If it ain't broke, don't fix it? The United States looked good in their Gold Cup quarterfinal match starting with Landon Donovan on the bench, and as a result, they're doing it again. It's possible that this is more of a positive than a negative reflection on Donovan; Bob Bradley might think his team has the best possible chance to win with Donovan's speed off the bench, but it's still slightly surprising. Donovan was benched last game because of a flight that got in late, but there's no reason to believe that he isn't 100 percent fit for this match. Here are the lineups.
United States lineup: Howard; Lichaj, Bocanegra, Goodson, Cherundolo; Bradley, Jones; Dempsey, Kljestan, Bedoya; Agudelo
Panama lineup: Penedo; Baloy, Henriquez, Torres, Machado, Gomez, Barahona, Henriquez, Cooper, Quintero, Tejada
Kickoff is at 7:00 pm ET, 6:00 pm local time from Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX. If you're wondering where Blas Perez is, he's suspended. That should help the United States' cause considerably, but they still shouldn't take Panama lightly.
