NEW YORK (AP) — Defenders John Brooks, Timmy Chandler and DeAndre Yedlin are among the 30 players selected by U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann on his 30-man preliminary roster.

Midfielder Julian Green, who made his national team debut last month, and forwards Terrence Boyd and Chris Wondolowski also are among the players picked who will try to earn spots at the Americans’ pre-World Cup training camp, which opens Wednesday at Stanford, California.

Other players on the preliminary roster for Team USA from the Sounders include Brad Evans and Clint Dempsey.

Klinsmann must submit a 23-man roster to FIFA by June 2.

Among those left off Monday were defender Tim Ream; midfielders Sacha Kljestan, Brek Shea, Jose Torres and Daniel Williams; and forwards Herculez Gomez and Juan Agudelo.

Half the players are from Major League Soccer, with four each from England’s Premier League and Germany’s Bundesliga.

In this Sept. 26, 2013 file photo, fans watch during the third quarter of an NFL football game between the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis. Pro football may have a firm foothold as America’s game, but in baseball-mad St. Louis the NFL is decidedly second fiddle. The St. Louis Cardinals can anticipate a red army at Busch Stadium for Game 5 of the World Series. Eight blocks away at the antiseptic Edward Jones Dome, the Monday Night Football matchup between the struggling St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks will likely feature a backdrop of thousands of empty seats.
