Toronto skipper Bradley, Orlando City's Shea joined by Tottenham's Yedlin in USA squad

USA national team boss Juergen Klinsmann named a 22-man roster for this week's international friendly with arch rivals Mexico.

The US host El Tri at the Alamodome in San Antonio on Wednesday in what is sure to be another hotly contested clash between the CONCACAF neighbours.

Klinsmann has included stand-in captain Michael Bradley yet again with the Toronto FC ace to fill the duties of Seattle Sounders' Clint Dempsey who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.

MLS stars such as Brek Shea (Orlando City), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Mix Diskerud (New York City FC) and Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), have been joined in the squad by Tottenham defender DeAndre Yedlin, Club Leon goalkeeper William Yarbrough and Bayern Munich youngster Julian Green who is currently on loan at Hamburg.

Star striker Jozy Altidore will miss the clash with Mexico following his red card in the 1-1 draw with Switzerland in Zurich on May 31.
