It's U.S. Soccer's centennial match. A sell-out crowd of 46,000 will pack RFK Stadium in the nation's capital to celebrate 100 years of U.S. Soccer with the national team in action on a gorgeous summer day.
So what will the U.S. do to handle the mighty Germans? They'll play Brad Evans and DaMarcus Beasley at fullback. They'll pray Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler continue to gel. They'll cross their fingers that Michael Bradley is the cure to their midfield ills. They'll sell their souls to see if Jozy Altidore can wake up.
Welcome to United States vs. Germany, 2013. Happy centennial.
Germany (4-2-3-1): Marc-Andre ter Stegen; Marcell Jansen, Benedikt Höwedes, Per Mertesacker, Sven Bender; Lars Bender, Stefan Reinartz; Andre Schürrle, Julian Draxler, Lukas Podolski; Miroslav Klose
