Rimando, Beckerman make Gold Cup roster for U.S.

Nick Rimando and Kyle Beckerman have been called up for the United States roster for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

This isn't a surprise — the two have been basically a lock for the Gold Cup since, well, the last Gold Cup. But they've now officially made the U.S. roster, joining Alvaro Saborio, Elias Vasquez and Demar Phillips in the tournament.

They'll be gone for a fair amount of time, which will surely test the team as they look to build on a solid win over Sporting Kansas City.
