Jurgen Klinsmann has made significant changes to his lineup to face Mexico, with some moves being forced and others being tactical switches for the United States boss. Fabian Johnson will play right back ahead of Michael Orozco-Fiscal and Michael Parkhurst, while Clarence Goodson slots right into central defense after joining the team a couple of days ago. Eddie Johnson starts along with Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan. Any of the three could play center forward, but put your money on Dempsey being the one that shifts to left wing.
Javier Hernandez comes into the lineup for Luis Fernando Tena after not being fit enough to start the last game, while Jesus Zavala replaces the suspended Gerardo Torrado. Andres Guardado is brought in to attack the potentially vulnerable United States right flank, while Hiram Mier replaces Severo Meza.
