A few notable exclusions to the roster including Juan Aguedelo, Eddie Johnson, and Brek Shea. Although it’s pretty obvious why they didn’t and therefore not very surprising. Julian Green is a newcomer but he was guaranteed a spot as soon as he became a US international (Jurgen definitely at least promised that, if he didn’t promise him a World Cup spot as well). Expect further cuts as Jurgen Klinsmann needs to cut 7 players since teams are only allowed to bring 23-man rosters to the World Cup. It will be an interesting next few weeks in Palo Alto, California to say the least.
