His last international outing came in November 2016 during a defeat to Costa Rica and Gooch will now be looking to stake his claim for a regular international spot.

Led by interim manager Dave Sarachan, the USA will later head to Europe to face France and the Republic of Ireland - although wholesale squad changes are expected for those games.

The fixture against Bolivia will take place on May 28 at the Talen Energy Stadium, home of Philadelphia Union.
