Today, Juergen Klinsmann released his 22-man roster for the friendly to be played between the United States and Mexico next week, and it features two D.C. United players. Surprising no one, both Bill Hamid and Eddie Johnson have been called in by Klinsmann, and they will report to the national team after this weekend's game against the Chicago Fire. The roster is dominated by players from Major League Soccer, with only two members of the team not from America's top league.

Hamid has been a regular for the national team in these MLS-heavy friendlies, often battling with Sean Johnson for the second spot behind Nick Rimando. Johnson has been a fixture for the full national team, playing a key role as a starter and off the bench throughout World Cup qualification.

Notable inclusions to the team are Julian Green, who just recently had his one-time switch from Germany to the United States approved; Luis Gil, the Real Salt Lake phenom who excites many an MLS-watcher, and DeAndre Yedlin, the Seattle Sounders fullback. Notable exclusions from the team include Mike Magee and Benny Feilhaber, who seem like they will fall just short of consideration for the Brazil World Cup roster.

What do you think of the national team's roster for this friendly?
