PREDICTED 29 PLAYER ROSTER
Donovan will make his return to the US team
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, May 14, 2012
Last weekend US head coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced he would call in 29 players into USMNT camp, here is my predicted roster.

The latest news that Klinsmann will call in 29 players allows him to be slightly more experimental and take a look at some younger players who are performing well. Also with MLS in full swing, there are some players who have stood out who deserve to be included.

According to Klinsmann, the first part of the roster will be announced on May 15 and that will consist of mostly European-based players. On May 20, the second part will be released and that will have mostly MLS players.

The US team will take on Scotland, Brazil, and Canada in friendlies. Followed by that, they will begin World Cup qualifying with games against Antigua & Barbuda and Guatemala.

With that said, here is who I have on the eve of the release for the first part of the roster
