Kyle Beckerman called in to USMNT for match against Honduras at Rio Tinto

USA TODAY Sports

Kyle Beckerman has been added to the U.S. Men's National Team roster for the single remaining 2014 World Cup qualifier, to be played at Rio Tinto Stadium.

His addition comes after some injuries to the men's team, including a concussion for midfielder Jermaine Jones. He'll be in contention with Geoff Cameron for the defensive midfield spot, and while Jones could make it into the match as he's expected to be recovered from his concussion, one can never be too careful with those sorts of things.

Beckerman joins goalkeeper Nick Rimando on the squad and should miss no MLS matches as a result of his late call-up.

It seems unlikely that either man will play, but given the match is Tuesday at Rio Tinto, the home-stadium advantage could be slightly tempting for coach Jurgen Klinsmann. Both players are very likely to feature heavily in the Gold Cup, a match of which will take place at Rio Tino Stadium as well.
