Who Would You Start if You Were Bob Bradley?

 Who Would You Start if You Were Bob Bradley?

You’re Bob Bradley and it’s the night before one of the biggest games of your career, and you have millions of USA fans putting the pressure on you to make the correct decisions.

But who would you start for the United States against Algeria tomorrow? And why?

Here’s my starting 11:

————–Howard————–
Cherundolo — DeMerit — Onyewu — Bocanegra
– Donovan — Edu — Bradley –Dempsey
——–Buddle — Gomez——-

The United States side needs a jumpstart in their attack. Out goes Altidore, who hasn’t looked 100 percent, and in comes Herculez Gomez. Out, too, is Robbie Findley who is replaced by Edson Buddle. With Buddle and Gomez up front and the attacking midfielders Dempsey and Donovan, goals are bound to come. As for the rest of the team, I don’t foresee any changes. My only concern is Onyewu and his fitness as well as his form, but there are few adequate replacements to step in and take over his role.

Which USA side would you pick to beat Algeria and make it through to the second round? Click the comments link below to share your opinions.
