Tottenham's Clint Dempsey and AZ Alkmaar's Jozy Altidore were selected on Monday in the US squad for Wednesday's crucial North American final-round World Cup 2014 qualifying opener at Honduras.
The fourth-place team will face the Oceania winner for another berth in next year's World Cup finals in Brazil.
"We want to have a sense of urgency right from the start of the final Round," US coach Jurgen Klinsmann said. "We have a lot of respect for Honduras, but our message to the team is that we are going there to get three points.
"One thing we learned from the semi-final round is that you have to bring the right mentality to play in the tough games on the road and I'm confident we are ready to do that."
