Due to player injuries, U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has had to make a few changes to his January camp roster.

On Friday, U.S. Soccer announced that Stanford fullback Brandon Vincent, as well as San Jose Earthquakes goalkeeper David Bingham, D.C. United defender Steven Birnbaum and Perry Kitchen, will join the U.S. camp.

The additions make up for the withdrawals of San Jose Earthquakes players Fatai Alashe and Marc Pelosi, as they are both recovering from injuries.

The senior call-up is the first for Bingham and Vincent, while Birnbaum and Kitchen were both members in last year’s edition of the January camp.

The Americans will train from Jan. 11 to Feb. 6, and compete in two friendlies. On Jan. 31, the U.S. will host Iceland at StubHub Center in Carson, California. Klinsmann’s men will then play Canada on Feb. 5.

What do you think of the new additions? Who do you think will make the most impact among the quartet?
