The New York Red Bulls tandem of Tyler Adams and Tim Parker and Columbus Crew SC teammates Wil Trapp and Zack Steffen are among 10 new players called into the United States men’s national team camp for upcoming international friendlies in Europe against Ireland and France.
U.S. Soccer announced on Tuesday a 25-man roster for the final two matches of the team’s summer tour, which started with a 3-0 win over Bolivia Monday at Talen Energy Stadium.
Also called in are goalkeeper William Yarbrough, defenders Shaq Moore and DeAndre Yedlin, midfielders Luca de la Torre and Kenny Saief and forward Bobby Wood.
While Steffen, Adams and Trapp have each made previous appearances, Parker joins de la Torre and Moore as players seeking their first cap.
“We’re excited about the chance to add some of the veterans from Europe as well as younger guys in MLS who have been part of our group since November,” Sarachan said in a statement. “The games against Ireland and France will bring increasingly more difficult challenges, so we felt it was important to bring in some players that offer a bit more experience. These matches provide another big development opportunity for these players who are growing in their international careers.”
The US will meet Ireland, which lost to France, 2-0, on Monday, at Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Saturday (3 pm ET | ESPN2, UniMás, UDN) before facing France in their final World Cup tune-up on June 9 (3 pm ET | ESPN, UniMás, UDN) at Groupama Stadium in Lyon.
