CHICAGO (AP) — Midfielder Brek Shea and defender Oguchi Onyewu are returning to the U.S. national team roster for Wednesday's exhibition game against Ukraine for the first time since last summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Midfielder Danny Williams could play his first national team game since the World Cup qualifier at Honduras on Feb. 6 last year. Defender Tim Ream, who hasn't been with the team since August, also was among the 24 players picked Thursday for the match, which was moved to Larnaca, Cyprus, from Kharkiv because of violence in Ukraine.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann selected just three players not based in Europe: Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley, Tijuana defender Edgar Castillo and Seattle forward Clint Dempsey, who is completing a two-month loan to England's Fulham.
