Klein Called In for Poland Match as Noonan Injures Hamstring

The injury bug has forced a change to Bruce Arena's 20-man roster for the USA's match vs. Poland. Real Salt Lake midfielder Chris Klein has been added to the squad that will travel to to face Poland on March 1 in Kaiserslautern, Germany (tickets).

Klein replaces New England Revolution midfielder Pat Noonan, who suffered a hamstring injury in the 79th minute of the Revs 0-0 draw against Liga Deportiva Alajuelense in the CONCACAF Champions Cup on Wednesday (Feb. 22) night.

Klein already has two goals and two assists through four games for the U.S. in 2006, scoring the final goal in the USA's 5-0 win against Norway before tallying again in the 4-0 shutout against Guatemala.
