Bradley Names Gold Cup Squad

The 23 man US roster for the Gold Cup, CONCACAF confederation chanpionship has been named. The squad is bonefide “A” team leading me to believe that very few top American players will be sent to Copa America. It is nice to see veterans Frankie Hedjuk and Stevie Ralston called back up for a major tournament, but I was dissapointed that Bob Bradley did not take this chance to give Eddie Lewis another look nor did he try and deepen the player pool up front with a young forward like Chris Rolfe or Kenny Cooper. I hope both Rolfe and Cooper get a call up for the Copa. I am pleased though to see Frankie Simek, Jay DeMerit and Jonathan Spector included in the team.

Here is squad:

Goalkeepers: Tim Howard (Everton), Brad Guzan (Chivas USA), Kasey Keller (Borussia Moenchengladbach).

Defenders: Frankie Hejduk (Columbus Crew), Carlos Bocanegra (Fulham), Jay DeMerit (Watford), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Michael Parkhurst (New England Revolution), Frank Simek (Sheffield Wednesday), Jonathan Spector (West Ham United), Oguchi Onyewu (Standard Liege).

Midfielders: DaMarcus Beasley (PSV Eindhoven), Michael Bradley (SC Heerenveen), Ricardo Clark (Houston Dynamo), Clint Dempsey (Fulham), Benny Feilhaber (Hamburg SV), Justin Mapp (Chicago Fire), Pablo Mastroeni (Colorado Rapids), Steve Ralston (New England Revolution).

Forwards: Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), Eddie Johnson (Kansas City Wizards), Taylor Twellman (New England Revolution)

    I should have pointed out Parkhurst has gotten this call up partly because their has been some contact between him and Steve Staunton lately, since he is dual citizen and eligible to play for Ireland. I expect him to get a cap and then not play again, but he is certainly going to be a big part of the national team setup down the road. He has been capped at the youth level many times for the US but until he gets a senior cap he is eligible to play for Ireland.

    Looks like a very inexperienced defense. It should make for some interesting games.
