This is something I can definitely get used to seeing.

New England Revolution midfielders Jermaine Jones and Lee Nguyen have been named to Jurgen Klinsmann's 23-man roster for the United States Men's National Team's two upcoming friendlies at Chile and vs. Panama.

Per a release from U.S. Soccer, former Seattle Sounders defender DeAndre Yedlin will join the team fresh off his move to EPL side Tottenham Hotspur.

Klinsmann's initial roster had a focus on Olympic eligible players, with almost half of the camp being U23 players although most have been released back to their clubs. But there is still a good amount of youth on the US squad, including 9 uncapped players.

GOALKEEPERS (3): Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Jon Kempin (Sporting Kansas City), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
