Bradley Announces 30-Man Roster

With our apologies to Chuck D, here are the 30 men that remain in contention for the 23 spots available on the plane to South Africa. While Chuck won’t be joining the boys in Princeton, NJ for May camp, there remains a chance that he can fulfill his goal of playing in the World Cup if an injury occurs prior to the first match. We can only hope.

The Roster

Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan (Aston Villa, England), Marcus Hahnemann (Wolverhampton, England), Tim Howard (Everton, England).

Defenders: Carlos Bocanegra (Rennes, France), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Steve Cherundolo (Hannover, Germany), Jay DeMerit (Watford, England), Clarence Goodson (IK Start, Norway), Chad Marshall (Columbus), Oguchi Onyewu (AC Milan, Italy), Heath Pearce (Dallas), Jonathan Spector (West Ham, England).

Midfielders: DaMarcus Beasley (Glasgow Rangers, Scotland), Alejandro Bedoya (Orebro, Sweden), Michael Bradley (Borussia Moenchengladbach, Germany), Ricardo Clark (Eintracht Frankfurt, Germany), Clint Dempsey (Fulham, England), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles), Maurice Edu (Glasgow Rangers, Scotland), Benny Feilhaber (AGF Aarhus, Denmark), Stuart Holden (Bolton, England), Sacha Kljestan (Chivas USA), Robbie Rogers (Columbus), Jose Torres (Pachuca, Mexico).

Forwards: Jozy Altidore (Hull, England), Edson Buddle (Los Angeles), Brian Ching (Houston), Robbie Findley (Salt Lake), Herculez Gomez (Puebla, Mexico), Eddie Johnson (Aris, Greece).

Much more to come later on who is in and who will be buying their own plane ticket to South Africa.

Daniel Seco

  • Is it too late to add Kevin Durant to the goalkeepers?

  • Tim


  • Daniel Seco

    I hate the Edson Buddle and Herculez Gomez sexy picks… Ugh, just disgusting. Where the fuck is Chuck D?

    I’m furious.

  • I can’t believe he left Chuck D off and is bringing Eddie Johnson. Those were some valuable goals for EJ in the Greek league.

    Robbie Rogers gets the “this guy is absolutely not making the final cut” midfield spot ahead of Kyle Beckerman?! Come on, throw Dreads a bone! He wants to watch some friendlies from the bench too!

  • Daniel Seco

    Beckerman is the man. Though I think he caught me staring at his dreads for a second too long during an interview.

  • Puck

    Not taking Chuck D was the right move.

    He was clearly not fit, and taking him now only makes the choice for the 23 man roster that much more difficult. Even if he was cleared for contact/play in June, could we really expect him to be the Chuck D during the Confed Cup…..the answer is no.

    Expect of post of Jon and I fighting about this issue soon.
