World Cup: Eight USMNT players to participate in Google+ Hangouts this week

With the US national team preparing for the upcoming World Cup with camp at Stanford University, eight players are taking time out of their busy schedule to talk to MLS fans from all over the country.

US Soccer announced on Monday that it will host Google+ Hangouts this week in conjunction with Major League Soccer as part of the "One Nation. One Team" Digital Week.

Fans from each MLS club will get an opportunity to participate in the Google+ Hangout on Air. Fans can ask questions for the Hangouts through social media and with the #ForClubAndCountry hashtag.

The eight players will pair up for the four Hangouts taking place. Kyle Beckerman of Real Salt Lake and DeAndre Yedlin of the Seattle Sounders will kick the series off on Wednesday, May 21, at 4:30 pm ET. The Houston Dynamo's Brad Davis will team up with Columbus Crew defender Michael Parkhurst on Thursday, May 22, at 5 pm ET.

San Jose Earthquakes striker Chris Wondolowski and Graham Zusi of Sporting Kansas City will participate in the Hangout on Friday, May 23, at 5 pm ET. And Maurice Edu of the Philadelphia Union and Omar Gonzalez of LA Galaxy will finish up the Digital Week events on Sunday, May 25, at 6 pm ET, just hours before the Union and Galaxy face off in league play (8 pm ET, Univision Deportes).
