Today, United States Men’s National Team interim head coach Dave Sarachan named the 30 players that will comprise the 2018 January Camp roster. The players will head to California to open up training camp, culminating in a friendly against Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 28th in Carson.
The roster is a MLS-heavy squad, with the league in the offseason and not scheduled to resume until March. Because the match against Bosnia falls outside of a FIFA international window, teams were not required to release their players, and with most of Europe currently in the middle of their season, only Bill Hamid and Rubio Rubin were called into camp from Europe.
The 30-man roster:
DEFENDERS (9): Danilo Acosta (Real Salt Lake), Justen Glad (Real Salt Lake), Nick Lima (San Jose Earthquakes), Justin Morrow (Toronto FC), Ike Opara (Sporting Kansas City), Tim Parker (Vancouver Whitecaps), Matt Polster (Chicago Fire), Brandon Vincent (Chicago Fire), Walker Zimmerman (Los Angeles Football Club)
MIDFIELDERS (11): Tyler Adams (New York Red Bulls), Paul Arriola (D.C. United), Russell Canouse (D.C. United), Marky Delgado (Toronto FC), Marlon Hairston (Colorado Rapids), Ian Harkes (D.C. United), Brooks Lennon (Real Salt Lake), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders FC), Kelyn Rowe (New England Revolution), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew SC), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)
FORWARDS (6): Juan Agudelo (New England Revolution), Dom Dwyer (Orlando City SC), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC), Christian Ramirez (Minnesota United FC), Rubio Rubin (Unattached), CJ Sapong (Philadelphia Union)
