German product Jermaine Jones is the only uncapped player U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley called up for Tuesday's
friendly against Brazil at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. (TV: ESPN2, Univision, live, 8 p.m. ET). He is one of only four players on the 18-player squad who didn't represent the
USA at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Jones, born in Germany to an American father, had announced his intention last year to represent the USA -- he previously played for Germany -- but he was then sidelined by a shin injury for nearly a year.
Jones, a 28-year-old midfielder, has returned to action and scored to help Schalke to a 2-1 victory over Hamburg on Saturday in the semifinal of the preseason LIGA total! Cup.
Alejandro Bedoya, Sacha Kljestan and Chad Marshall were named to the preliminary roster for the World Cup but did not make the final roster.
Seven of the 11 starters from the second-round game against Ghana return for the friendly. The only players missing are Jay DeMerit, Clint Dempsey, Ricardo Clark and Jozy Altidore.
Once again, the squad is dominated by foreign-based players.
Only five MLS players were selected: Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Edson Buddle (Los Angeles Galaxy), Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake) and Marshall.
GOALKEEPERS (2): Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Everton).
DEFENDERS (6): Carlos Bocanegra (Saint-Etienne), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United).
MIDFIELDERS (7): Alejandro Bedoya (Orebro), Michael Bradley (Borussia Moenchengladbach), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Benny Feilhaber (Aarhus), Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht).
FORWARDS (3): Edson Buddle (Los Angeles Galaxy), Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake), Herculez Gomez (Pachuca).
