Bradley names U.S. roster to face Mexico
U.S. men's national team coach Bob Bradley has named a roster of 20 players that will train in advance of the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Mexico on Feb. 11 in Columbus, Ohio (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
The match will mark the third straight time that Columbus Crew Stadium has hosted the home leg of the final round World Cup qualifying series between the United States and Mexico. Tickets sold out within 90 minutes of going on public sale.
Eighteen of the 20 players on the roster participated in the first two rounds of World Cup qualifying last year. Bradley has called on a dozen players from foreign-based clubs, led by team captain Carlos Bocanegra. Jose Francisco Torres -- who plays in the Mexican Primera Division -- is the only player on the roster who is not based in Europe or the United States.
