win. Davis has six U.S. appearances in 2013, including three World Cup qualifiers.

Wondolowski scored five goals in the first two U.S. games at the Gold Cup to earn a share of the Golden Boot as the tournament's top scorer along with Landon Donovan and Gabriel Torres of Panama. He started through the quarterfinals before giving way up front to Johnson, who was added for the knockout stage. Wondo has yet to play in the Hexagonal.

Johnson, who scored the winning goal in the 2-0 win over Mexico, has emerged in the last year as one of the most important players for Klinsmann.

Beginning with the two goals in the 2-1 win at Antigua & Barbuda a year ago, Johnson has scored some big goals for the USA. He scored the second goal in the 2-0 win over Panama in their World Cup qualifier in June, he scored in both the quarterfinals and semifinals of the Gold Cup in July and had the first goal in the 4-3 comeback win at Bosnia-Herzegovina in August.

The roster chances increase the player squad to 22 players, one less than the maximum number of players that can dress for a game.

U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Everton), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).
DEFENDERS (7): DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Matt Besler (Sporting KC) Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Edgar Castillo (Tijuana), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders), Clarence Goodson (San Jose Earthquakes), Michael Orozco (Puebla).
MIDFIELDERS (7): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Graham Zusi (Sporting KC).
FORWARDS (5): Jozy Altidore (Sunderland), Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Aron Johannsson (AZ), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes).
