Clarence Goodson and Eddie Johnson start for the United States. Come chat with us in our game thread.

Happy America Day, Americaland! Today, your United States men's national team takes on Antigua and Barbuda as part of a lovely working Caribbean vacation. The USMNT is in serious need of three points, and they should probably get it against a struggling A&B side.

With Jozy Altidore left out and Landon Donovan injured, Eddie Johnson gets a start for Jürgen Klinsmann. In the absence of anyone who resembles a left back, Carlos Bocanegra has been moved outside and Clarence Goodson will start at center back. Michael Parkhurst is somewhat surprisingly left out of the team. Jermaine Jones has also been dropped for the first time in a competitive match under Klinsmann.

United States starting lineup (4-3-1-2): Tim Howard; Carlos Bocanegra, Clarence Goodson, Geoff Cameron, Steve Cherundolo; Graham Zusi, Michael Bradley, Danny Williams; Clint Dempsey; Eddie Johnson, Herculez Gomez

Antigua and Barbuda starting lineup: Molvin James; Marc Joseph, Luke George-Blakely, George Dublin, Quinton Griffith, Randolph Burton, Akeem Thomas, Zaine Francis-Angol, Dexter Blackstock, Peter Byers, Tamorley Thomas

I'm guessing this is a 4-3-1-2 formation, but don't buy too much into it. The numbers don't matter. This team will play roughly the same way with roughly the same goals regardless of formation.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. ET. You can catch the match on beIN Sport, and their English channel is only available on DISH Network and DirecTV at this time. We recommend hitting your local AO bar if you do not get the channel.
