Who Should Peter Nowak Start Against Nigeria?

Marvell Wynne will feature on an unchanged backline for the US, but the rest of the team sheet faces questions going into tomorrow’s match/photo from FIFA.com

With Michael Bradley and Freddy Adu suspended but the US needing a draw to guarantee a place in the final eight, what lineup should Peter Nowak use?

Should he revert to a 4-4-2 or stick with the 4-5-1 which has allowed the US to control possession in both matches of the competition thus far?

Here is how I see the 4-5-1 scenario:

———————————Guzan——————————————-

Wynne————–Edu———————Parkhurst——————–Orozco—–

———————–Szetela——————Feilhaber—————————

Davies—————————-Kljestan——————————-Holden—-

———————————McBride—————————————–

or the 4-4-2

———————————Guzan——————————————-

Wynne————–Edu———————Parkhurst——————–Orozco—–

——————————–Feilhaber——————————————

Holden————————–Kljestan———————————Rogers—–

—————–Altidore——————-McBride———————————

Ultimately which choice will Peter Nowak make and what are everyone’s thoughts about player selection for tomorrow’s massive match?
