Toronto FC midfielder Michael Bradley and forward Jozy Altidore have been called up by the United States national team for a pair of upcoming friendlies, including one game against Canada.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann announced his 23-player roster on Wednesday for the matches against Iceland (Jan. 31) and Canada (Feb. 5). Both friendlies will take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., home of the LA Galaxy.

Other Canadian-based players named to the American squad include defenders Tim Parker of the Vancouver Whitecaps and the Montreal Impact’s Eric Miller.

Bradley (15 goals, 109 caps) and Altidore (31 goals, 89 caps) are veterans of the U.S. side, while Parker and Miller have yet to make their debuts for the senior team.

Bradley was recently named the U.S. Soccer Male Player of the Year for 2015. The TFC midfielder captained the U.S. in 16 of his 18 matches last year.

The U.S. is No. 32 in the current FIFA world rankings. Canada is ranked 88thin the world.
