Brookwood's Sean Johnson on United States roster for CONCACAF Gold Cup

Brookwood's Sean Johnson on United States roster for CONCACAF Gold Cup”

Gold Cup camp begins on June 25 in Nashville, TN. "There's good balance at every position". Kickoff for tonight's Cascadia Cup matchup is at 7:30 p.m. PT, with national coverage on ESPN2 beginning at 7:00 p.m. PT. Fans in the Seattle are invited to a watch party Doyle's Public House in Tacoma (208 St. Helens Ave., Tacoma, WA 98402) featuring Jason Rantz, Pete Fewing and Danny Jackson broadcasting their pre-match, halftime and post-match radio coverage live from the venue. However, coaches of the quarterfinal teams are allowed to make as many as six changes after the group stage. Teams must pull players from their preliminary 40-player roster if they choose to make changes.

GOLDEN TICKET Historically, outstanding individual performances by relative newcomers in the Gold Cup have directly led to a player's inclusion on the upcoming World Cup roster.

The group-phase roster boasts a dozen players with experience in World Cup Qualifying and 11 who have played in a Gold Cup, including six with a Gold Cup medal in their trophy case and 2015 Golden Glove victor Brad Guzan.

Hamid has received several national team call-ups over the years but appeared in only two matches: vs. Venezuela in 2012 and Ireland in 2014.

"Anytime you're in the midst of World Cup Qualifying and very close to not only qualifying, but being at a World Cup a year later, you have to have a competitive environment", Arena said.

Two dual-nationals who made recent switches to the United States are in this team. "These players will push to position themselves to be a big part of things moving forward". "They had long seasons plus the June World Cup qualifiers, so they needed a break and then they need to start their preseasons in July". The Mercer Island native scored his second global goal in a 1-0 friendly win over Jamaica in February, following his first USMNT strike against Mexico on April 15, 2015.

Nine players on the 23-man roster have spent time with clubs in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

Saief played for Israel's Under-19 and Under-21 teams, and his approval to switch to the USA was approved by Federation Internationale de Football Association in the past week. The US has since won twice and drawn twice under Arena.
