Jovan Kirovski

MLS-based U.S. squad to face Mexico

dating back to 1934 -- with a record of 28-10-10, the Tricolores have not scored a goal against the U.S. on home soil in five consecutive games.

The goalkeepers for the U.S. squad -- Kevin Hartman (L.A. Galaxy) and Jonny Walker (MetroStars) -- have four caps between them, while the defense is a mix of youth and experience, as Gibbs and Danny Califf (Galaxy) join veterans Eddie Pope (MetroStars) and Frankie Hejduk (Columbus Crew).

The only European-based player in the group selected by Arena is forward Conor Casey (Karlsruhe, Germany). He joins Kirovski, Landon Donovan (San Jose Earthquakes), and Taylor Twellman (New England Revolution) in the attack.
