U.S. Soccer has announced that Seattle Sounders midfielder Brad Evans has been added to the National Team roster for upcoming training camp.
The 28-year old Evans has continued his steady role with the Sounders this season, playing in nearly every game for the MLS campaign as well as in CONCACAF Champions League. A calf injury kept him sidelined for a brief period in early April, but he has been healthy since.
Evans has been a regular member of National Team camps since last year, after not being looked at much since 2010. He was called into the January camp by Jurgen Klinsmann and played against Canada, giving him three caps under the German coach.
Evans joins an already deep midfield pool consisting of Michael Bradley, Joe Corona, Brad Davis, Maurice Edu, Stuart Holden, Jermaine Jones, Sacha Kljestan, Brek Shea, Danny Williams and Graham Zusi, though several will be joining late due to club commitments. He will join Seattle teammate Eddie Johnson in camp, which will begin in the days leading up to the clash with Belgium on May 29, and go into World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Honduras next month.
