U.S. men's soccer coach Jurgen Klinsmann
Anyone hoping to see the U.S. squad that lifted the CONCACAF Gold Cup continue their winning streak against Bosnia-Herzegovina Wednesday is going to be disappointed.
The lineup revealed by Jurgen Klinmann was comprised of nearly all Euro-based players, with a mere two of the 23 named to the squad plying their trade in MLS.
Whether chosen to limit extensive travel for MLS players or simply to get a look at some new faces, the decision to corral players closer to Sarajevo is probably a smart move by the U.S. coach considering the relative irrelevance of the match.
The United States men's national team enters Wednesday's match on an 11-game unbeaten streak, including six straight wins in the Gold Cup.
Following are the 23 players named to the squad:
Goalkeepers: Cody Cropper (Southampton), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Tim Howard(Everton)
Defenders: John Anthony Brooks (Hertha Berlin), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Edgar Castillo (Club Tijuana), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC), Michael Orozco Fiscal (Puebla), Michael Parkhurst (Augsburg), Tim Ream (Bolton Wanderers)
Midfielders: Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes), Michael Bradley (Roma), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim), Jermaine Jones(Schalke), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Danny Williams (Reading)
Forwards: Jozy Altidore (Sunderland), Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna), Eddie Johnson(Seattle Sounders FC), Aron Johannsson (AZ Alkmaar), Bobby Wood (1860 Munich)
