United States Men's National Team head coach Caleb Porter named five Philadelphia Union players as part of his 28-man roster for the Olympic squad's December camp, today. The Union players make up the largest group of club teammates on the team.

Freddy Adu, Zac MacMath, Jack McInerney, Amobi Okugo and Sheanon Williams will head to Florida from December 15-28 to train with the rest of the under-23 team at the Premier Sports Campus. Of the five, only Adu has played at the senior international level for the United States, while MacMath is a former, and Okugo a current, under-20 player, while McInerney has represented the United States at nearly every youth level possible. Williams earned his call up to the camp through stellar play during a season in which he quickly became regarded as one of MLS's best defenders and helped to steady a Union defense that was unspectacular in 2010.

The group will join goalkeepers David Bingham (San Jose Earthquakes), Bill Hamid (D.C. United) and Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire); defenders Gale Agbossoumonde (Eintracht Frankfurt), Royal-Dominique Fennell (Stuttgarter Kickers), Sebastien Ibeagha (Duke), Kofi Sarkodie (Houston Dynamo), Zarek Valentin (Montreal Impact), Jorge Villafana (Chivas USA), Andrew Wenger (Duke); midfielders Bryan Arguez (Montreal Impact), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Danny Cruz (Houston Dynamo), Mikkel Diskerud (Stabæk), Dilly Duka (Columbus Crew), Jared Jeffrey (Mainz), Sebastian Lletget (West Ham United) and Michael Stephens (LA Galaxy); and forwards Will Bruin (Houston Dynamo), Teal Bunbury (Sporting KC), Jann George (Nürnberg), Joe Gyau (Hoffenheim) and Andrew Wooten (Kaiserslautern).
