Photo Gallery: US National Team Training at Stanford.

The march to Brazil began here in the Bay Area, with the full 30-man squad in training at Stanford. Center Line Soccer photographers Lyndsay Radnedge and Maciek Gudrymowicz were on hand to capture some of the players as they conducted interviews and began their training sessions.

The final training camp began in our own backyard, with a 30 man roster at Stanford University.  Chris Wondolowski and Clarence Goodson of the San Jose Earthquakes, both local to Palo Alto, were among the first to arrive, both hoping to make the cut to the 23-man roster that will travel to Brazil.  With the arrival Jermaine Jones all thirty squad members were training in earnest and impress head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

The final 23-man roster is now  in place, and the squad will play three matches in its 'Send-Off Series', which kicks off with USA vs. Azerbaijan, powered by Yingli Solar, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, May 27th, at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. Tuesday's game will be preceded by an open public practice at Candlestick park on Monday, May 26th beginning at 5 PM.

The USA then hosts Turkey at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 1st, at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, before traveling to Jacksonville, Florida, to face Nigeria on June 7th at 6 p.m. ET at EverBank Field.  All three Send-Off Series matches will be broadcast live on ESPN2, WatchESPN, UniMas and ESPN Deportes Radio. Fans can also follow the games live on Twitter @ussoccer.
