The U.S. starting 11 has been named, according to Sports Illustrated's Grant Wahl, and U.S. Men's National Team coach Bob Bradley has made some changes for Wednesday's crucial match with Algeria: Herculez Gomez replaces Robbie Findley, Maurice Edu is on for Jose Torres and Jonathan Bornstein instead of Oguchi Onyewu. Your surprise likely matches Wahl's:
Gomez in place of Findley, Bornstein (!) in place of Onyewu & Edu in place of Torres in #USA lineup.
While Gomez has had his moments, and should hopefully compliment Jozy Altidore up top, it's the inclusion of Bornstein that is especially troubling, even with Gooch's noticeable defensive lapses in South Africa.
Again, Wahl says it best: "Ton of pressure on oft-criticized Jonathan Bornstein today. Can he handle it?" We'll soon find out.
