CHICAGO (AP) — John Sargent has been dropped from the U.S. roster for the CONCACAF Gold Cup after being picked to train with the national team instead of joining the Americans at the Under-20 World Cup.

The 19-year-old forward failed to convert any chances in Wednesday's 1-0 exhibition loss to Jamaica and was among seven cuts Thursday.

The U.S. has another exhibition against Venezuela on Sunday at Cincinnati and opens its Gold Cup title defense against Guyana on June 18 at St. Paul, Minnesota. It will be the Americans' first competitive match in 20 months.

They face Trinidad on June 22 at Cleveland and complete group play against Panama on June 26 at Kansas City, Kansas.
