* Provisional Squad lists have been confirmed and published by FIFA last 16 May at 12:00 CET who will represent their nations on the global stage between 12 June – 13 July.
Each coach now has until 2 June to trim down their selection to the final 23-man squad to compete at the tournament. That final side will be announced on 5 June at 12:00 CET on FIFA.com, along with extensive profiles for all the players who will be taking part.
USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann named his 30-man provisional squad from which he’ll select his 23-player FIFA World Cup™ squad.
The most notable omission is D.C. United forward Eddie Johnson, a regular in the United States’ qualifying campaign in North and Central America who has experienced a dip in form.
USA are drawn in Group G along with Ghana, who reached the quarter-finals in the 2010 edition, UEFA EURO 2012 semi-finalists Portugal and one of the favourites for the trophy, Germany. They will kick off their campaign on 16 June against Ghana.
