The United States men's national soccer team will meet for its first January camp since the firing of Jurgen Klinsmann, and new manager Bruce Arena has invited 32 players, the team's official website announced Thursday.

The roster for the camp, which begins Jan. 10, features 32 players, all from MLS:



Since the camp does not fall within an officially recognized international break, notable stars who play in Europe, such as Borussia Dortmund's Christian Pulisic, are not included on the roster.

However, the biggest story is the addition of veterans who have experience playing under Arena. DaMarcus Beasley, 34, and Chad Marshall, 32, are especially notable. Dax McCarty, 29, who hasn't been capped since 2011, is also set to participate.

McCarty likely didn't expect an invite, as the start of camp interferes with his wedding:



The camp roster features a few players for whom fans have been calling to get a chance with the team, including Benny Feilhaber and Darlington Nagbe. Young players such as Sebastian Lletget, 24, and Kekuta Manneh, 22, will also get their first taste of senior team experience.

On the other hand, Chris Wondolowski is set to make another appearance, much to the dismay of many fans.

Doug McIntyre of ESPN FC noted an interesting omission, however:



Clint Dempsey will apparently not be involved after missing time with a heart condition.

Arena, who took over for Klinsmann in November, coached the national team from 1998 to 2006. The USMNT's first match under new leadership will be a friendly against Serbia on Jan. 29, followed by a match against Jamaica on Feb. 3.

The squad will then resume CONCACAF qualifying play for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a match against Honduras on March 24.
