U.S. men’s national team head coach Gregg Berhalter has called 19 players to training camp in Phoenix, Ariz. from Friday through Jan. 21.
New York City FC goalkeeper Sean Johnson and Red Bulls center back Aaron Long were among the players called into camp.
The domestic-based group will spend two weeks building match preparedness and competing for spots in the World Cup Qualifying training camp later this month.
The camp will include several closed-door scrimmages.
“Our focus for the next two weeks is to prepare the domestic-based players to be included in the World Cup qualifying training camp,” Berhalter said in a statement. “This upcoming window presents an opportunity to move closer to our ultimate goal of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.”
The team’s roster for the World Cup Qualifying camp in Columbus – which will include both domestic and European-based players – will be finalized at the end of the training camp.
