Starting XI vs. Cuba

Here's the starting XI that U.S. coach Bob Bradley sends out to get the three points that will guarantee the USA's place in the final round of qualifying for the 2010 FIFA World Cup:

4-2-3-1: Howard; Cherundolo, Onyewu, Bocanegra (capt.), Pearce; Bradley, Kljestan; Dempsey, Donovan, Beasley; Ching

The lineup remains unchanged from the group that defeated Trinidad & Tobago in a convincing 3-0 win on Sept. 10 in Bridgeview, Ill. Clint Dempsey leads the U.S. attack with four goals in qualifying so far, with Brian Ching right on his heels with three strikes of his own in the campaign. The group is seeking to extend its six-match shutout streak in World Cup qualifying that dates back to 2005.
