MOST COMMENTED

Landon Donovan and DaMarcus Beasley will join the U.S. U-23 national team, which is aiming to qualify for next summer's Olympic Games, for the team's two-week January training camp in Carson, Calif.

Without Donovan and Beasley, the Americans downed St. Kitts & Nevis in the second round of CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying by an aggregate score of 10-0 after receiving a bye in the first round.

To qualify for the Olympic tournament, the Americans must finish among the top two at the final-round qualifying tournament Feb. 2-12 in Mexico, where they face Panama, Canada and Honduras in Group A. The top finishers in group play advance to the semifinals. Group B consists of Costa Rica, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago and Mexico.

Conor Casey of German Second Division Karlsruhe is the only foreign-based player on the roster. Belgian-based Oguchi Onyewu (Louviere) and Alexander Yi (Antwerp) will remain in Europe for winter break.

Coach Glenn Myernick has included two collegians: goalkeeper Steve Cronin (Santa Clara) and defender Chris Wingert (St. John's).
