Bradley Names 20-Man Roster For US-Mexico Tilt

US Men's National Team head coach Bob Bradley announced Thursday a 20-man roster for their February 11 match versus Mexico at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, OH in the first match of the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Except for Columbus Crew defender Frankie Hedjuk, all the members on the roster were part of the team's last training camp January 4-23 at The Home Depot Center prior to their 2009 season-opening game against Sweden, which the US won, 3-0. 14 of the 20 players played in that game, including Chivas USA midfielder Sacha Kljestan, who scored all three goals.

All but forward Charlie Davies, who plays in Sweden for Hammarby IF, are on Major League Soccer rosters.

The 20 players will report to Carson, CA for nine days of training, then will head to Columbus February 7.
