United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has named his 30 man provisional squad for the World Cup.

The 49 year-old, who surprisingly overlooked Eddie Johnson and Sacha Kljestan, expects competition to be fierce for a place in his final 23 and hopes all the players chosen put forward a strong case for their inclusion.

"There is competition in every position, and these next couple of weeks will allow us to make the final determinations on the best 23-man unit to represent the United States in the World Cup,” he said, as reported by FIFA.com.

The 30 players selected will have a training camp at Stanford University, before Klinsmann names his definitive squad on June 2.
