USA vs. Guatemala: Lineups and match thread

Maybe we'll learn something from this game. Probably not, but maybe!


Happy America day, America! The United States is taking on Guatemala in San Diego to warm up for the Gold Cup. Landon Donovan has returned in a lineup that looks like the team's normal 4-2-3-1. He's listed as the central attacking midfielder, but murmurs on the internet are that he'll play wide, while Joe Corona operates in the middle.

No, I do not understand Jurgen Klinsmann's obsession with playing left backs at left midfield, ahead of a left midfielder who is masquerading as a left back. I do not like it one bit, and it is the only remaining Klinsmann tick that I dislike. He's done all of these awesome things, but he persists with this nonsense. WHY WON'T YOU LET ME LOVE YOU?

Kickoff is scheduled for 11 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. local, but they'll draw it out for a bit because apparently us east coasters deserve punishment. You can catch it on NBC Sports Network. This is your thread for the game, so chat away.
