USA Vs. Canada, Gold Cup 2011: Chris Wondolowski On, Juan Agudelo Off

The United States has made their first substitution of the match and it is the 18-year-old Juan Agudelo coming off for Chris Wondolowski in a striker for striker switch. It is not a strange substitution at all and makes complete sense to get Agudelo off. While he has been solid in the match, he has spent most of the season coming off the bench for the New York Red Bulls and is simply not in good enough shape to go 90 minutes right now so 63 minutes will have to do.

With Wondolowski coming on, the U.S. has a hot striker who has been taking advantage of every chance he has gotten for the San Jose Earthquakes of late. That is good for a team that has struggled to finish their chance of late and again in this match. He doesn't have an international goal so this could be the perfect opportunity to get that goal and put the U.S. 3-0 up.
