USA vs. Honduras: Brad Evans, Eddie Johnson named to roster

Bob Levey

This is the first time Brad Evans has been called into the full roster for the United States, while the call-up continues Eddie Johnson's comeback.

The United States' Hexagonal opener will have a decidedly rave green feel to it on Wednesday. In addition to Mario Martinez being named to Honduras' roster, Brad Evans and Eddie Johnson have also been named to the team by USMNT manager Jurgen Klinsmann. They were two of just seven players from last week's game to get called into the full team.

Although Evans has seven caps, this is by far the most important match in which he's been named to the roster. Evans has only previously been called up for friendlies and Gold Cup matches. He has been listed on the roster as a defender after playing right back in the second half of last week's friendly against Canada.

The call-up is less of a surprise for Johnson, who was one of the USMNT's standout players during the most recent round of World Cup qualifying, scoring two goals and picking up an assist in games against Antigua and Barbuda and Guatemala. Johnson now has 14 goals in 45 appearances for the United States.
