CHICAGO (AP) -- Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey are on the U.S. national team roster for next week's exhibition game at Italy and could play together for the first time since Jurgen Klinsmann was hired as coach last summer.

The attacking pair were among 21 players selected Thursday. Borussia Dortmund forward Terrence Boyd was the only newcomer on the roster. Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan was selected for the first time since November 2010.

The Americans play the Azzurri at Genoa on Wednesday.
