After a two-game snub, Jozy Altidore is back on the U.S. men's roster for its final game of the season, an exhibition against Russia. Altidore was among the 20 players named by coach Jurgen Klinsmann for Wednesday's game against the Russians, ranked ninth in the world, in Krasnodar. Klinsmann had dropped Altidore from the roster for a pair of critical World Cup qualifiers because he was disappointed with the forward's performance in recent games and practice. Also returning to the roster is defender Timmy Chandler, a German-American who has played for the Americans in exhibitions but had refused to play in World Cup qualifiers, which would have bound him to the U.S. team. Full roster: Goalkeepers: Tim Howard (Everton), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake) Defenders: Carlos Bocanegra (Racing Santander), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), Timmy Chandler (Nuremberg), Maurice Edu (Stoke City), Clarence Goodson (Brondby), Fabian Johnson (Hoffenheim) Midfielders: Michael Bradley (Roma), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Joshua Gatt (Molde), Joe Gyau (Hoffenheim), Jermaine Jones (Schalke 04), Sacha Kljestan (Anderlecht), Danny Williams (Hoffenheim) Forwards: Juan Agudelo (Chivas USA), Jozy Altidore (AZ Alkmaar), Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna), Herculez Gomez (Santos Laguna)
