Clint Dempsey, Brad Evans named to United States men’s national team January camp

Sounders forward Clint Dempsey and midfielder Brad Evans were among 28 players called in Monday for the first United States men’s national team camp of the year, which runs from Jan. 12 to Feb. 8.

Dempsey is tied for seventh all-time with 110 appearances and 99 starts for the USMNT, including appearances in each of the last three FIFA World Cups. His 39 career goals rank second and his 13 assists are tied for eighth. Evans, meanwhile, has 17 career USMNT caps and was a member of Klinsmann’s 30-man camp ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. He has one international goal – a stoppage-time winner at Jamaica on June 7, 2013, the latest match-winning goal in U.S. FIFA World Cup qualifying history.

Half of the players named to the roster have yet to earn a senior national team cap.

The camp culminates with a friendly against Panama on Feb. 8 at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.
