Feilhaber, Nagbe, Agudelo back on US soccer roster for Arena

Publish date:

CHICAGO (AP) Kansas City midfielder Benny Feilhaber, Portland midfielder Darlington Nagbe and New England forward Juan Agudelo are returning to the U.S. national team for its first training camp under coach Bruce Arena.

Arena announced 11 Major League Soccer players on Friday who will attend a training camp that opens Jan. 11 in Carson, California, ahead of a Jan. 29 exhibition against Serbia in San Diego.

Seattle forward Clint Dempsey, sidelined since Aug. 21 by an irregular heartbeat, is likely to attend camp in a limited capacity, and Arena hopes he could be in shape to play during World Cup qualifiers in late March against Honduras and Panama.

DaMarcus Beasley, at 34 a veteran of four World Cups, also will attend. He spent the last 2+ seasons with Houston.

The 31-year-old Feilhaber, a member of the 2010 U.S. World Cup roster under Bob Bradley, appeared in just three games under Jurgen Klinsmann, who was fired last month after losses to Mexico and Costa Rica that opened the final round of 2018 qualifying.
