Which new players will get the call?
Last week US Soccer announced that the US national team would take part in three friendlies in coming months and it's likely that a lot of different players will be given looks with no major tournaments on the horizon.

The Gold Cup taught the US national team many lessons about the state of its team. Many of the key players are aging and the defense needs a lot of work.

Grella on Leeds United chopping block
With the English seasons done and dusted, a handful of Americans are set to change addresses for the upcoming year. Jon-Paul Pittman and Seb Harris are signed with new teams, while Marcus Hahnemann, Mike Grella, and Anton Peterlin are still searching for new homes.

American international Hahnemann was not offered a new contract with Wolverhampton after spending most of 2011 stuck on Wolves' bench. The US goalie spent two seasons with Wolves and is now looking for a new team which, as he confirmed in an interview prior to the Gold Cup, he hopes to have in place by late-June. Rumors are rampant that the former Reading star might end up in an MLS uniform soon, with his hometown Seattle the most talked about candidate, though nothing has been confirmed.
