USA--Cuba Starting Line-up

--------------Howard------------------
Hejduk------Onyewu-----Bocanegra (c)-------Pearce
-----Bradley-------Edu-----------

  • Only two player changes from the starting XI that took the field against Guatemala in the USA's opening match of Semifinal Round qualifying on Aug. 20: Frankie Hejduk replaces Steve Cherundolo, who is out due to a suspension, and Maurice Edu takes his midfield spot in place of Pablo Maestroeni.
  • The other slight change is the move of Clint Dempsey and Landon Donovan, who switch positions from the Guatemala match. Dempsey moves to the right wing, while Donovan will be up top with Ching.
  • The available subs are: Brad Guzan, Ricardo Clark, Marvell Wynne, Eddie Lewis, Eddie Johnson, Danny Califf and Sacha Kljestan
  • Cherundolo and Michael Orozco are the two players on the traveling roster not part of the 18 for the match.
  • Wynne is the only player on the 18-man roster who hasn't appeared in a FIFA World Cup qualifying game.

Weird, didn't Bradley play up front in Holland when he scored all those goals? I wonder why he's in midfield for the MNT.
