It turns out, the U.S. Men’s National Team roster will not be unveiled sooner than expected.

U.S. Soccer announced Thursday morning via Twitter that the scheduled release of Jurgen Klinsmann’s roster for the Americans’ final pair of 2014 World Cup qualifiers was pushed back from Thursday to the weekend due to injury concerns. No word yet as to which day the roster will come out on.

Regardless of when the roster announcement is, players are expected to begin gathering in Kansas City on Sunday. The U.S., which is already qualified for next summer’s World Cup in Brazil, is set to host Jamaica at Sporting Park on Oct. 11 before wrapping up its qualifying campaign with a game in Panama four days later.

Disappointed by the roster announcement delay? Don’t really mind too much? Who do you think are the injury concerns that may have altered the scheduled announcement?
