[USA MEN] Jurgen Klinsmann called up German youth international Fabian Johnson
of Hoffenheim for the USA's friendlies against Costa Rica on Sept. 2 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. (ESPN2, ESPN3.com, Galavision, 8 p.m. PT, 11 p.m. ET) and Belgium four days later at
Brussels' King Baudouin Stadium (ESPN, ESPN3.com, 2:30 p.m. ET). Three players who started in Klinsmann's debut match against Mexico were not called in: the Germany-based trio Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones and Edson Buddle.
Bradley is seeking a move from Borussia Moenchengladbach. Jones has not played for Schalke 04 since the Mexico game on Aug. 10. Buddle is playing but not starting for second division FC Ingolstadt.
Ricardo Clark, who came on as a late sub against Mexico, isn't playing for second division Eintracht Frankfurt and also did not get a call-up.
Recent Philadelphia Union signing Freddy Adu is the fifth player from Klinsmann's first squad who won't be headed to the HDC.
Besides the 23-year-old Johnson, born in Germany to an American serviceman, Timmy Chandler, another German-American, received a call-up. He was called up for the Mexico game but withdrew with the Bundesliga season about to start.
Clarence Goodson and Maurice Edu are also back after missing the Mexico game because of injuries.
Five other players not called up for the Mexico game will join the U.S. squad: Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Jeff Larentowicz (Colorado Rapids), Jozy Altidore (AZ Alkmaar), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht) and Teal Bunbury (Sporting Kansas City).
