EAST HARTFORD, CONN. (HawaiiNewsNow) - United States men's soccer coach Bob Bradley will cut seven players from the team's current 30 man roster Wednesday.

Haleiwa native Brian Ching is expected to make the cut, but will not know for sure if he will be on the U.S. World Cup roster until Bradley trims the roster.

The U.S. lost a friendly to the Czech Republic 4-2 in East Hartford Tuesday.

Ching did not play in the first half, but played the entire second half.  He made some nifty passes setting up scoring opportunities for teammates.

The U.S. rested several of its stars and the 4-2 score may not be indicative of the how the U.S. will fare in the World Cup.

The U.S. opens play in South Africa against England on June 12.
