Coming off of their 3-1 win over Puerto Rico on Sunday, the U.S. Men’s National Team will take on a more difficult opponent Wednesday night when they face Ecuador.
The U.S. roster will be expanded against their CONMEBOL counterpart, now including MLS players to go along with the European and Mexican-based members. Captain Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey and Gyasi Zardes will each figure into the team’s starting attack, while fans will look for 17-year-old winger Christian Pulisic to make an appearance.
Geoff Cameron’s absence at center back gives D.C. United defender Steve Birnbaum the starting nod next to John Brooks. Birnbaum will be looking for a strong performance against a quick, technical Ecuadorian squad as an audition in the event that Cameron can’t start at Copa America.
