Team USA Winter Training Camp Roster

US Soccer will hold the now annual Team USA winter training camp next month for players currently out of season.

This year it will run from Jan 4 to the game against Honduras on Jan 23, with the team training in suburban Los Angeles at the Home Depot Center.

Here is the 30 player roster:

Kevin Hartman - Kansas City Wizards
Troy Perkins - Valerenga
Nick Rimando - Real Salt Lake
Zach Thornton - Chivas USA
Kevin Alston - New England Revolution
Jonathan Bornstein - Chivas USA
Jimmy Conrad - Kansas City Wizards
Omar Gonzalez - Los Angeles Galaxy
Clarence Goodson - IK Start
Chad Marshall - Columbus Crew
Heath Pearce - FC Dallas
Marvell Wynne - Toronto FC
Kyle Beckerman - Real Salt Lake
Alejandro Bedoya - Orebro
Geoff Cameron - Houston Dynamo
Brad Davis - Houston Dynamo
Brad Evans - Seattle Sounders
Benny Feilhaber - AGF Aarhus
Eddie Gaven - Columbus Crew
Sacha Kljestan - Chivas USA
Jeff Larentowicz - New England Revolution
Dax McCarty - FC Dallas
Brandon McDonald - San Jose Earthquakes
Chris Pontius - DC United
Robbie Rogers - Columbus Crew
Justin Braun - Chivas USA
Conor Casey - Colorado Rapids
Jeff Cunningham - FC Dallas
Robbie Findley - Real Salt Lake
Marcus Tracy - AaB Aalborg

(They listed Brandon McDonald as a forward, and I moved him to midfield.)

OK, so who are the surprises?

And who has been left off?
-I can only assume that they figure Stuart Holden & Ricardo Clark are headed to Europe in January, and that is why they are not included.
-Three other European players that come to mind are:
Michael Parkhurst - Nordsjaelland
Chris Rolfe - AaB Aalborg
Hunter Freeman - IK Start - (out due to a surgical procedure - thanks to Prairie for the info)
Eric Brunner - Columbus Crew
Mikkel Diskerud - Stabaek
Chris Seitz - Philadelphia Union
Adin Brown - Aalesund
Dan Califf - Philadelphia Union
Jeremiah White - no club
Brian Ching - Houston Dynamo - recovering from surgery
Frankie Hejduk - Columbus Crew
Sean Franklin - Los Angeles Galaxy

Am I the only one that is not surprised with the exclusion of the Human Vaesectomy?
