Here’s a release from the Sounders:
U.S. Soccer today announced that Sounders FC defender Brad Evans has been added to the U.S. Men's National Team roster for its annual January Camp in Carson, California. The first training camp of 2016 runs until February 6 and contains a mix of Senior Team members and a host of players age-eligible for the U-23 Men's National Team, culminating with friendlies against Iceland and Canada.
Evans, 30, has 25 career international caps, including eight caps in 2015, and recorded the game-winning assist in the USMNT's 2-1 win at Germany on June 10 of last year. 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. Evans made four appearances for the USMNT at the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
The USMNT is set to play its first two competitive matches of the 2016 calendar year following January Camp, beginning with a matchup with Iceland on Sunday, January 31 at 12:45 p.m. PT (ESPN2, UniMas, UDN). Klinsmann's squad then takes on CONCACAF rival Canada the following Friday, February 5 at 7:15 p.m. PT (FS1, UniMas, UDN). Both matches are taking place at StubHub Center in Carson, California.
Never miss a local story.
Evans is set to join Sounders FC's 2016 preparations following the conclusion of January Camp. The Rave Green's preseason begins next week at Starfire Sports before the club takes part in a series of Desert Friendlies in Tucson against Vancouver Whitecaps FC, the Portland Timbers and Mexican side Celaya FC in early February. Seattle's eighth MLS season begins in late February with the 2015-2016 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League Quarterfinal Round match against Club America before the MLS season-opener on March 6. 2016 Sounders FC Season Ticket Packages, which include the first leg against Club America on February 23 at CenturyLink Field, are available now for as low as $24 per match via the following link: http://sndrs.com/uxb7 or by calling 1-877-MLS-GOAL.
