Two Houston Dynamo Players Called To USMT World Cup Camp

Davis, 32, who has 12 caps with the national team over the course of his career. Five of those caps came for the midfielder in the most recent qualifying run for the US team on their way to leading the CONCACAF region to Brazil.
Hall, 28, has yet to record an appearance for the US squad in goal, but was called up in June for the US World Cup Qualifier against Jamaica. Hall played every game for the Dynamo in 2013, recording 14 wins and nine shutouts.
The team will train in Carson for a week before heading down to Brazil to break in camp in Sao Paulo for 12 days. At that point the team will return to the USA to play fellow Qualifiers Korea Republic in a friendly on February 1st.
