Brad Evans, Eddie Johnson both called into USMNT's January camp

Jurgen Klinsmann calls in 25 players, the vast majority of which are based in MLS.

Both Brad Evans and Eddie Johnson have been called into the United States national team's January training camp, it was announced on Sunday. Unsurprisingly, the camp will be made up primarily of MLS players, with all but four of the 25 playing in the domestic league. The camp immediately precedes a friendly against Canada on Jan. 29 and leads into the start of World Cup qualifying on Feb. 6.

Neither Evans nor Johnson were huge surprises. Johnson is coming off a resurgent year in which he made a triumphant return to the national team. He had also hinted at his inclusion in a series of retweets that were congratulating him.

There had been less obvious indications that Evans would get the call, but this is the third time in four years that he's been called into camp and he too is coming off a strong year. Evans scored four goals and had four assists in 29 games last year, arguably his best season as a professional.

Former Sounders defender Jeff Parke also received a callup.

Full roster:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Tally Hall (Houston Dynamo), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire)

DeLaGarza (LA Galaxy), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Connor Lade (New York Red Bulls), Alfredo Morales (Hertha Berlin), Justin Morrow (San Jose Earthquakes), Jeff Parke (Philadelphia Union)
