Red Bulls Announce Desert Diamond Cup Roster

USA TODAY Sports

Squad set for the pre-season tournament.

Tucson's big pre-season soccer tournament is set to start tomorrow, with the Red Bulls matched up with Real Salt Lake, but before they can take the field, the Red Bulls have to set a roster, which they announced this afternoon.

The roster:

Eric Alexander, M

Brandon Barklage, M/D

Michael Bustamante, M

Tim Cahill, M

Santiago Castano, G

Ian Christianson, M

Ryan Clark, M

Digao, D

Fabian Espindola, F

Thierry Henry, F

Markus Holgersson, D

Ruben Izquierdo, M

Juninho, M

Kosuke Kimura, D

Connor Lade, M/D

Josue Martinez, F

Dax McCarty, M

Ryan Meara, G

Roy Miller, D

Amando Moreno, F

Jamison Olave, D

Heath Pearce, D

Andrew Ribeiro, D

Luis Robles, G

Lloyd Sam, M

Trialists:

Rafhael Domingues, M

Peguy Luyindula, F

Marius Obekop, M

Tyler Ruthven, D

It seems only Bustamante, Clark, Chrisitianson and Ribero remain standing from the team's draft pull, which leaves Stephane Diop, Ben Fisk and Marc Cintron out in the cold. Nicki Patterson, who signed a new deal with the Battery, was apparently sent home, as was Toni Stahl, who was described as one of the biggest mistakes in Philadelphia Union history by our colleagues over at Brotherly Game.

Also, this coming week will give fans a chance to check out tradee Eric Alexander and Luyindula, who joins the Red Bulls after being connected to the team by French newspaper reports almost two months ago.
