Bill Hamid Makes The USMNT Gold Cup Roster

D.C. United's starting goalkeeper Bill Hamid will be with the United States national team for this summer's Gold Cup.

The rumors started yesterday, and were confirmed this morning: Jürgen Klinsmann named D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid to the US roster for the upcoming Gold Cup, CONCACAF's continental championship. The US squad will convene in San Diego on July 1st to begin preparations for the tournament, which for the USMNT will kick off on July 9th against Belize in Portland.

The US will unsurprisingly be heavy favorites to go to the final, which would mean Hamid would likely be unavailable through July 28th. However, in past Gold Cups, back-up goalkeepers have been occasionally made available to their MLS club, and with Nick Rimando almost certainly the #1 for this tournament, there is at least a small chance that Hamid will pop in for a game. However, the most likely outcome is that Joe Willis will be starting games throughout July, with Andrew Dykstra sure to be recalled from his loan with the Richmond Kickers.

If Hamid does indeed miss the entire month of July, United will be without him for the following matches:

Seattle Sounders (away, July 3rd)
Colorado Rapids (away, July 7th)
Chivas Guadalajara (home friendly, July 12th)
Chicago Fire (away, July 20th)
New England Revolution (home, July 27th)

Here is the complete 23-man roster from US Soccer. Feel free to treat this as an open thread discussing Hamid's call-up and the USMNT roster in general.
