Klinsmann adds four for January camp
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann has made four additions to the roster for training camp in Carson, Calif.
Goalkeeper David Bingham (San Jose Earthquakes), defenders Steve Birnbaum (D.C. United) and Brandon Vincent (Stanford University) and midfielder Perry Kitchen (D.C. United) will report to U.S. Soccer's National Training Center for the start of training Monday.
San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Fatai Alashe (groin) and defender Marc Pelosi (tendinitis) have withdrawn from the camp roster.
The camp, which runs from Jan. 11-Feb. 6 and contains a mix of Senior Team members and a host of players age-eligible for the U-23 MNT, will culminate with friendlies against Iceland on Jan. 31 and Canada on Feb. 5 at StubHub Center in Carson.
Birnbaum and Kitchen made MNT debut during last year's January camp. Birnbaum started in the USA's 3-2 loss against sixth-ranked Chile. Kitchen contributed to the 2-0 win against Panama Feb. 8 at StubHub Center.
This will be the first senior National Team camp for Bingham and Vincent. The 26-year-old Bingham played every minute in goal for San Jose in the 2015 season. Having participated in the U.S. Under-23 MNT College Identification Training Camp in August last year, Vincent joins fellow former Stanford Cardinal and NCAA champion Jordan Morris in Carson.
