Klinsmann to unveil USMNT roster Sunday on Fox Soccer
US national team fans are in for a rare treat on Sunday.
Manager Jurgen Klinsmann will unveil his roster for January camp on national TV at 1 pm ET. He'll be on Fox Soccer's weekly Goals on Sunday show to announce and discuss his latest squad selections.
Why is this must-see TV, especially for MLS fans? Well, the anticipation is that there will be more than a handful of surprise picks and new faces.
Since the camp doesn't come during a FIFA international window, few European players are expected to be released by their clubs, giving an opportunity to the top international prospects from MLS.
We already know one player expected to be summoned: Hertha Berlin's Alfredo Morales, who revealed the news himself to German media outlets (read the story here).
To kick off its centennial year, the USMNT will face Canada on January 29 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston (9 pm ET) and that will be followed by the opening World Cup qualifier at Honduras on February 6 (4 pm ET).
in case there was any doubt about the plan for Sunday's roster unveiling, here's the confirmation from both Fox Soccer and the US Soccer Federation.
