Obviously we’ll get more into detail previewing the match in this weeks American Soccer Show but on first look I believe the US should go with a 4-2-3-1 look. The injury to Steve Cherundolo for Hanover against Hamburg yesterday forces either Drew Moor to start or Michael Parkhurst to push outside. Otherwise Bradley has a full compliment of players to choose from, except of course the injured DaMarcus Beasley and the Fulham’s newly signed striker Eddie Johnson.

This is the lineup I would enter the game with and subs are in 2nd half parenthesis:


Parkhurst  Robinson  Bocanegra  Pearce

Clark Bradley

Donovan Adu Convey

Possible second half subs:

  • Guzan for Howard at halftime
  • Holden or Davis for Convey at halftime
  • Edu for Clark at about minute 65
  • Feilhaber for Adu, pushing Donovan back inside to play attacking midfield. This sub should come in the final 20 minutes
  • Moor for Parkhurst possibly late
  • Corrales for Pearce late
  • Altidore for Dempsey late
  • Onyewu for Robinson late

Basically the first four subs I would make and see if their is a need for any of the other four.

Your thoughts as always are welcome. What do our readers think should be the US lineup Wednesday?
