STARTING XI

Here's how Bob Bradley has set lineup for South Africa:


Howard

Cherundolo   Onyewu   Bocanegra (capt.)   Pearce

Feilhaber                                             Beasley
Edu                         Bradley

Adu                    Dempsey


The lineup remains largely unchanged from the group that beat Switzerland in Basel last month. Tim howard returns to the net for his 26th game while back four stays intact, anchored by team captain Carlos Bocanegra. Michael Bradley, who scored the game-winner against the Swiss in th e86th minute, is once again paired in the middle with MLS Rookie of the Year Maurice Edu, while the flanks are patrolled by DaMarcus Beasley and Benny Feilhaber. Freddy Adu gets his first start with the full team, partnered with Clint Dempsey.

I hope Altidore gets more than a 10 minute run out. He deserves the entire second half.

You have the midfield flipped around, but this should be an interesting lineup to witness.

It makes me feel good that for the 2008 Olympics we already have four players in the starting lineup for the last MNT game of 2007.
