U.S. Men's National Team head coach Bob Bradley has named 18 players to the roster that will face five-time FIFA World Cup champions Brazil on Tuesday, Aug. 10, for the USA's first match since the 2010 FIFA World Cup. More than 55,000 tickets have already been sold for the first meeting between the two nations at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN2, Univision and ESPN Deportes Radio. Fans can also follow the match live online via ussoccer.com's MatchTracker and twitter.com/ussoccer.

Here is a by position breakdown of the US Squad:
