What a difference a week makes for the US national team. First they had a nice result in the Confederations Cup over in South Africa and due to their participation in that tournament CONCACAF is allowing Bob Bradley to increase his roster size for the Gold Cup from 23 to 30.

Here is the initial 23-man USA roster:

GOALKEEPERS– Jon Busch (Chicago Fire), Troy Perkins (Valarenga), Luis Robles (FC Kaiserslautern)
DEFENDERS– Steve Cherundolo (Hannover 96), Jimmy Conrad (Kansas City Wizards), Clarence Goodson (IK Start), Jay Heaps (New England Revolution), Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew), Michael Parkhurst (FC Nordsjaellands), Heath Pearce (Hansa Rostock)
MIDFIELDERS– Davy Arnaud (Kansas City Wizards), Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Colin Clark (Colorado Rapids), Sam Cronin (Toronto FC), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders), Stuart Holden (Houston Dynamo), Logan Pause (Chicago Fire), Robbie Rogers (Columbus Crew)
FORWARDS– Freddy Adu (AS Monaco), Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo), Kenny Cooper (FC Dallas), Charlie Davies (Hammarby IF), Santino Quaranta (D.C. United)

So what seven players would you add to the roster? Here is a list of names that could be considered (I know some may be injured or out of form but it could be a good chance nonetheless):

Christ Pointus, Chis Seitz, Brad Guzan, Jose Francisco Torres, Geoff Cameron, Robbie Findley, Kamani Hill, Cory Gibbs, Michael Orozco, Eddie Johnson, Jeremiah White.
