[USA] MLS rookies Tim Ream, Juan Agudelo and Teal Bunbury are among five players earning their first call-ups to the U.,S. national team for the 2010 Nelson Mandela Challenge on Nov. 17 in Cape Town (TV: ESPN2, Galavision, 2 pm ET).

Agudelo and Gale Agbossoumonde will join the U.S. U-20s after the trip for a mini-tournament against Mexico and Canada in Kennesaw, Ga.

Bunbury's father, Alex, played for Canada for many years, but Teal is eligible to play for the USA or Canada.

GOALKEEPERS (2): Dominic Cervi (Celtic), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa)
DEFENDERS (7): Gale Agbossoumonde (free agent), Nat Borchers (Real Salt Lake), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Eric Lichaj (Aston Villa), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United)

    Juan Agudelo looked exceptional in the Red Bulls final match against San Jose. I cannot wait to see him play for our USA National Team against South Africa. He has pace, superb dribbling control, creativity, game intelligence and he is only 19 years of age.

    It will be great to see T. Ream finally get his chance to prove himself. I think he'll end-up being a major player for the USMNT as a DB and realisticly should have won Rookie of the yr. I hope the best for the Men's National in the future.
