The Sounders boast the present and perhaps the future of the right back position for the U.S. men’s national team. Those players — Brad Evans and DeAndre Yedlin, respectively — were called up by coach Jurgen Klinsmann for training camp starting Monday in Carson, Calif.

The camp will head to São Paulo, Brazil, from Jan. 13-25 as a World Cup dry run of sorts and then return to prepare for a Feb. 1 friendly against South Korea.

Evans, 28, just had a breakout year at the international level, playing 10 games for the USMNT in 2013, but this marks the first call-up with the senior team for Yedlin. The 20-year-old Seattle native played for the U.S. in the FIFA U-20 World Cup last year in Turkey.

Clint Dempsey, the U.S. captain, will remain on loan with Fulham of the English Premier League.
