CHICAGO -- Acting United States head coach Dave Sarachan called in 30 players for the national team’s annual January training camp, it was announced Monday.
The squad will convene on January 10 at the National Training Center in Carson, California, and work towards an international friendly in the same city against Bosnia and Herzegovina on January 28 at the StubHub Center.
"We're excited about our 2018 January Camp roster. It's all about the future and opportunity," said Sarachan. "We clearly feel that we want to have a look at these players that have the chance to be a part of the National Team for a number of years to come. It's a long journey forward, but this is the first step starting in 2018 for the program and for these players to now get experience at this level."
Seven players from the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup championship side earned invitations, including Seattle Sounders FC forward Jordan Morris, who struck for the game-winning goal in the 2-1 win over Jamaica in the final.
D.C. United midfielder Ian Harkes, the son of U.S. soccer legend John Harkes, will participate in his first national team camp.
