Bob Bradley has named a 24-man squad for the upcoming friendlies against Argentina and Paraguay.
Bradley has named a strong squad with all the U.S. stars who are playing overseas, coming back for the game. The biggest impact of the “imports” will be felt in midfield where eight of the nine players in the U.S. squad play in Europe.
There are three new players in the U.S. squad. The German-based duo of FC Nürnberg defender Timothy Chandler and MSV Duisburg goalkeeper David Yelldell as well as Zak Whitbread who represented the United States at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2003.
