[USA MEN] Attention to the task at hand -- a friendly against Germany on Sunday followed by three World Cup 2014 qualifiers over a span of 12 days -- was diverted for a brief moment on Friday as Concacaf revealed the preliminary rosters for the Gold Cup that will be played on July. All key European-based players currently with the U.S. national team in Washington are missing from the shortlist of 35 players that does include Landon Donovan as well as Carlos Bocanegra.

Neither Donovan, its all-time leading scorer, nor Bocanegra, its longtime captain, has played for the national team in 2013.

Eleven of the 23 players on the U.S. roster for the Germany game are on the Gold Cup roster. (Two others, Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona, are joining the national team following Tijuana's Libertadores Cup game in Brazil on Thursday night but won't dress on Sunday.) The 10 other players on Sunday's game-day roster are all European-based and will head on vacation after the final qualifier June 17 against Honduras in Sandy, Utah.

The roster includes only two uncapped players: forwards Jack McInerney (Philadelphia Union) and Bobby Wood (1860 Munich, Germany)

U.S. preliminary roster:
Goalkeepers: Tally Hall (Houston Dynamo), *Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)
Defenders: Corey Ashe (Houston Dynamo), *DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla, Mexico), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), *Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Carlos Bocanegra (Racing Santander, Spain), *Edgar Castillo (Tijuana, Mexico), Omar Gonzalez (Los Angeles Galaxy), Oguchi Onyewu (Malaga, Spain), Michael Orozco (Puebla, Mexico), *Michael Parkhurst (Augsburg, Germany),
Midfielders: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (Helsingborg, Sweden), Joe Corona (Tijuana, Mexico), *Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg, Norway), *Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders), Benny Feilhaber (Sporting Kansas City), Josh Gatt (Molde, Norway), *Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers, England), Brek Shea (Stoke City, England), Jose Torres (Tigres, Mexico), *Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
Forwards: Will Bruin (Houston Dynamo), Landon Donovan (Los Angeles Galaxy), *Herculez Gomez (Santos, Mexico), Alan Gordon (San Jose Earthquakes), *Eddie Johnson (Seattle Sounders), Jack McInerney (Philadelphia Union), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), Bobby Wood (1860 Munich, Germany).
*On U.S. roster for Germany game.

    Klinsmann -- Thank you for giving Donovan, Bocanegra, and Beckerman another opporunity. Where is Dempsey? What happened to him?

    This is a decent start to the US lineup after klinsmanns debacle after Belgium. Still missing is Freddy adu? Did all the US coaches miss USA and Mexico concaf final where Adu ripped apart the Mexican defense?

    What about the Fagundez kid from Revs? Might be a good time to introduce him to the US system.
