Vasquez, Phillips, Saborio all named to Gold Cup rosters

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Real Salt Lake's lineups will take a markedly different look in July, with Guatemala's Elias Vasquez, Jamaica's Demar Phillips, and Costa Rica's Alvaro Saborio named to their countries' rosters.

Those three are very likely to be joined by Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando, who have been named to the United States 35-man preliminary roster and, you'd imagine, would make the final squad without much controversy.

That would leave RSL without six from the time national team camps start — one would anticipate those starting sometime around the start of July with the first matches on July =7 — to shortly after their teams exit the Cup, which could be anything from July 16 to July 26, depending on their finishing position in the knockout tournament.
