The United States returns to another World Cup this summer and is bringing a 23 man squad with an average age of 27.3 and a total of 800 caps.
This is also a World Cup squad that will be without Landon Donovan, a player who has been a past talisman, but who was non-existent through most of their qualifiers. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann decided to leave him at home and bring in players who have played more regularly for the team.
The U.S. is placed in Group G alongside Germany, Ghana, and Portugal. They open their World Cup on Monday, June 16 at 5:00pm ET against Ghana.
