U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann will announce on Monday the 30 players he will take to the two-week World Cup training camp at Stanford University. All teams have until Tuesday to submit their short lists from which they take 23 players to Brazil.
I’ve collected the 23 or 30-man rosters that some familiar names have come up including Grant Wahl, Taylor Twellman, Shin Guardian and others. Check it out below and feel free to offer your comments. I’ll update it after the official announcement that comes Monday to see how our pundits did. I’ve also offered a reminder of upcoming events related to the final World Cup tuneup. Are you ready?
U.S. Soccer Send-Off Series Schedule is a series of events and opportunities to connect with the USA during training camp and the three-match Send-Off Series (May 27-June 7).

Where the Pundit identified a position, e.g. CM that is tagged. The other element is if they identified a list of 23 and list of 30, I identified the individuals considered outside the final 23 with a 30tag attached to their position. The players with BLUE background are unanimous choices of which there are 18.
