CHAD WINGER - Tuesday, May 11, 2010
Charlie Davies will not be heading to South Africa as his name was not on the provisional 30-man World Cup roster released by US head coach Bob Bradley.
Davies was not given medical clearance by French club Sochaux and will not be able to fulfill his near-miraculous recovery from October's car crash.
There were few other surprises on the list, with the possible exception of Real Salt Lake's Robbie Findley or Columbus Crew defender Chad Marshall.
Injured Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones did not make the list, while long-term knee victim Oguchi Onyewu was added to the roster.
All 30 players will now report to Princeton, New Jersey for a week-long camp from May 17-23 ahead of two friendlies - against the Czech Republic on May 25th in Hartford, Connecticut and Turkey on May 29th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Bradley will need to pare down his submission to a 23-man final roster by June 1.
