The MLS Combine gets underway in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., later this afternoon, and MLS has released the rosters for the four teams that will compete in front of coaches and scouts for the next four days.

Seven foreign players were invited to participate in the combine, which is otherwise comprised of NCAA seniors and Generation adidas signings. One of those GA signings, Duke's Andrew Wenger, has backed out of competing in the combine due to U.S. U-23 commitments but is a consensus top-two pick in next Thursday's MLS SuperDraft. He's also a finalist for the Hermann Trophy, which is set to be handed out Friday in Missouri as well.

The foreign invitees to the combine are: Former England youth international Jason Banton, Glenir Garcia, Yuri Gorentzvaig, Kohei Yamada, Benjamin Ubierna, Emiliano Bonfigli and Aldo Paniagua. Last year's foreign invitees included the likes of Toronto FC's Joao Plata and the Los Angeles Galaxy's Paolo Cardozo.

SBI will be providing live commentary from today's matches, with the first of two kicking off at 2:45 p.m.

What do you think of the rosters? Which team do you think will have the most success? Who are you looking forward to see compete at the combine?
