USA Vs. Guatemala, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Guatemala Makes Three Subs At Halftime

Guatemala is going all-in at halftime, making all three of their substitutions and leaving them without any more for the rest of the match. Manuel Leon came on for Jose Manuel Contreras, Marco Pappa entered for Carlos Figueroa and Dwight Pezzarossi also came into the match, replacing Mario Rodriguez.

The big move is obviously bringing in Pappa. He is one of, if not the best Guatemalan players and his absence from the starting lineup was puzzling. He is on now, though, and sure to challenge a United States defense that was shaky in the first half. With Steve Cherundolo struggling in the first half, Pappa is sure to go right at him with every opportunity.

The danger here for Guatemala is if someone gets hurt. They are out of subs and would then have to play down a man the rest of the way.
