TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR have been rocked by the news that Kasey Keller has agreed to join the United States Gold Cup team.

Keller, who looked to have finally usurped prior first choice Neil Sullivan in Glenn Hoddle's plans, was dropped to the bench on Saturday and this has reportedly prompted the goalkeeper's decision to join his national side.

He was not named in their original squad, but will now fly out to join up with his compatriots ahead of their first game in the tournament against the Korean Republic.

If Keller has a good tournament it could put pressure on current US number one Brad Friedel, who has remained in England with club Blackburn Rovers rather than join his nation's squad.
