The six replacements are Tim Howard, Jesse Gonzalez, Michael Bradley, Nagbe, Altidore, and Clint Dempsey.

Four of the most experienced players in the current U.S. MNT player pool, Altidore, Bradley Dempsey and Howard each bring more than 100 caps worth of global seasoning to the U.S. squad for the Knockout Round.

"The players leaving all made a good impression", Arena said, "and I'm optimistic for their future with the national team program".

Massive pipe falls on van, only minor injuries in incident
It came down right in the middle of his van. "But they came out and said, 'Nope, he's only got scratches.' It's insane ". The Florida Highway Patrol says a semi carrying scrap metal overturned on an overpass ramp on Interstate 4.

Former Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur forward Dempsey, 34, has 56 career goals in 134 caps for the USA squad, one shy of Donovan's all-time record, while former Everton and Manchester United goalkeeper Howard, 38, has made 115 appearances for the U.S. side.

Each team is allowed to make up to six changes in the 24 hours after finishing the group stage, and the additions must come from the 40-man preliminary roster submitted in early June. Bedoya is expecting the birth of his second child to take place this week and thus was always expected to depart.

Arena kept players who struggled badly or made little impact-including Paul Arriola, Gyasi Zardes, Justin Morrow, and Chris Pontius-but cut two Yanks who appeared to be game-changers.

Manchester United handed huge boost in surprise bid to sign PSG star
Manchester United have stepped up their interest in Paris Saint-Germain star Serge Aurier , according to reports in France. Matteo Darmian has been linked with a transfer to Italy, and Mourinho is keen on strengthening his options at the back.

What was unexpected about the announcement is the players Arena chose to send back to their club teams. But Arena's addition of Nagbe, a left wing, and his trust in Gyasi Zardes, his former pupil with the Los Angeles Galaxy, left Rowe as the odd man out. "Those are players we're obviously going to continue to keep an eye on" ahead of World Cup qualifiers in September and October, and the World Cup next summer in Russian Federation. Howard, Bradley, Dempsey and Altidore are the spine of the full-strength USMNT lineup. Nagbe (17 matches) has become a regular starter in World Cup qualifying.

Everyone in camp except Johnson started at least one match. Bedoya, who wore the captain's armband on Saturday night, had two assists in the game. The Annandale native will end up being the only goalkeeper to spend the entire month with Arena, a positive sign for his World Cup outlook. "When you play so many less experienced and younger players together, it's hard".

It is certainly understandable that their respective MLS sides, who are in the middle of their league season, would want them back, but it felt like each of them earned the opportunity to get a shot at playing time in the knockout round.
