US Olympic Roster Set

US Olympic qualifying starts tomorrow, the 22nd, against Cuba. They face Canada on Saturday and then El Salvador on Monday (all to be played in Nashville). Top 2 teams move to Kansas City March 31st to take on the top two teams (1st in Group A v 2nd Group B and vice versa) with the finalists both qualifying for the Olympics. Group B is currently comprised of Mexico, T&T, Panama, and Honduras.

US Olympic Roster:
Goalkeepers: Bill Hamid (D.C.), Sean Johnson (Chicago)

Defenders: Perry Kitchen (D.C.), Ike Opara (San Jose), Kofi Sarkodie (Houston), Zarek Valentin (Montreal), Jorge Villafana (Chivas USA), Sheanon Williams (Philadelphia)*

Midfielders: Freddy Adu (Philadelphia), Joe Corona (Tijuana, Mexico), Mix Diskerud (Ghent, Belgium), Jared Jeffrey (Mainz, Germany), Amobi Okugo (Philadelphia), Michael Stephens (Los Angeles)

Forwards: Juan Agudelo (New York), Terrence Boyd (Borussia Dortmund, Germany), Teal Bunbury (Kansas City), Joe Gyau (Hoffenheim, Germany), Brek Shea (Dallas), Tony Taylor (Estoril Praia, Portugal)

* Sheanon was just added to replace Josh Gatt who was recalled by his Norwegian club Molde because of injuries to their roster and lack of depth.

So what do you think? No Gil, Adu somehow is still "under 23", and we've got the Chicago Fire starting keeper on the roster...
