USMNT NAMES PRELIMINARY GC ROSTER
BRIAN SCIARETTA - Friday, May 31, 2013
CONCACAF today revealed the 35 player preliminary rosters for each of the Gold Cup teams this summer and U.S coach Jurgen Klinsmann is bringing an experienced squad.

The most noteworthy inclusions on the roster are veterans Oguchi Onyewu and Landon Donovan. Onyewu continues to struggle for playing time after moving to Malaga this summer and Donovan recently returned to the Galaxy after taking four months off to ponder his future in the sport.

The roster also includes only three players who have never been to a U.S national team camp. The leading name is Philadelphia Union forward Jack McInerney who currently is tied for the scoring lead in MLS. Bobby Wood is also on the roster as he returned to first team action with 1860 Munich after missing a long period of time due to a knee injury. Corey Ashe, who was called up to the U.S national team but never arrived in camp due to an injury, is the last potential U.S debutant.

With the recent news that the winners of the Gold Cups in each of the cycles would compete in a playoff for the region's Confederation Cup berth, the U.S team is bringing a more experienced roster than usual for this Gold Cup (previously without a Gold Cup spot on the line).
