ANDREW VORCE - Thursday, February 25, 2010
United States Men's National Team head coach Bob Bradley has released a roster of 20 names for next week's friendly in Holland on March 3rd.

Yanks Abroad will be there at Amsterdam Arena where Bradley and company will suit up against the Netherlands in a match scheduled to air on ESPN2 and Galavision.

The roster has some surprise inclusions of the 16 based European players including Eddie Johnson who is making his return after joining Greek club Aris Thessaloniki.

Alejandro Bedoya of Swedish club Orebro evidently impressed enough at last month's camp to garner another nod while Frank Simek returns to national team action for the first time since 2007.

Jonathan Bornstein, Heath Pearce, and Robbie Findley are the three current MLS based players while Jose Francisco Torres of Mexican club Pachuca also makes the roster.

Making the final cut is DaMarcus Beasley who returns to the national fold after struggling with playing time and injuries. International and club teammate Maurice Edu will also be on the roster, his first game back for the US since damaging his knee last May. Below you can view the full roster:
