Jürgen Klinsmann stated that the American players called up to the roster to face Belgium and Germany would likely be the same players who would appear on the Gold Cup roster. This plan seems to be flawed because the performance of players against Belgium and Germany should affect who Klinsmann calls up to the United States Men’s National Team for the 2013 Gold Cup.

In light of the performances of certain players in Major League Soccer and other leagues and the fact that Klinsmann announced that Stuart Holden would be on the Gold Cup roster, World Soccer Source proposes the following 23 players for the United States’ Gold Cup roster:

 

Goalkeepers:

 

Brad GUZAN

Luis ROBLES

Dan KENNEDY

 

Center Backs:

 

Gale AGBOSSOUMONDE

George JOHN

Andrew FARRELL

Zach LOYD

 

Outside Backs:

 

Chris KLUTE

Eric LICHAJ

Kofi SARKODIE

Jonathan SPECTOR

 

Defensive Midfielders:

 

Perry KITCHEN (Also a Center Back)

Jeremy HALL

Amobi OKUGO (Also a Center Back)

 

Attacking Midfielders:

 

Benny FEILHABER

Joe CORONA

Stuart HOLDEN

Mix DISKERUD

Joe GYAU

 

Strikers:

 

Juan AGUDELO

Terrence BOYD

Tony TAYLOR

Eddie JOHNSON

 

 

Starting XI Proposal: Guzan; Sarkodie, John, Agbossoumonde, Klute; Kitchen; Holden, Feilhaber, Corona; Boyd, Agudelo
