The United States women may have won gold in soccer, but the men's team will be gearing up for a match of their own against Mexico's Olympic champions this Wednesday.  Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann released the 22-player travel squad for the friendly match at Mexico City's Estadio Azteca today, and list is highlighted by newcomers  and fringe players as well as some familiar faces.

A duo of defenders - Sporting Kansas City's Matt Besler and the San Jose Earthquakes' Steven Beitashour - will be making their first appearance at a U.S. training camp, while regulars like forward Landon Donovan and midfielder Jermaine Jones are still in the squad. However, Klinsmann elected not to call up stalwarts like defenders Carlos Bocanegra and Steve Cherundolo, midfielders Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey, and forward Jozy Altidore.
