USA Vs. Argentina: Juan Agudelo, Timothy Chandler Enter As Second-Half Substitutes

It looks like Bob Bradley will roll the dice a bit and install two young players in the second half. Juan Agudelo is starting the second half against Argentina in place of Jermaine Jones. That would seem to imply that the U.S. will go with more of a 4-4-2 set up. Timothy Chandler will also be making his debut for the U.S., entering for Jonathan Spector at right back. 

While Agudelo, just 18, is already making his third appearance for the U.S., Chandler has never even been in camp with the team until now. Chandler is German, but has an American father. He has been playing in the Bundesliga for FC Nuremberg. His selection to the U.S. team was a bit of a surprise to just about anyone who follows the team.

In the early going of the second half, Argentina has continued to apply considerable pressure, but so far the score remains 1-0 in the 52nd minute. The U.S. has also created a couple of decent chances of their own, most notably Maurice Edu just missing an attempt near post.
