USA Vs. Canada, 2012 Olympic Qualifying: Lineups

The United States is without Juan Agudelo, who tore the meniscus in his knee, but that just means that Teal Bunbury gets a shot at striker. His insertion into the lineup is one of only two changes to the U.S. team that pummeled Cuba in their first match of the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament, with the other being Jorge Villafana in for Kofi Sarkodie and Zarek Valentin sliding from left back to right back to make room.

If Canada wants a chance at a point, they are going to need to be a lot better than they were in their opener against El Salvador. They were awful and lucky to take a point. If they can manage another today then the Canucks will be sitting pretty, but that's a lot to ask for.

United States: Bill Hamid; Zarek Valentin, Perry Kitchen, Ike Opara, Jorge Villafana; Jared Jeffrey, Mikkel Diskerud, Joe Corona; Freddy Adu, Teal Bunbury, Brek Shea

Canada: Michael Misiewicz; Andres Fresenga, Russell Teibert, Nana Attakora, Doneil Henry, Kyle Bekker, Samuel Piette, Babayele Sodade, Lucas Cavallini, Philippe Davies, Randy Edwini-Bonsu
