Davis joins U.S. national team training camp

[HEXAGONAL COUNTDOWN] Houston Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis has been added to the U.S. national team roster for the World Cup qualifying matches against Costa Rica and Mexico. Davis, who dressed for but did not play in the Hexagonal opener at Honduras, is the 24th player in camp.

Davis joins Eddie Johnson, DaMarcus Beasley, Joe Corona and Brek Shea as options for Klinsmann on the left side of midfield.

Shea has only played briefly since his move to Stoke City and admitted after the first day of training on Monday his injured foot was still bothering him.
