[WORLD CUP 2010] Red-hot FC Dallas striker Kenny Cooper and Freddy Adu are notable omissions on U.S. coach Bob Bradley's 17-man roster for the first World Cup qualifying game of the semifinal group round, Aug. 20 at Guatemala. Adu played in the USA's first two qualifying games, the two-leg win over Barbados. Cooper has 13 MLS goals this season. Bradley will add one more player to the roster.

The team will gather in Miami beginning on Aug. 17 and will depart for Guatemala City the following day.

Four members of the Olympic team that was ousted in the first round in China are in Bradley's squad: his son, Michael Bradley, Sacha Kljestan, Maurice Edu and goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Eleven players on the roster are European-based, including keeper Tim Howard, who missed the qualifiers against Barbados with a back injury.

The USA has a 10-4-5 win-loss-tie record against Guatemala and has shut out the Chapines in their last six games.

The USA is unbeaten against Guatemala in World Cup qualifying.
