Donovan back with US but not Bocanegra

(Continued)

Bocanegra, who turned 34 last month, has not appeared for the U.S. since a November exhibition at Russia but was dressed for February's qualifier at Honduras. Klinsmann said this spring that Bocanegra had dropped out of the top four of American central defenders and he no longer saw him as a left back.

Onyewu, 32, made just two league appearances and nine overall for Malaga last season. He has not played for the U.S. since the opening qualifier against Antigua in June last year.

Six players cut saw time during three World Cup qualifiers in June: defenders Matt Besler, Brad Evans and Omar Gonzalez; midfielders Brad Davis and Graham Zusi; and forward Eddie Johnson.

Also cut were goalkeeper Toby Hall; midfielders Benny Feilhaber and Brek Shea; and forwards Alan Gordon and Bobby Wood. As many os four of the dropped players can be added to the active roster after the group stage.

Ten players on the roster are from Major League Soccer, seven from European clubs and six from Mexican teams.

The Americans play Guatemala in an exhibition at San Diego on July 5,. then open the tournament against Belize at Portland, Ore., on July 9. They play Cuba at Salt Lake City four days later and close the first round against Costa Rica at East Hartford, Conn., on July 16.

The winners of the 2013 and 2015 Gold Cups will meet in a playoff for a berth in the 2017 Confederations Cup.

The roster:

Goalkeepers: Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (Chicago), Nick Rimando (Salt Lake)

Defenders: Corey Ashe (Houston), DaMarcus Beasley (Puebla, Mexico), Tony Beltran (Salt Lake), Edgar Castillo (Tijuana, Mexico), Clarence Goodson (Brondby, Denmark), Oguchi Onyewu (Malaga, Spain), Michael Orozco (Puebla, Mexico), Michael Parkhurst (Augsburg, Germany)

Midfielders: Kyle Beckerman (Salt Lake), Alejandro Bedoya (Helsinborg, Sweden), Joe Corona (Tijuana, Mexico), Mix Diskerud (Rosenborg, Norway), Joshua Gatt (Molde, Norway), Stuart Holden (Bolton, England), Jose Torres (Tigres, Mexico)
