CHICAGO (AP) - Benfica midfielder Freddy Adu was selected Tuesday as part of a nearly all European-based roster for the United States' training camp in preparation for its Oct. 17 friendly against Switzerland in Basel.
Adu, who has played only one league game for the 31-time Portuguese champion since his July transfer from Real Salt Lake, will be joined by five of his teammates from the U.S. Under-20 World Cup team.
Besides Adu, who has one cap for the United States, U.S. manager Bob Bradley also called in seven players who have never played for the American senior side - three of whom played at the U20 World Cup in July: Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Chris Seitz, Hamburg SV forward Preston Zimmerman and Racing Santander midfielder Danny Szetela.
