Happy soccer day! The United States face a tough test in Kingston tonight when they take on Jamaica in a World Cup qualifier. Jurgen Klinsmann has picked a surprising team, and as Ryan said to me a couple of minutes ago, this feels kind of like when Bob Bradley picked a weird team at Saprissa in 2009. We're not panicking yet, but ... what the hell? Here are the lineups.

United States lineup (4-3-3): Tim Howard; Fabian Johnson, Michael Parkhurst, Clarence Goodson, Geoff Cameron; Maurice Edu, Jermaine Jones, Kyle Beckerman; Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore, Herculez Gomez

Jamaica lineup (3-4-1-2): Dwayne Miller; Adrian Mariappa, Nyron Nosworthy, Jermaine Taylor; Lovel Palmer, Jason Morrison, Rodolph Austin, Kavin Bryan; Jevaughn Watson; Luton Shelton, Ryan Johnson.

Steve Cherundolo is out due to a calf strain, per ESPN's Doug McIntyre. Carlos Bocanegra's absence is presumably a decision based on tactics or form. I'm guessing Geoff Cameron is the right back, but it could be Michael Parkhurst. The rest of the formation isn't exactly set in stone either. My guess is a 4-3-3, Ryan's guess is a 4-3-1-2 with Dempsey in the hole. In any event, this should be interesting.

Kickoff is at 8 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on beIN Sport, which is available on DirecTV and Dish Network. Comcast also carries beIN Sport, but only the Spanish channel, which is showing the Argentina-Paraguay match. If you have Comcast, you can watch the game on delay.
