  • International Friendlies, Sweden, US National Team

The camp roster for the Sweden friendly next month has been announced today. Its a very heavy MLS style roster. The camp, set to kick off on Jan. 4 in Carson, California, will conclude with the U.S. team’s friendly against Sweden on Jan. 24 at Home Depot Center.

Here is the 25-man roster for the January training camp:

GOALKEEPERS– Jon Busch (Chicago Fire), Will Hesmer (Columbus Crew), Troy Perkins (Valerenga IF), Matt Pickens (out of contract)

DEFENDERS-Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Danny Califf (FC Midtjylland), Sean Franklin (Los Angeles Galaxy), Cory Gibbs (Colorado Rapids), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew), Chris Wingert (Real Salt Lake), Marvell Wynne (Toronto FC)

MIDFIELDERS – Geoff Cameron (Houston Dynamo), Brian Carroll (Columbus Crew), Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo), Eddie Gaven (Columbus Crew), Stuart Holden (Houston Dynamo), Jack Jewsbury (Kansas City Wizards), Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA), Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew), John Thorrington (Chicago Fire)

FORWARDS- Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo), Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas), Charlie Davies (Hammarby IF), Chris Rolfe (Chicago Fire)

Some surprises to me include Geoff Cameron, Jack Jewsbury and Chris Wingert. To me I feel as though the US is sending a B or C squad for this game next month against the Sweds. Rightfully so if you ask me as most of these players are out of season right now and it will be a good time for Bob Bradley to test out some new players.

What do you make of the camp roster? Any shockers to you?

    I love Carroll getting the call. I do have to say, I don't really understand the National Team love for Eddie though.
