U.S. roster decisions upcoming next week
PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) – When the U.S. plays the Czech Republic on Tuesday night, coach Bob Bradley will use the game to make his final roster decisions more than to test a starting 11 for possible use in next month’s World Cup opener against England.
All 30 players on the U.S. preliminary roster are in training camp this week, and Bradley hopes to whittle the group to the final 23 after the game in East Hartford, Conn.
“We have some ideas for sure, but there are still some decisions that need to get made,” he said Wednesday. “The idea of having 30 people in camp gives people an opportunity to show where they are and … (if) you had another injury or something, then you’ve got people prepared.”
All 30 players were in training camp for the first time.
