Brian Mullan and Wade Barrett have joined Brian Ching in U.S. National team camp while Ricardo Clark after injury right knee ligaments has had to pull out.
The camp will prepare for matches against Ecuador in Tampa and Guatemala in Frisco, TX.
The squad is an interesting one in that Europe based players with fresh faces like Benny Feilhaber (Hamburg), Frank Simek (Sheffield Wednesday), Jay DeMerit (Watford) and Jonathan Spector (West Ham) and manager Bob Bradley’s son Michael Bradley (Herenveen) have all been called in.
As fans we are watching the beginning of a new four year cycle with the goal South Africa 2010.
Dynamo striker Brian Ching makes his first appearance with the national team since the 2006 World Cup in Germany coming off a great game against Pachuca. Mullan and Barrett also had solid games in the historic win.
The Dynamo depth will be tested with the loss of Ricardo Clark for the second leg in Mexico in early April.
“By the end of this camp we will have had the chance to work with a vast majority of our player pool. It will be extremely beneficial when we have to make decisions about the Gold Cup and the Copa America,” says manager Bob Bradley.
