The 31-year old has been called up by Juergen Klinsmann who now has a 24-man squad in his Denver training camp in preparation for Friday’s meeting with the Costa Ricans at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
The US were beaten 2-1 by Honduras in San Pedro Sula last month in their hexagonal round opener whilst Costa Rica drew 2-2 with Panama. Tuesday’s opponents Mexico were held to a scoreless draw by Jamaica in the opening fixture on February 6.
