[USA MEN] Players on the U.S. men's national team hoping to go to the World Cup will have to wait until the very last minute to know if they're among the lucky 23 with tickets to Brazil. On the eve of the USA-Mexico game at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. (live on ESPN, WatchESPN, UniMas at 11 p.m. ET), U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann told reporters he'll wait until the June 2 deadline to cut the roster down from 30 to 23 players.

Klinsmann has to submit a short list of 30 players to FIFA no later than May 13 and the final 23 from the initial of 30 players by June 2, two weeks before the opening game against Ghana. He plans on taking more than 23 players to a training camp scheduled to begin May 14 in Northern California that will be followed by a three-game series of friendlies. He'll have to submit the final roster to FIFA the day after the second game.

Send-Off Series:
May 27 in San Francisco, Calif.
USA vs. Azerbaijan, 7 pm PT
June 1 in Harrison, N.J.
USA vs. Turkey, 2 pm ET
June 7 in Jacksonville, Fla.
USA vs. Nigeria, 6 p.m. ET

In 2010, Coach Bob Bradley announced his preliminary list of 30 players on May 11 for a camp that opened four days later at his alma mater, Princeton University. He named his final list of 23 players on May 26, after the first game of the two-game send-off series, but six days before the final deadline. Placed in Group G, the USA opens at the World Cup four days later than it did in 2010.

GOALKEEPERS (3): Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago Fire), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).

    I see Klinsmann playing his 4-2-3-1 formation, (Yedlin, Besler, Gonzalez, Parkhurst, Beckerman, Bradley, donovan, dempsey, Zusi, Green). Interested to see how Green and whomever right back is will play.

    I hope he adds Timmy Chandler in the mix. He should be recovered from injury by then and with the practices and friendly games, he should round out into shape by time of WC. He is our best right back option! Put him on USMNT.
