Arnaud and Conrad on Gold Cup Roster

The US has released their 23 man roster for the upcoming Gold Cup. Davy Arnaud was on the preliminary roster for the competition and is also on the final 23 man roster for the tournament. Joining Arnaud on the roster, is Wizards captain, Jimmy Conrad. Conrad is earning his first call up since 2008. It's a bit surprising to see Conrad get the call up with so much time since his last call up, along with the rumors that him and Coach Bradley had a falling out. Should the USA reach the finals, the two could miss as many as 7 games (3 league, 3 Open Cup, and SuperLiga semifinal).

This makes 3 Wizards that have been called up for the Gold Cup this year, as Roger Espinoza will be representing Honduras in the tournament. It's going to put a major strain on the Wizards, but a great honor for those 3.
