Dempsey, Yedlin on US roster for European friendlies

CHICAGO (AP) — World Cup veterans Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley highlight the U.S. team chosen by Jurgen Klinsmann on Sunday for exhibition matches against Denmark and Switzerland.

Seattle's Dempsey and the two Toronto stars are among six Major League Soccer players on the 23-man side. Goalkeeper Nick Rimando of Real Salt Lake joins defender Brek Shea of expansion Orlando City SC and midfielder Gyasi Zardes of the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The rest of the roster is comprised mostly of players in Europe, such as Tottenham Hotspur's DeAndre Yedlin, Hamburg's Julian Green and AZ Alkmaar's Aron Johannsson.

The United States is set to face Denmark in Aarhus on March 25, and Switzerland in Zurich on March 31.
