It is nearing the time for Jurgen Klinsmann to call upon the players who he thinks can get the U.S. national team's World Cup qualifying campaign started off on the right foot, but it appears that there will be a degree of on-field competition before the U.S. manager narrows down his final roster.

Klinsmann will call upon as many as 29 players for a training camp to be held in Orlando from May 15-24 before picking a 23-man roster for friendlies against Scotland, Brazil and Canada and World Cup qualifiers against Antigua & Barbuda and Guatemala, according to U.S. Soccer.

In a Q&A session that Klinsmann hosted on the U.S. Soccer official Twitter account Tuesday, he also said that the first wave of players, mostly European-based, would be revealed on May 15. The second wave, comprised of mostly MLS-based players, will be unveiled May 20, a day after a full slate of MLS matches save for a game on the 20th between Portland and Chicago.

What do you think of the approach? Who are some of the players you want to see get included in camp?
