US Squad for Switzerland Friendly Announced

Bob Bradley has decided to experiment with the call ups for the friendly next Wednesday against Switzerland. Freddy Adu, Danny Szetela, Robbie Findley and Maurice Edu are among the younger players called into the squad, while grizzled veterans Eddie Lewis and Marcus Hannehman earned much deserved recalls. With MLS once again playing right through an international break, Bradley’s options for calling up MLS players was limited, especially given the friendlies proximity to the end of the MLS Regular Season.

Here is the full squad:

Goalkeepers – Marcus Hahnemann (Reading), Tally Hall (Esbjerg fB), Chris Seitz (Real Salt Lake)

Defenders – Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham), Dan Califf (Aalborg BK) Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Jay DeMerit (Watford), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard Liège), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock), Steve Purdy (1860 Munich II)

Midfielders – Freddy Adu (Benfica), DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers), Michael Bradley (SC Heerenveen), Benny Feilhaber (Derby County), Maurice Edu (Toronto FC), Eddie Lewis (Derby County), Danny Szetela (Racing Santander), Sal Zizzo (Hannover 96)

Forwards – Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Robbie Findley (Real Salt Lake), Preston Zimmerman (Hamburg)

I’m particularly pleased that Edu, Findley and Califf are in the squad. All three have been playing very well with their clubs. Eddie Lewis is now 33 but the fact that he starting for Premier League Club means he must be considered still in good enough playing shape for the National Team.
