Coach Jurgen Klinsmann chose 19 players from Major League Soccer, including forward Dempsey of Seattle and midfielder Donovan of Los Angeles.
''Everyone knows the clock is ticking,'' Klinsmann said. ''This is a huge opportunity for our players to show where they are at and to make their case. We expect them to give a really strong performance against a Mexican team that is now basically coming back on track. They need to prove now that they badly want to go to Brazil.''
