U.S. Gold Cup roster: Phase 1 Annapolis camp gives glimpse of who's under consideration

U.S. national team coach Gregg Berhalter has called in 11 players from his provisional Gold Cup list of 40 players to join 10 other invited players, all but one of them U-23 players, for the start of Gold Cup preparations.

The camp opens Sunday in Annapolis, Maryland.

Only the 11 players on the provisional list of 40 players will stay for final Gold Cup preparations, and they will be joined by a core of starters to make up a group of about 26-27 players who will be in the camp as of the weekend of June 1 for friendlies against Jamaica June 5 in Washington, D.C., and Venezuela June 9 in Cincinnati. The deadline to submit the 23-player Gold Cup roster is June 5.

Eight of those 11 Gold Cup-eligible players entering camp on Sunday are uncapped under Berhalter but a minimum of seven of these players will make the final roster, barring unforeseen circumstances.

The U.S. U-23s, who will be taking part in Olympic qualifying, will have their own training camp June 10-16 in Salt Lake City. The only invited player is not a U-23 player: Bournemouth midfielder Emerson Hyndman.

The U-23 group includes one college player. Stanford freshman keeper Andrew Thomas is a former England U-17 -- in cricket. He's eligible to play for the USA, England and Russia.

    Where in Annapolis is the camp taking place and is it open to the public?

    Can we send Guzan home please! Would rather have Hamid than at least 3 of the other keepers there.
