CHICAGO, ILL. – Former South Carolina men’s soccer standout, and current member of Major League Soccer’s Kansas City Wizards, Josh Wolff was one of 18 players selected by U.S. National Team manager Bruce Arena on Tuesday to play in a match against regional rival Mexico on April 28 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Wolff, who has 22 caps to his credit with the U.S. National Team, was one of five forwards selected to the team and is one of five players on the roster that were also part of the USA’s historic 2-0 victory against Mexico in the Round of 16 at the 2002 World Cup. In that contest, Wolff got his first start and earned an assist on Brian McBride’s game-winning goal.

While playing with the Gamecocks, Wolff lettered from 1995-97 and finished his career with 21 goals and 50 points, helping lead South Carolina to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances. He was named to the Soccer America All-Freshman team in 1995.

The match between the U.S. and Mexico will be broadcast live on Telemundo and Fox Sports World, with kickoff slated for 7:30 p.m. CT. Fans can also follow the match live online at
