Klinsmann picks 24 players for friendly

Team USA heads to Cyprus to face Ukraine in a friendly on March 5. Check out who made the team.

Midfielder Brek Shea and defender Oguchi Onyewu are returning to the U.S. national team roster for Wednesday's exhibition game against Ukraine for the first time since last summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Oguchi Onyewu is among 24 U.S. players picked by coach Jurgen Klinsmann for next week's friendly vs. Ukraine.

Midfielder Danny Williams could play his first national team game since the World Cup qualifier at Honduras on Feb. 6 last year. Defender Tim Ream, who hasn't been with the team since August, also was among the 24 players picked Thursday for the match, which was moved to Larnaca, Cyprus, from Kharkiv because of violence in Ukraine.

The Associated Press incorrectly reported that Jonathan Spector also was included on the U.S. roster but he isn't in fact among coach Jurgen Klinsmann's selections.

Klinsmann selected just three players not based in Europe: Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley, Tijuana defender Edgar Castillo and Seattle forward Clint Dempsey, who is completing a two-month loan to England's Fulham.

Other than Dempsey, Klinsmann did not select any MLS players whose teams open on March 8-9.

"This game is a huge opportunity, mainly for our European-based players, for those guys to prove to us that they are eager and hungry to jump on the train to the FIFA World Cup,'' Klinsmann said. "With this game being the only chance for these players before our World Cup preparation camp begins, it's even more important they have a good showing.''

The U.S. team will start gathering Sunday in Frankfurt, Germany, for two days of training. Among the players who will practice is 18-year-old Bayern Munich forward Julian Green, who is not yet eligible to play for the United States. Green played for Germany in qualifying for this year's European Under-19 Championship.

The game is the last chance for the Europe-based players to train together before Klinsmann selects his roster for the May training camp ahead of the World Cup. The U.S. is expected to use a group mostly from Major League Soccer for its April 2 exhibition against Mexico at Glendale, Ariz.

Preparing for its seventh straight World Cup appearance, the U.S. is planning home exhibitions on May 27, June 1 and June 7 before leaving for the tournament in Brazil, where the Americans play Ghana (June 16), Portugal (June 22) and Germany (June 26) in the first round.

The roster

Goalkeepers: Cody Cropper (Southampton, England), Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, England), Tim Howard (Everton, England)

Defenders: John Brooks (Hertha Berlin, Germany), Geoff Cameron (Stoke, England), Edgar Castillo (Tijuana, Mexico), Alfredo Morales (Ingolstadt, Germany), Oguchi Onyewu (Sheffield Wednesday, England), Will Packwood (Birmingham, England), Tim Ream (Bolton, England)

Midfielders: Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes, France), Michael Bradley (Toronto), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg, Norway), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim, Germany), Jermaine Jones (Besiktas, Turkey), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht, Belgium), Brek Shea (Barnsley, England), Danny Williams (Reading, England)

Forwards: Juan Agudelo (Utrecht, Netherlands), Jozy Altidore (Sunderland, England), Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna, Austria), Clint Dempsey (Seattle), Julian Green (Bayern Munich, Germany), Aron Johannsson (AZ Alkmaar, Netherlands).
