Orange Wedges is TSG’s “gameday” post that is updated until kick-off.
The United States faces Ghana today at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg in South Africa at 2:30PM Eastern today on ABC and Univision. Victor faces the winner of today’s Uruguay vs. South Korea match-up

• Steve Goff at the Washington Post is reporting that a reliable source says Yanks will stick with their Battle of Algiers backline of Cherundolo, DeMerit, Bocanegra, Bornstein. Given that Grant Wahl is “predicting” this line-up and they’re both in the media caravan this sounds about right.
• All 23 US players are available to play against Ghana. Three substitutes allowed as always.
• 75F and sunny today in Rustenburg with no humidity. Temperature will drop some before kickoff. In short, perfect, non-taxing soccer weather.
