Brad Guzan is set to be restored as the number one goalkeeper for the USA at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Despite Guzan being deposed as Villa's number one during the latter stages of the Premier League season, US boss Juergen Klinsmann has confirmed that he will be selected in this summer's CONCACAF tournament.
"We are excited to have Brad Guzan back in our group. He will be the starter in the Gold Cup," said Klinsmann in a Q&A on USSoccer.com.
"He is our number one, so it's really important for him to pick up games with us. It's exciting, even if he had some tough weeks at Aston Villa where suddenly the coach for whatever reason decided to put him behind Shay Given.
"That surprised us big time, but he fights through that and he will be sharp and hungry for the long summer."
