Mexico Vs. USA 2012: Graham Zusi In For Danny Williams

Graham Zusi is in! Yaaaaay! He's in as a right midfielder. Boooooo! Zusi's had a great couple of seasons as the attacking-most central midfielder in Sporting Kansas City's midfield three, but he's not going to get an opportunity to play that position at the moment. Zusi has replaced Danny Williams, who was playing on the right side of midfield.

Zusi has the attributes to play on the wing, but it would just be nice to see him get a run in his natural position. Of course, Jurgen Klinsmann just switched to a 4-4-2 at halftime, so that isn't entirely possible.

As for what's happening on the pitch so far in the second half, there hasn't been a ton of action. Mexico's best foray forward was sniffed out by Geoff Cameron, who did a great job to beat Javier Hernandez to a dangerous ball and head clear. The United States' best attack was probably Kyle Beckerman attempting to chip Guillermo Ochoa from 40 yards. That's not a good thing.
