Jurgen Klinsmann has made one change to his first roster for the US Men’s National team. Today he announced that FC Dallas defender Zach Loyd would replace the injured Tim Chandler on the 22-man roster.

Chandler had been battling injuries since the start of the Bundesliga season and was not fit enough to make the game.

Loyd will be getting his second call-up with the US team. His first came back in January when the US tied Chile 1-1. Loyd went 73 minutes in that match and was named the Man of the Match. The 24-year old has played in 21 games for FC Dallas this season, scoring once and adding two assists
