  • 2009 Gold Cup

The preliminary 30-man roster for the U.S. national team’s Gold Cup squad has been revealed. Some names have been left off while others are getting a chance that some would have liked to seen done earlier.

A lot of the bigger names from the Confederation Cup roster have been left off. Kind of weird not seeing Landon Donovan on the roster. I still would have liked to have seen a Geoff Cameron call up or someone like that who really deserves a shot here. I’m sure Cameron’s time will come soon enough though.

What do you all make of this?

GOALKEEPERS: Brad Guzan, Marcus Hahnemann, Luis Robles, Troy Perkins

DEFENDERS: Jonathan Bornstein, Dan Califf, Steve Cherundolo, Jay Demerit, Clarence Goodson, Eric Lichaj, Chad Marhsall, Michael Orozco, Heath Pearce, Michael Parkhurst, Marvell Wynne.

MIDFIELDERS: Freddy Adu, Davy Arnaud, Ricardo Clark, Benny Feilhaber, Eddie Gaven, Stuart Holden, Pablo Mastroeni, Robbie Rogers, John Thorrington, Jose Francisco Torres,

FORWARDS: Jozy Altidore, Conor Casey, Kenny Cooper, Charlie Davies, Jeremiah White

    Dolo's healthy again? That's good news. I'm looking forward to seeing Wynne, Parkhurst, Torres, Adu, and Coop. I also hope Orozco and Arnaud can get some playing time. Orozco has essentially been shunned since that red card in the Olympics, and Arnaud has been tearing it up for KC this year. <br />

    This is definitely a B squad, but I think we still have a good chance of winning!

    Wouldn't call this a B-team since that team is obviously playing in SA right now. Let's hope some guys side up and show they belong on the WC squad next Summer.<br />

    BTW, there will be no more players added to the pool with less than one year from the WC, that time has passed. The Camerons, Quranta's and so on can now look forward to 2014. Pools closed now.

    I'm looking forward to this young lineup. Perhaps they can push some of these veterans if they play well. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Freddy Adu and Jose Francisco Torres can do during the Gold Cup.
