The Gold Cup knockout stages are here for the U.S. Men’s National Team, and Bruce Arena has deployed the big guns for Wednesday’s quarterfinal match.
Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, Tim Howard and Darlington Nagbe join the USMNT lineup for Wednesday’s quarterfinal match against El Salvador. The four were called up following the group stage, joining Jesse Gonzalez, who was named to the bench.
The match could be a particularly memorable one for Dempsey as he has the chance to equal Landon Donovan atop the USMNT’s all-time goalscoring chart. In defense, Eric Lichaj and Justin Morrow join the lineup at the fullback position while Omar Gonzalez and Matt Hedges anchor the defense.
