Jürgen Klinsmann has opted to replace Graham Zusi with Eddie Johnson and Jermaine Jones with Geoff Cameron, keeping his other nine players unchanged. Zusi is suspended, while Jones has a concussion. Cameron might be the closest thing to a like-for-like change for Jones physically and stylistically, but has not played in the center of midfield regularly over the last two years. Johnson usually plays as a striker for Seattle Sounders, but has played on the wing for the United States before.
Panama are without their best striker, Blas Perez.
United States starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Tim Howard; DaMarcus Beasley, Matt Besler, Omar Gonzalez, Brad Evans; Michael Bradley, Geoff Cameron; Fabian Johnson, Clint Dempsey, Eddie Johnson; Jozy Altidore
Panama lineup: Penedo; Parris, Baloy, Torres, Rodriguez; Cooper, Godoy, Quintero; Sanchez, Tejeda, Henriquez #usmnt— Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle) June 12, 2013
Kickoff is at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN and Univision Deportes in the United States. Because of the late start in the Mexico-Costa Rica game, the match may start on ESPN2.
