Clint Dempsey and Brad Evans were among the 28 players called to the US Men's National Team camp today by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, according to ussoccer.com. They'll be joined by World Cup contributors like Jermaine Jones, Michael Bradley, and Chris Wondolowski.

The roster is primarily made up of MLS players, with 21 bodies currently signed with the domestic American league and another (Mix Diskerud) could join that number in coming days. The roster also includes Miguel Ibarra of the NASL's Minnesota United FC.

Camp will start in California on Monday and stretch until January 25th, where the setting shifts to Chile for five days (where they will play an international friendly with the host country.) Camp will break on February 8th after a friendly with Panama.
