HOUSTON (CBS RADIO) – Houston Dynamo Captain Brad Davis was named to the 22 man roster for the United States upcoming friendly match against Mexico in Arizona.

Davis was one of seven midfielders named to the roster for the World Cup warm-up game in Glendale, AZ on April 2nd.

The game will be a big step for Jurgen Klinsmann to get a solid look at many of his MLS based players before figuring out the final 25 man roster for the World Cup in Brazil in June.

“Everyone knows the clock is ticking,” said Klinsmann on “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.”

Nineteen of the 22 players come from 11 clubs across the MLS, Davis being the only member of the Dynamo selected. The three players outside the MLS are Defenders DaMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco who play at Puebla in the Mexico’s top league and the newest edition to the US roster, 18-year-old Julian Green from Germany’s top club Bayern Munich.

Green just got his transfer paperwork approved by FIFA to enable him to play for the United States over Germany.

Davis is one of five players who are their club team captains to be selected to the roster by Klinsmann.

The entire roster for the game looks like this:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
DEFENDERS (8): DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Clarence Goodson (San Jose Earthquakes), Michael Orozco (Puebla), Michael Parkhurst (Columbus Crew), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC)
MIDFIELDERS (7): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Maurice Edu (Philadelphia Union), Luis Gil (Real Salt Lake), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
FORWARDS (4): Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC), Julian Green (Bayern Munich), Eddie Johnson (D.C. United), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)
