[GOLD CUP COUNTDOWN] The U.S. national team was awaiting the results of midfielder Joshua Gatt's MRI on his knee he injured on Saturday while playing for Norwegian champion Molde. Meanwhile, Houston Dynamo defender Corey Ashe reported to training camp in San Diego, where he will be evaluated by the national team's medical staff for a thigh contusion he picked up in Houston's 2-0 loss to New York on Sunday.

The USA is preparing for Friday's friendly against Guatemala in San Diego (TV: NBC Sports Network, UniMas, 11 pm ET).

Gatt and Ashe, who is listed as day to day, are both on the U.S. Gold Cup roster.

The USA can replace players up until 24 hours before its Gold Cup opener against Belize on July 7. They must come from the list of players on the 35-player preliminary roster submitted to Concacaf last month.

On Monday, German magazine Kicker reported that 1860 Munich coach Alexander Schmidt obtained an agreement from U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann not to take 20-year-old forward Bobby Wood for the Gold Cup so he could prepare for the German second division season with 1860 Munich.

That would leave only two players as possible replacements for the group stage: Benny Feilhaber and Alan Gordon.

All the other field players not on the 23-player roster were not picked because Klinsmann made an agreement with the players or clubs not to pick them for at least the group stage or the entire tournament.

U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).
Not called up: Tally Hall (Houston Dynamo)

DEFENDERS (8): Corey Ashe (Houston Dynamo), DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), Edgar Castillo (Tijuana), Clarence Goodson (Brondby), Oguchi Onyewu (Sporting Lisbon), Michael Orozco Fiscal (Puebla), Michael Parkhurst (Augsburg).
Not called up: Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Carlos Bocanegra (Chivas USA), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders),  Omar Gonzalez (Los Angeles Galaxy).

MIDFIELDERS (7): Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (Helsingborg), Joe Corona (Tijuana), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg), Joshua Gatt (Molde FK), Stuart Holden (Bolton Wanderers), Jose Torres (Tigres).
Not called up: Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Benny Feilhaber (Sporting Kansas City), Brek Shea (Stoke City, England), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City).

FORWARDS (5): Will Bruin (Houston Dynamo), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Herculez Gomez (Tijuana), Jack McInerney (Philadelphia Union), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes).
Not called up: Alan Gordon (San Jose Earthquakes), Eddie Johnson (Seattle Sounders), Bobby Wood (1860 Munich, Germany).

Note: Four players not called up from short list can join the team for the quarterfinals.

July 13 -- USA vs. Cuba 1:30 p.m. MT Rio Tinto Stadium, Sandy, Utah FOX
