There has been some speculation that following the match against Colombia, most of the MLS players still competing in MLS Cup Playoffs will return to their clubs. It has been suggested that this will allow Klinsmann to call in a few more players for the game against Republic of Ireland on Tuesday. A possible call up for that game is rumored to be FC Dallas forward Tesho Akindele who turned down a call up from the Canadian National Team after hearing of potential interest from the US.
When: Friday 14th November, 2:45pm ET
TV: ESPN, UniMas
Notes: It was rumored that these two teams would play on September 9th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, but the game fell through due to alleged clerical errors.
