Hopefully the next time the US plays a game, we'll find out who is on the squad before the entire team is all but together. The US is in Krakow for a match against Poland but the roster wasn't revealed until around 72 hours before the start of the match.
The Under-23's Olympic qualifying games probably had something to do with the timing of the roster announcement, as it was not until Saturday that the roster was posted on US Soccer's Web site.
Only three MLS players made the cut, and it's no surprise two of them came from Houston who just played two CONCACAF Champions Cup quarterfinal matches. Match fitness is lacking across MLS and it wouldn't have made much sense to take guys who, in some cases, haven't played a competitive game in months.
Landon Donovan is the exception, of course.
