Created on Nov 13, 2014 12:00 PM EST
During the November international break, the US Men's National team has two friendlies lined up, the first on November 14 against Colombia at London's Craven Cottage, the second against Ireland in Dublin on November 18th. Like most international breaks, teams outside of Europe use the lapse in league play to see what they have on the roster as they prepare for other competitions.
The United States have named a mix of veterans and youngsters for those friendlies as they seek to develop a squad that will compete at the highest level. The 25 man roster includes 16 players named to the 2014 World Cup squad. It also includes 12 players 24 years old or younger.
With such a mixed squad, US Coach Jurgen Klinsmann will be watching and evaluating several players. Here are 5 that you should keep an eye on if they see the pitch.
