USA Vs. Chile: Starting Lineups Released, Bob Bradley Goes 4-2-3-1

USMNT coach Bob Bradley has gone away from his most commonly used 4-4-2 formation yet again, continuing to mix up his personnel post-World Cup 2010. For tonight's USA vs. Chile match, San Jose Earthquakes striker and MLS Golden Boot winner Chris Wondolowski will start up top on his own, despite playing most effectively either on the right wing or with a strike parter in the most recent MLS season. To the displeasure of many fans, this means that youngsters Teal Bunbury and Juan Agudelo have been excluded from the starting lineup.

The other most interesting lineup choices include Mikkel "Mix" Diskerud behind Wondolowski as a No. 10 and D.C. United's newly acquired man Dax McCarty starting in the center of midfield and wearing the captain's armband. Nick Rimando starts in goal; him and Sean Johnson will likely see 45 minutes each. Tim Ream and Omar Gonzalez make up a balanced quick distributor/big bruiser central defense combo. Here's the full lineup.

United States lineup (4-2-3-1, L to R): Rimando ; Loyd, Ream, Gonzalez, Franklin ; McCarty, Larentowicz ; Shea, Diskerud, Bedoya ; Wondolowski

The match starts at 10 pm ET on ESPN3 and we'll have minute by minute coverage here at SBNation.
