Revolution's Joseph to skip Gold Cup

If Grenada is going to surprise a few teams in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, it will have to do so without Sharlie Joseph.

The Revolution midfielder has decided to skip the Gold Cup to stay with the Revolution, the club announced on its official Twitter feed on Tuesday.

Joseph, the Revolution's captain, was named to Grenada's roster after having reported indecision about participating in the tournament. He told MLSSoccer a couple of weeks ago that, "I have to figure out what is more important to me: getting another cap for Grenada or making sure this team is on the right footing, moving forward in the right direction and making sure my personal life is in order."

Grenada is in Group B with Jamaica, Honduras and Guatemala.

What do you think about this development? See any way Grenada qualifies for the quarterfinals without Joseph?
