Parkhurst but not Bradley added to US roster for exhibition vs South Korea

  • Print

CHICAGO - Columbus defender Michael Parkhurst has been added to the U.S. roster for a Feb. 1 exhibition against South Korea at Carson, Calif., but Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley was not included in the 22-man group.

Parkhurst was acquired by the Crew on Jan. 13, the same day Toronto obtained Bradley from Roma.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Friday he had dropped five players who had been with the team during a training camp in California and Sao Paulo: Colorado defenders Chris Klute and Shane O'Neill; Kansas City defenders Chance Myers and Seth Sinovic; and Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall.

The U.S. team started training Jan. 6 at Carson, Calif., and shifted to Brazil for a week-and-a-half at Sao Paulo FC, the facility the Americans will use as their base during the World Cup.

Klinsmann made a brief visit Friday to the Arena da Amazonia in the jungle city of Manaus, where the U.S. plays Portugal on June 22. The coach previously toured Natal, site of the June 16 match against Ghana, and Recife, which hosts the June 26 game against Germany.

After the game against South Korea, the Americans play at Ukraine on March 5, a FIFA fixture date that allows the full player pool to be available.

The roster:

Goalkeepers: Bill Hamid (D.C.), Sean Johnson (Chicago), Nick Rimando (Salt Lake).

Defenders: Matt Besler (Kansas City), Brad Evans (Seattle), Omar Gonzalez (Los Angeles), Clarence Goodson (San Jose), Michael Harrington (Portland), Michael Parkhurst (Columbus), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle).

Midfielders: Eric Alexander (New York), Kyle Beckerman (Salt Lake), Brad Davis (Houston), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg, Norway), Benny Feilhaber (Kansas City), Luis Gil (Salt Lake), Dax McCarty (New York), Graham Zusi (Kansas City).

Forwards: Landon Donovan (Los Angeles), Eddie Johnson (D.C.), Mike Magee (Chicago), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose).
