U.S. men’s national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann
on Monday named an experimental squad
for Wednesday’s friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina, consisting of mostly
foreign-based players with a good mix of Klinsmann-era regulars as well as several fringe players and first-timers.
Regulars Tim Howard, Geoff Cameron, Michael Bradley, Jermaine
and Jozy Altidore
all made the 23-man squad, alongside several CONCACAF Gold Cup winners from the so-called "B" team: Michael Orozco Fiscal, Michael Parkhurst, Edgar
Castillo, Alejandro Bedoya, Joe Corona and Mix Diskerud
. Goalkeeper Cody Cropper
, defender John Anthony Brooks
and forwards Bobby Wood
and Aron Johannsson
be hoping to make their debuts, although Johannsson still has not yet been cleared by FIFA to play for the U.S. since making the switch from Iceland.
While two Seattle Sounders (Brad
and Eddie Johnson
) made the list, interestingly, Clint Dempsey
did not. Evans and Johnson were the only MLS players called up.
