Bob Bradley has announced his USA squad for next week’s international friendly with South Africa in Cape Town.
Bradley has called a roster of 18 players together for the Nelson Mandela Challenge and sees it as a great opportunity to bring in some inexperienced players ahead of the CONCACAF Gold Cup next year.
“This game is a good opportunity to look at some different players and assess their place in the pool as we continue to build for the next cycle,” said Bradley. “With our immediate focus on the Gold Cup next summer, this game in many ways is just as much the start of 2011 as it is the end of a great year.”
Uncapped players Teal Bunbury, Dominic Cervi, Tim Ream, Juan Agudelo, Gale Agbossoumonde and Mikkel Diskerud have all been called in by Bradley for the November 17 clash.
