[UKRAINE-USA] Birmingham City defender Jonathan Spector is a late addition to the the U.S. national team that will be training in Frankfurt, Germany, on Monday before heading to Larnaca, Cyprus, for its World Cup tune-up against Ukraine on Wednesday.

Spector's call-up brings to 22  the number of players who will train Monday before the team departs the following day. Michael Bradley, Mix Diskerud and Tim Ream all withdrew for the team that started gathering Sunday in Frankfurt.

The Chicago product, who began his career at Manchester United, can play anywhere on the backline. He has not played for the USA since the historic 1-0 victory against Italy on Feb. 29, 2012, in Genoa. A last-minute injury prevented him from coming into camp ahead of the March 2013 qualifiers. He joins Birmingham teammate Will Packwood, the one player who has never attended a senior national team camp. Both started for the Blues Saturday in their 1-0 loss at Ipswich Town.



U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Cody Cropper (Southampton), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Everton).
DEFENDERS (7): John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Edgar Castillo (Tijuana), Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt), Oguchi Onyewu (Sheffield Wednesday), Will Packwood (Birmingham City), Jonathan Spector (Birmingham City).
MIDFIELDERS (6): Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim), Jermaine Jones (Besiktas), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Brek Shea (Barnsley), Danny Williams (Reading).
FORWARDS (6): Juan Agudelo (FC Utrecht), Jozy Altidore (Sunderland), Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna), Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders), *Julian Green (Bayern Munich), Aron Johannsson (AZ).
*Ineligible to play.
