MOST COMMENTED

[ROSTER] The USA, participating as a guest team in the Copa America, the South American championship, for the first time since finishing fourth in 1995, is sending a young, inexperienced squad to Venezuela, where it opens on Thursday against Argentina. Sixteen players on the 22-man squad have 10 caps or fewer and 14 are under age 25. Uncapped players on the roster are Herculez Gomez, Drew Moor and Marvell Wynne.

"Copa America is going to be a great opportunity for our younger players to gain invaluable experience at the highest international level," said U.S. coach Bob Bradley, who celebrated the Gold Cup title on Sunday. "Playing two major tournaments back-to-back is both a privilege and a difficult challenge in terms of putting together rosters, and this is something we've known all along.

"This group has many of the faces that could play a role in 2008 and 2009 when our focus turns to our ultimate goal of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa."
