Major League Soccer is well represented in Jurgen Klinsmann’s travel roster for Wednesday’s friendly in Mexico City with Mexico.

Only six players are European-based for this call-up – largely due to the European season kicking off here this month.

The players are reporting to Mexico City beginning Sunday, and will train for two days prior to the mid-week fixture.
