Jurgen Klinsmann has released his roster for the January USMNT camp, where domestic and Scandinavian-based players will take on Venezuela and Panama.

Ahh, Camp Cupcake. Every January, the United States men's national team holds a camp and plays two friendlies. These are not FIFA dates, so they are only allowed to call in players whose domestic leagues are currently on break. This basically limits Jurgen Klinsmann to players currently playing in Major League Soccer and Scandinavia. It's been a great proving ground for fringe guys in the past, and a number of players who are on the edge of the 'real' team will relish the opportunity to prove to Jurgen Klinsmann that they deserve to be there.

The first match for the Camp Cupcake squad is on Saturday, Jan. 21 against Venezuela in Arizona. In their second friendly, they travel to take on Panama in Panama on Jan. 25. Here's the entire roster for that camp.

Goalkeepers (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake) 

Defenders (7): Geoff Cameron (Houston Dynamo), A.J. DeLaGarza (LA Galaxy), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), George John (FC Dallas), Zach Loyd (FC Dallas), Michael Parkhurst (FC Nordsjaelland), Heath Pearce (Chivas USA) 

Midfielders (6): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Ricardo Clark (Eintracht Frankfurt), Benny Feilhaber (New England Revolution), Jeff Larentowicz (Colorado Rapids), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City) 

Forwards (4): Juan Agudelo (New York Red Bulls), Teal Bunbury (Sporting Kansas City), C.J. Sapong (Sporting Kansas City), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)
