DAVID SMITH - Thursday, October 10, 2013
One day ahead of their World Cup qualifying clash with Jamaica, US Men's National Team coach Jürgen Klinsmann has added a trio of players to his 22-man squad.
With Eddie Johnson suffering a groin injury in training on Wednesday, Klinsmann has called upon two-time MLS scoring champion Chris Wondolowski to shore up the front line.
The San Jose attacker has had a relatively quiet season in MLS by his own lofty standards with just ten goals. He is coming into camp having scored one of the most important of the season on Wednesday night, putting away the winner against Colorado to give his team a glimmer of hope to reach the playoffs.
In addition, his San Jose teammate Clarence Goodson has been added to the squad, and will add depth to the team's central defense behind likely starters Matt Besler and Geoff Cameron.
The final addition to the squad is veteran Houston winger Brad Davis, who could earn his fourth cap of this qualifying campaign should he take the field against either Jamaica on Friday or Panama the following Tuesday.
