Bruce Arena vowed there would be changes to the U.S. Men’s National Team lineup, and there definitely are. In fact, Arena made seven switches from Thursday’s squad that knocked off Trinidad and Tobago 2-0.
Christian Pulisic, Michael Bradley, Geoff Cameron and DeAndre Yedlin are the only holdovers from the home victory on Thursday night. Brad Guzan steps into goal for Tim Howard and a back three of center backs Tim Ream, Omar Gonzalez and Cameron highlights what looks to be a 3-4-3 formation that may switch to a back five when the USMNT defends.
The USMNT doesn’t have to win, or even draw, at the Estadio Azteca against its biggest rival, but Arena’s squad is expected to be competitive while seeking revenge for the loss in Columbus to open the Hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying.
