CHICAGO -- With defender Omar Gonzalez sidelined by a strained left hip, Michael Orozco has been added to the U.S. roster for the Americans' final two World Cup qualifiers.
Gonzalez, Major League Soccer's top defender in 2011, was forced out of the Los Angeles Galaxy's game Sunday at halftime because of the injury. Orozco was to join the Americans on Tuesday in Kansas City, Kan., where they play Jamaica on Friday night.
