Those expecting to analyze Jurgen Klinsmann's first round of player selections will have to wait another day.

U.S. Soccer announced that the roster next week's friendly against Mexico will be revealed on Thursday, not Wednesday, as Klinsmann had suggested during his initial press conference as U.S. national team coach on Monday.

According to the U.S. Soccer official Twitter feed, Klinsmann is still in the process of contacting players personally, thus postponing the release of what is expected to be a 20-man roster.

While SBI reported yesterday that fullbacks Eric Lichaj and Jonathan Spector are unlikely to participate in the match, a report out of Germany suggests that right back Timmy Chandler has been called in.
