Bradley to Reveal Final US Roster Tomorrow


USA head coach Bob Bradley will reveal this final 23-man roster that will go to South Africa and play England, Algeria and Slovenia in Group C of the World Cup.

Bradley will announce the pics during a live broadcast of ESPN’s daytime SportsCenter tomorrow, May 26th. All the players selected for the tournament in South Africa will be on the ESPN campus for the announcement that will take place during the 10am PT hour of the show.

Should Bradley not already have decided on the names, the competing players will have one remaining opportunity to impress him when USA play Czech Republic tonight at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn. Kickoff is 5pm PT, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN and Galavision.

The Rules

Tournament rules require that the final 23-man roster be submitted by June 1 to FIFA. A preliminary list of 30 players had to be submitted by May 11 by all 32 teams. According to a new regulation, the 23 players on the final roster must come from the original preliminary roster. Once the rosters are finalized, a team may replace an injured player up to 24 hours prior to their first match of the tournament. In this case, the replacement player does not have to be selected from the 30-man preliminary list.
