When do they announce who is gonna be the 3 players over 23 to be on the roster???

I think they should take Donovan, Howard, and a defender like Bocanegra or someone like that

The US Federation made clear what its priority is: World Cup Qualifications matches and the game in Guatemala will take place at the same time of the Olympics; on the other hand clubs are obligated to release players for FIFA official competitions but not players over 23 for the Olympics. With that said Tim Howard will not be released by Everton and I doubt that Bocanegra will leave training with Rennes risking losing a spot as a starter. Donovan is a must for Bradley for the game in Guatemala. Of the three mentioned above there is no real chance for any.

More realistic candidates are:

- Brian Mc Bride (without club at the moment but returning to MLS) it will be a great gift on the verge of ending his career.

- Casey Keller (without a club at the moment but rumored to be heading to Germany as back up keeper) he will not have a problem on getting a release and it will be also a tribute to his services giving him the chance to represent the US in the Olympics.

- The third player is an open question mark, it could be one MLS player with a high profile but not a serious contender for the US NT in World Cup qualification; I can think of Taylor Twellman or even Josh Wolff who just returned to MLS from Germany.
