United States Men's National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has added FC Dallas midfielder Brek Shea and midfielder Sacha Kljestan to the training camp roster ahead of the match against Italy on Feb. 29 in Genoa.

The pair replace Timmy Chandler (left hamstring strain), Landon Donovan (bronchitis), and Jose Torres (right hamstring strain).

Further roster additions may be made Monday afternoon.

Shea was part of the U-23 MNT squad preparing for their match with Mexico on the same day the full team takes on Italy. Shea will depart Caleb Porter's group in Frisco, Texas, and arrive in Italy on Monday.

Yet another call up for Shea by Klinsmann. What do you all think?
