Seattle Sounders forward Eddie Johnson and midfielder/defender Brad Evans have been called in for the USA national team’s friendly match at Bosnia on Wednesday.

The Sounders’ next MLS game is Saturday at Houston. Johnson was ineligible for that match anyway while serving a one-game suspension for yellow card accumulation.
