Marvel Wynne is off to join the U.S. national team.
The Toronto FC defender on Thursday was named to coach Bob Bradley's 23-man roster for a Feb. 24 exhibition match against El Salvador in Tampa Bay, Fla.
Wynne, 23, and the rest of the squad, made up entirely of players from Major League Soccer, will gather in Los Angeles for a training camp beginning next Wednesday in preparation for the match.
The match against El Salvador will be one of the last games before Bradley names his FIFA World Cup roster in May. The next scheduled game for the U.S squad is March 3 against the Netherlands in Amsterdam.
"These are important opportunities for these players as we continue to formulate our plans for the roster for the World Cup," Bradley said in a news release.
"This camp and the game against El Salvador provide a chance for the coaching staff to get one more long look at this group. El Salvador demonstrated during World Cup qualifying that they are a difficult team to beat. So, we expect a good match."
Wynne, who began playing with Toronto FC in 2007, is very much a fringe player with the U.S. national team.
With four caps to his credit, Wynne was a member of the U.S. side that lost 3-1 to Honduras in a friendly on Jan. 25 in Los Angeles. He was also member of the U.S. Olympic team at the 2008 Games in Beijing and was an unused substitiute for the U.S. at last year's FIFA Confederations Cup in South Africa.
Wynne made his national team debut against Argentina at the 2007 Copa America tournament.
