Philadelphia Union's English Premier League opponent Aston Villa for Wednesday's friendly at PPL Park announced its summer traveling tour lineup Monday, and according to PhillySoccerNews.com the roster will feature forward Darren Bent, U.S. internationals Brad Guzan and Eric Lichaj.

Bent, a striker who has scored 147 career goals, is the most decorated player in the lineup. However, fans of the U.S. Men's National Team probably want to check out Guzan, a goalkeeper who has backed up Tim Howard in international play, and Lichaj, who has played eight games with the USMNT.

Here's Aston Villa full roster for the friendly:

GOALKEEPERS: Shay Given, Brad Guzan, Andy Marshall

DEFENDERS: Nathan Baker, Ciaran Clark, James Collins, Richard Dunne, Eric Lichaj, Matt Lowton, Enda Stevens, Stephen Warnock

MIDFIELDERS: Barry Bannan, Samir Carruthers, Fabian Delph, Karim El Ahmadi, Gary Gardner, Chris Herd, Brett Holman, Stephen Ireland, Daniel Johnson, Charles N’Zogbia

FORWARDS: Darren Bent, Gabby Agbonlahor, Nathan Delfouneso, Andi Weimann
