US Men's National Team Head Coach Bob Bradley announced today the players who will be called in to train with the National Team prior to the US's World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica and Honduras.
Bradley named 24 players to the squad that will start training in Miami on May 26th. 7 MLS players were called in, but none from the Fire.
For selfish reasons, no Fire players being called in to the camp is a good thing. The Fire are about to begin a stretch of 4 games in 13 days and losing anymore players to international duty (Cuauhtemoc Blanco has already been called in to Mexico's squad) would make that stretch even tougher.
Here is the full roster that will train from May 26th-June 1st before
heading to San Jose for the June 3rd match against Costa Rica:
GK: Brad Guzan, Tim Howard
DEF: Carlos Bocanegra, Jonathan Bornstein, Danny Califf, Jay DeMerit,
Frankie Hejduk, Oguchi Onyewu, Heath Pearce, Jonathan Spector, Marvell
MID: Freddy Adu, DaMarcus Beasley,
Michael Bradley, Maurice Edu,
Benny Feilhaber, Sacha Kljestan, Pablo Mastroeni, José Francisco Torres
FWD: Jozy Altidore, Brian Ching, Charlie
Davies, Clint Dempsey, Landon Donovan

Happy that they won't be missing any other players? Disappointed that
Bob Bradley didn't see enough in any of the Fire's Americans to call
