Bob Bradley announced 30-man preliminary roster for World Cup 2010

Sorry, kids, “The Bob” left out Freddy Adu.  No Santino Quaranta either — despite that lovely piece ESPN did on him last week during the D.C. United-Kansas City match — and, of course, sad as it is, Charlie Davies couldn’t quite get fit in time to make the trip to South Africa.

There’s still one final cut to go.  This list of 30 has to be trimmed to 23 on June 1st, and, though there’s probably only a handful of truly “open” spots, I’m sure nearly every player on here will have a chance to make an impression during USA’s World Cup warm-ups against the Czech Repulic (May 25th, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN) and Turkey (May 29th, 2 p.m. ET, ESPN 2).

We plan on taking a slightly more in depth look at the U.S. squad once the final roster is determined, but for now you can find the 30 players set for training camp after the jump…
