The New England Revolution will have two representatives in next week's US Men's National Team friendlies as both Juan Agudelo and Jermaine Jones have been called up by head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. The duo is scheduled to depart for Europe on Monday to prepare for games against the Netherlands on Friday, June 5 and Germany on Wednesday, June 10. Agudelo and Jones will return to New England after the Germany game.

Jones has been a regular for the USMNT, earning 50 caps since 2010. He's appeared twice in 2015, playing in friendlies against Chile and Panama. He was also a key player in the 2010 World Cup, playing every minute of every game. His crowning moment came in the Portugal match when he scored a long-range beauty.

Agudelo was recently reintroduced to the US Men's National Team after making his debut at age 17. His redebut was a success as he scored the second goal in a 2-0 win over Mexico on April 15. Agudelo's role for USMNT could increase as Jozy Altidore is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Jones and Agudelo will miss next weekend's Revs game against the Portland Timbers while they are away on international duty.
