USA Vs. Mexico, 2011 Friendly: Lineups

The Jurgen Klinsmann era with the United States men's national soccer team has begun, and his first lineup looks odd and is scaring people. Of course, it's just a friendly and one without a full strength squad at that, but that won't stop people from going "What the eff?" 'Chepo' Jose Manuel de la Torre's lineup is also stupid, as Sinha has replaced Giovani dos Santos in the starting lineup. You know, because Chepo really needs to make sure he gets a good look at 35-year-old Sinha ahead of World Cup qualifying. I hate friendlies. Here are your lineups.

United States lineup: Howard; Cherundolo, Orozco Fiscal, Bocanegra, Castillo; Jones, Beckerman; Donovan, Bradley, Torres; Buddle

Subs: Hamid, Loyd, Pearce, Clark, Rogers, Shea, Agudelo

Mexico lineup: Ochoa; Juárez, Márquez, Moreno, Salcido; Torrado; Castro, Guardado, Sinha, Barrera; Peralta

Subs: Dos Santos, Rodríguez, Arellano, Aquino, Talavera, Zavala, Torres Nilo, Bermúdez, Águilar

This lineup for the USA appears to feature Michael Bradley as a central attacking midfielder and Jose Fransisco Torres as a winger. God help us all.

(It's only a friendly)
