[GOLD CUP]The USA's 23-man roster for the Gold Cup (July 3-26) includes seven players who have never seen national team action. Just six players in the squad have made more than 10 U.S. appearances.

Only four players -- Freddy Adu, Charlie Davies, Heath Pearceand Luis Robles-- from the Confederations Cup roster remain with the team, which faces Grenada, Honduras and Haiti in group play.

The most experienced players on the Gold Cup roster are
Brian Chingand Steve Cherundolo, who have recently recovered from injury.

Notable by their absence are national team regulars based in Europe who are playing in the Confederations Cup -
Oguchi Onyewu, Tim Howard, Clint Dempsey, Carlos Bocanegra, Michael Bradley- but also omitted isLandon Donovan, who will return to the Galaxy after Sunday's final in Johannesburg.

Ching and Cherundolo played in the 2007 and 2005 Gold Cup victories respectively. The only other returnee from the 2007 team is former New England defender
Michael Parkurst, and back from the '05 group are Kansas City defenderJimmy Conradand D.C. United attackerSantino Quaranta.

There's almost no experience in the nets: the three keepers have a combined total of two U.S. appearances.
