US Expands Gold Cup Roster By Seven Players

Picture 2Under pressure from the U.S., CONCACAF is allowing the U.S. to draw from a 30-man roster while the other 11 teams in the three-week tournament are limited to only 23 players.

A statement from U.S. Soccer said the provision was provided “due to the extreme circumstances that teams face” when playing in consecutive tournaments so close together.

Bob Bradley, the U.S. coach, immediately took advantage of CONCACAF’s generosity Thursday by adding seven players from his Confederations Cup team to his Gold Cup roster: goalkeeper Brad Guzan, defender Jonathan Bornstein, midfielders Ricardo Clark, Benny Feilhaber and Sacha Kljestan, and forwards Jozy Altidore and Conor Casey.
