Davies left off U.S. World Cup training camp roster
U.S. men's national team head coach Bob Bradley named his preliminary 30-man roster Tuesday for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The most notable omissions were forward Charlie Davies, who failed in his attempt to make the U.S. World Cup team seven months after nearly being killed in a car crash and midfielder Freddy Adu.
Davies has been sidelined since the Oct. 13 accident. The 23-year-old forward from New Hampshire, Davies was in his first season with Sochaux in France when he was hurt in a crash on the George Washington Parkway in Virginia that killed another passenger.
The players will attend the pre-World Cup training camp beginning May 15 in Princeton, N.J. The final 23-player World Cup roster is due to FIFA by June 1. The Americans leave for South Africa on May 30, and open the World Cup against England on June 12.
The full squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Tim Howard, Marcus Hahnemann, Brad Guzan.
Defenders: Carlos Bocanegra, Jonathan Bornstein, Steve Cherundolo, Jay DeMerit, Clarence Goodson, Chad Marshall, Oguchi Onyewu, Heath Pearce, Jonathan Spector.
Midfielders: DaMarcus Beasley, Alejandro Bedoya, Michael Bradley, Ricardo Clark, Clint Dempsey, Landon Donovan, Maurice Edu, Benny Feilhaber, Stuart Holden, Sacha Kljestan, Robbie Rogers, Jose Francisco Torres.
Forwards: Jozy Altidore, Edson Buddle, Brian Ching, Robbie Findley, Herculez Gomez, Eddie Johnson.
