Happy Father’s Day and apologies no Orange Slices today.
Update: Wow! More surprises from Coach Bradley.
Landon Donovan starts on the bench. Bedoya in his place. Injury, late arrival over night or form?!
Kljestan as well. Meaning a 4-2-3-1?
Freddy Adu makes the bench.
US goes: Howard, Cherundolo, Goodson, Bocanegra, Lichaj, Jones, Bradley, Dempsey, Bedoya, Kljestan, Altidore
The United States faces a tough upstart opponent in the Reggae Boyz of Jamaica at RFK Stadium at 3pm ET for the right to play the winner of Panama v. El Salvador in the semifinals.
Mexico and Honduaras are through already and will square off on the opposite side of the bracket.
Will the United States move on? Will Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey be bleary-eyed from their cross country jaunts cross continent? Does Alejandro Bedoya perhaps get a start? Can Jozy look beyond a single shining moment per match to bunches of them? Will Jonathan Bornstein score another critical goal in CONCACAF at RFK? Does prodigal son Freddy Adu perhaps make the 18?
It all goes down shortly just off Capitol Hill!
If you missed our official preview it’s right here.
See you in a few hours.
