Real Salt Lake captain Kyle Beckerman has been named to the U.S. national team in the Copa America tournament. The 34-year-old has 52 career caps for the USMNT.

The biggest news to come out of 23-roster that was announced on Friday is Goalkeeper Brad Guzan is to start ahead of veteran Tim Howard for the U.S. national team in the Copa America tournament.

The roster features 15 players from the 2014 World Cup team.

Perhaps the biggest surprise was the exclusion of Seattle Sounders forward Jordan Morris. Klinsmann instead named Clint Dempsey, Chris Wondolowski, Bobby Wood and Gyasi Zardes at forward.

The U.S. opens the 16-nation Copa America against Colombia on June 3 in Santa Clara, California. It then plays Costa Rica four days later at Chicago and closes the first round June 11 against Paraguay in Philadelphia.
