Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Sun­der­land mid­fielder Lyn­den Gooch has been in­vited to the U.S. na­tional team train­ing camp for the first time and could make his de­but in Fri­day’s ex­hi­bi­tion against Cuba in Ha­vana.

The 20-year-old from Santa Cruz, Cal­i­for­nia, made his Premier League de­but on Aug. 13 and has six starts and one sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ance this sea­son for the Black Cats. Ju­lian Green, a 21-year-old Bay­ern Mu­nich mid­fielder who was on the 2014 World Cup ros­ter, also was among the 23 play­ers se­lected Sun­day. Green has been dress­ing reg­u­larly for Bay­ern this sea­son but has made just one ap­pear­ance, as a sec­ond-half sub­sti­tute in a Ger­man Cup match in Au­gust. Coach Ju­r­gen Klinsmann also picked Read­ing mid­fielder Danny Wil­liams. He omit­ted vet­eran goal­keep­ers Tim Howard and Brad Guzan in fa­vor of three young­sters: San Jose’s David Bing­ham, Molde’s Ethan Hor­vath and Leon’s Wil­liam Yar­brough. While Howard has been start­ing for Colorado, Guzan has not played for Mid­dles­brough since Au­gust.
