U.S. camp at Princeton, Boyzzz, Macoumba, Milan
*The U.S. national team will hold its domestic training camp ahead of the World Cup at Princeton University in New Jersey, the USSF announced. Players will begin arriving May 15 and the squad will train May 17-23 before friendlies against the Czech Republic on May 25 in East Hartford, Conn., and May 29 vs. Turkey in Philadelphia. The sessions are closed to the public. USA Coach Bob Bradley played and coached at Princeton. The 23-man squad will arrive in Johannesburg on May 31 -- 12 days before the Group C opener against England in Rustenburg.
*D.C. United midfielder-forward Boyzzz Khumalo said some of the comments attributed to him on an African-based site were misinterpreted and he has no intention of seeking a release from his MLS contract to play in his native South Africa. Added General Manager Dave Kasper: "We value Boyzzz. He will get his opportunity in the near future." Khumalo (53 minutes in three appearances) is a candidate to start in next Wednesday's U.S. Open Cup preliminary match against FC Dallas at RFK Stadium.
*New York Red Bulls starting forward Macoumba Kandji will miss two to three months with a broken foot. He was injured in training Tuesday.
*Besides the previously announced friendlies against United (May 26) and the second-division Montreal Impact (June 2), AC Milan will play the Chicago Fire on May 30 at Toyota Park.
