USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has called in 25 players for training camp to begin preparations for the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers, and Sporting Kansas City midfielder Graham Zusi will be a participant.

Sporting KC defender Matt Besler, who was called into the national team for their 1-0 friendly win over Mexico on August 15th, did not make Klinsmann's 25 player roster.

The USMNT will face off against Jamaica on September 7th in Kingston, followed by the Caribbean nation at Columbus Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio on September 11th.

Very good news for Graham, but even better news for Sporting Kansas City is that his participation with the USMNT won't conflict with Sporting KC's schedule, as the two international matches fall into FIFA international fixture dates, meaning Graham will not miss any games for Kansas City.

Sporting Kansas City's next match is September 14th against the Houston Dynamo at Livestrong Sporting Park.
