The 2012 MLS season didn’t end as Houston Dynamo supporters might have hoped, but the rewards for a second consecutive trip to MLS Cup – albeit in a losing effort – continue to pour in for Dominic Kinnear’s side.

On Sunday, three Houston players were called into the upcoming training camp for the U.S. national team. Goalkeeper Tally Hall and forward Will Bruin will each be making their first appearance in a national team camp, while Brad Davis – who last played for the American side in early 2010 - returns to the international stage.

The January camp traditionally serves as a proving ground for players on the periphery of the U.S. roster. This year’s camp figures to be especially competitive – with playing time and roster spots in pivotal World Cup qualifiers up for grabs. The Houston-based trio will look to replicate the success of Sporting Kansas City midfielder Graham Zusi, who parlayed a strong performance in last January's camp into regular minutes with Jurgen Klinsmann's first team throughout 2012.

The camp concludes with a friendly match against Canada at BBVA Compass Stadium on Jan. 29, offering Bruin, Davis and Hall the unique opportunity to represent their country in their home stadium.

No MLS team had more players called into the U.S. camp than Houston. San Jose and Kansas City also saw three of their players called.
