United States men's national soccer team coach Bob Bradley named his 23-man CONCACAF Gold Cup roster on Monday afternoon.

"We have said since the start of the new cycle that winning the Gold Cup this year is a top priority, and that was our focus as we built this roster," Bradley said. "We have a very experienced group, and we know that in a tournament like this all 23 players will need to contribute in order for us to be successful."

The Gold Cup takes place from June 5th though the 25th in 13 venues across America, with the U.S. gathering for initial training on May 26 in Cary, N.C., followed by a friendly with Spain on June 4.

The USA will begin Group play on June 7 against Canada in Detroit before playing Panama on June 11 in Tampa, Fla. The group stage will end for the U.S. on June 14 against Guadeloupe in Kansas City.

The winner of the 2011 Gold Cup will represent CONCACAF at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil.
