The team is in their pre-game meeting at the moment following the final meal before departure to the stadium. The bus leaves at 6:45 p.m. for the ten minute drive to St. Jakob Park. By now, the players all know who is in the 18-man roster for tonight. They watched a little more film on Switzerand, reviewed responsibilities on re-starts, and got a few more words on what to expect from the match tonight. They are expecting 15,000 spectators on a crisp, clear evening here in Basel. Check back in just under two hours to find out who made the starting lineup for the USA's 17th match of 2007 and their first against Switzerland since the 1994 World Cup.
