Headlines
The USMNT has released its squad for the upcoming Gold Cup. It's filled with youngsters and guys getting their long awaited first crack at the national team. The theory is to play a B team for the group

stage and potentially call up some more regulars for the knockout rounds. There are some familiar names, but the main staples we are used to seeing on the roster are sitting this one out. Here's the full roster:

Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan (Atlanta United), Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Sean Johnson (New York City FC)

Defenders: Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Omar Gonzalez (Pachuca), Matt Hedges (FC Dallas), Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest), Matt Miazga (Chelsea), Justin Morrow (Toronto FC), Jorge Villafana (Santos Laguna), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)

Midfielders: Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas), Paul Arriola (Club Tijuana), Alejandro Bedoya (Philadelphia Union), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Dax McCarty (Chicago Fire), Cristian Roldan (Seattle Sounders), Kelyn Rowe (New England Revolution), Kenny Saief (Gent), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)

Forwards: Juan Agudelo (New England Revolution), Dom Dwyer (Sporting Kansas City), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC)

San Jose Earthquakes have up and fired head coach Dominic Kinnear. The club had been pressured to can him earlier in the season, but had since turned their fortunes around slightly and have risen to fifth place in the Western Conference. Kinnear was in his second stint with the team, his first coincided with the original San Jose side's relocation to Houston and his second beginning in 2015. Technical director Chris Leitch will take over for him.
