It has been announced that the Camp Cupcake(Actually I think is is a very important camp) USMNT will play Canada in January, so with that being said here is my 24 man roster. I know Klinsmann stated it to be 22 or 23, but I have gone with 24. So here t is:

GK: Clark, SeanJohn, Rimando
Defense: Sarkodie, Beita, Morrow, Gonzo, Besler, Berry, Hedges
Cm's: Diskerud, Beckerman, Mccarty, Kitchen
Am's: Adu, Pontius, DeLeon, Zusi, Gatt
FWDS: EJ, Agudelo, Boyd, Wondo, Bruin

Will we get a surprise and see Donovan on it? Possibly.

I always find it hilarious that USsoccer.com is always the last to report this

I really doubt that Donovan would be in there. Its a friendly and he said that he wants a break. Klinsmann will respect that. Here are a few players you didn't list that may be in the mix tho.

GK
- Luis Robles
- Zac Macmath

Def
- Corey Ashe
- Sean Cunningham
- Michael Parkhurst
- George John

Mid
- Brek Shea (If he is healthy. We all know Klinsmann loves him)
- Brad Davis
- Benny Feilhaber
- Sacha Kljestan
- Maurice Edu (Stoke would probably let him go since he isn't playing. That is of course if he doesn't go to another team beforehand)

Fwd
- Kenny Cooper
- CJ Sapong
- Alan Gordon (who knows, it was a surprise when he was in the qualifiers)
- Aron Johannsson (I read an article somewhere where he said that he was doubting his decision to represent Iceland and has been very tempted to join the US. He has been in regular contact with Klinsmann and has yet to be capped by Iceland)

*Possibly some young Mexican based players are decent bets too

I'd like to see Davis get an opportunity as well. Shea is still recovering from that foot surgery so it's not likely he's fit by the January camp. I could also see Edu being called in if Jones doesn't come.

Aron is not coming. He declined due to injury.

I think Aron should attend the game vs Canada. Put him up in a sky box that has a wheelchair ramp

Dont be surprised if alfredo morales gets an invite. Still has a ton of promise as a #6. And klinnsy loves him. Would be a great time to get him some work and maybe moved from hertha... Il never forget how he totally destroyed the mexican attack in that u-23 friendly.


A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
