Juergen Klinsmann announces first group of players invited to U.S. training camp

Juergen Klinsmann will unveil his roster for the U.S. national team training camp in two stages: mostly foreign-based players today, as many as 13 additional players Sunday after MLS matches. Camp commences today in Orlando.

On May 25, the day before the friendly against Scotland in Jacksonville, he will trim the list to 23 players — a group scheduled to remain intact for the friendlies against Brazil and Canada and the World Cup qualifiers against Antigua and Guatemala.

Today’s group.....

GOALKEEPERS: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard (Everton), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).

DEFENDERS: Carlos Bocanegra (Rangers), Edgar Castillo (Club Tijuana), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover), Alfredo Morales (Hertha Berlin).

MIDFIELDERS: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Chievo Verona), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Maurice Edu (Rangers), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim), Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04), Jose Torres (Pachuca), Danny Williams (Hoffenheim).

FORWARDS: Clint Dempsey (Fulham).
