  • Argentina, Paraquay, US National Team

The usual cast of characters have been called into action for two upcoming friendlies this month against Argentina (March 26th) and Paraguay (March 29th). U.S. national team manager Bob Bradley leaned on guys like Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey and Carlos Bocanegra once again. But he also called in a couple surprise players.

This will be the first time since last year’s World Cup that the USMNT plays with their “A” Team. The team will come together in Cary, NC for training camp next week before their match in New Jersey against Argentina. The Paraguay match is set to be played in Nashville.

Here is the full squad:

GOALKEEPERS-Marcus Hahnemann (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Tim Howard (Everton), David Yelldell (MSV Duisburg)

DEFENDERS-Carlos Bocanegra (Saint-Etienne), Jonathan Bornstein (UANL Tigres), Timothy Chandler (FC Nürnberg), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Jay DeMerit (Vancouver Whitecaps), Oguchi Onyewu (FC Twente), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United), Zak Whitbread (Norwich City)

MIDFIELDERS-Michael Bradley (Aston Villa), Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Mikkel Diskeruud (Stabaek), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus), Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers), Jermaine Jones (Blackburn Rovers), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht)

FORWARDS-Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls), Jozy Altidore (Bursaspor), Edson Buddle (FC Ingolstadt)

Notes:

– Interesting to see newcomers Yelldell, Chandler and Whitbread called in here for this camp. I’ve heard plenty of good things about Chandler.

– Only four MLSers called in for this camp, which should make most MLS coaches happy.
