BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Seattle forward Clint Dempsey and Toronto midfielder Michael Bradley were among six Major League Soccer players added to the U.S. roster for Tuesday night’s exhibition game against Honduras at FAU Stadium.

Five of the additions were on the U.S. roster for this year’s World Cup. In addition to Dempsey and Bradley, Kansas City defender Matt Besler and midfielder Graham Zusi also were added along with New England midfielder Jermaine Jones. The sixth addition was Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

Six players who were on the roster for Friday’s 1-1 tie against Ecuador in Hartford, Connecticut, were returned to their clubs. Forward Landon Donovan, who made his 157th and final international appearance, rejoined the Los Angeles Galaxy for their match Sunday at Dallas. Also dropped from the national team roster were Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez, Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan, Salt Lake midfielder Luis Gil, Hertha Berlin defender John Brooks and Borussia Dortmund forward Joe Gyau.

Gyau sprained his left knee in the first half Friday and left the field on crutches. He was to be evaluated Saturday.
