Bolton Wanderers midfielder Stuart Holden will rejoin the United States men's national team after an absence of 2 1/2 years for its training camp ahead of three World Cup qualifiers next month and the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann made the announcement Thursday on the U.S. Soccer Federation's website. A member of the 2010 U.S. World Cup team, Holden injured his right knee on a challenge by Manchester United's Jonny Evans during a Premier League match on March 19, 2011. Holden had surgery on the knee in September 2011. The 27-year-old didn't play again until Jan. 15 this year. He recently completed a one-month loan to Sheffield Wednesday. Holden hasn't played for the United States since Oct. 12, 2010, against Colombia.
