Earthquakes Chris Wondolowski, Clarence Goodson Named To U.S. Roster For April 2 Friendly


The U.S. Men’s National Team will play its final friendly before entering preparation camp for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil on April 2 against Mexico at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Two members of the San Jose Earthquakes—captain and forward Chris Wondolowski and defender Clarence Goodson—will be on the roster for the match, according to a release from U.S. Soccer.

The match doesn’t fall on an international fixture date, which means most of the players with clubs in Europe won’t be available, but Bayern Munich forward Julian Green secured a release from his club in Germany in order to play in what could be his first international cap for the U.S.

The roster, by position and club affiliation, includes:

GOALKEEPERS: Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).

DEFENDERS: DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Matt Besler (Sporting KC), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Goodson, Michael Orozco (Puebla), Michael Parkhurst (Columbus Crew), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC).

MIDFIELDERS: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Philadelphia Union), Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake), Graham Zusi (Sporting KC).

FORWARDS: Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC), Julian Green (Bayern Munich), Eddie Johnson (D.C. United), Wondolowski.
