Spector, Shea, Onyewu, Williams return to US roster for exhibition vs Ukraine next week
CHICAGO – Jonathan Spector could make his first U.S. national team appearance in more than two years in Wednesday's exhibition game against Ukraine, and midfielder Brek Shea and defender Oguchi Onyewu are returning to the roster for the first time since last summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Midfielder Danny Williams could play his first national team game since the World Cup qualifier at Honduras on Feb. 6 last year. Defender Tim Ream, who hasn't been with the team since August, also was among the 24 players picked Thursday for the match, which was moved to Larnaca, Cyprus, from Kharkiv because of violence in Ukraine.
Spector hadn't been picked for the roster since September 2012 and hasn't appeared for the national team since an exhibition win at Italy in February 2012.
