Bradley brings in more players
After allowing 10 players to go back to their respective clubs or to go on vacation, U.S. National Team coach Bob Bradley is bringing in at least players to look at or take to Barbados for Sunday's World Cup qualifier.
In fact, five players will be recalled after Thursday night's MLS match between Chivas USA and Chicago Fire, according to www.ussoccer.com. Chivas will have goalkeeper Brad Guzan, who backstopped Sunday's 8-0 first-leg romp over the Caribbean side, and midfielder Sacha Kljestan. The Fire will supply the U.S. with three players -- midfielder John Thorrington and forwards Chad Barrett and Chris Rolfe.
Kljestan had been called in the first game of the total goals series, but was returned to Chivas a day prior the U.S.'s win.
A former standout at Seton Hall University, Kljestan scored the game-winning goal for Chivas in its 2-0 MLS win over the Chicago Fire at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. Thursday.
Already called into camp were midfielder Danny Szetela (Brescia), goalkeeper Chris Seitz (Real Salt Lake) and defender Drew Moor (FC Dallas).
Bradley will unveil the U.S. roster for the Barbados game Friday.
