Power 5: MLS players who should be on Klinsmann's radar

With the World Cup qualifying cycle set to begin in what amounts to a few weeks, Jurgen Klinsmann has some decisions to make.

Will he will stick with the US' established pieces to ensure a place in Brazil or will he dig a little deeper for players on the cusp of national team consideration? In all likelihood there won't be many new faces in USMNT camp this summer, but that doesn't mean it's not wise to look ahead at the next crop of players attempting to push their way into the pool.

Check out the videos below for five MLS players setting themselves up for a national team look.
