Eddie Johnson, Brad Evans left off USMNT’s Gold Cup roster for the group stage

US Centennial shield-01-1.jpgSounders FC’s Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans were on the U.S. national team’s 35-man preliminary roster for the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup, but neither was on the final 23-man list released Thursday for the tournament’s group stage.

The Gold Cup format allows for four players from the preliminary list to be added to the team for the start of the knockout rounds, so that could be a possibility down the road.

Some notable named included are Landon Donovan, Herculez Gomez, Oguchi Onyewu, DaMarcus Beasley, Jose Torres, Stuart Holden, Chris Wondolowski and Jack McInerney.

One big name left off is Carlos Bocanegra, leading some to think the former captain might announce his international retirement. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann explained some of his decisions on the federation website.

The Gold Cup winner will have a chance to play in the 2017 Confederations Cup. The tournament will make a stop in Seattle on July 11 for games between Panama-Martinique and Mexico-Canada at CenturyLink Field.

Here is the full list of 23 for the group stage:

GOALKEEPERS (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

DEFENDERS (8): Corey Ashe (Houston Dynamo), DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), Edgar Castillo (Club Tijuana), Clarence Goodson (Brondby), Oguchi Onyewu (Malaga), Michael Orozco Fiscal (Puebla), Michael Parkhurst (FC Augsburg)
