It's Belize. Seriously, if we don't crush Belize...

USA TODAY Sports

Happy America day, America land! Tonight, the United States take on Belize in their first Gold Cup group stage game from Jeld-Wen Field in Portland. While Belize did very well to get here, drawing Guatemala and beating Nicaragua, they're a team filled with amateurs (unlike Martinique, who have a lot of pros), and they're probably going to struggle quite a bit with the United States.

Even though this is a B-team Gold Cup and just the first match of the tournament, I'll probably start supporting Canada if we don't win by multiple goals. Here's the U.S. lineup.

Unsurprisingly, Oguchi Onyewu doesn't play on turf. I'm not sure what this formation is. It's listed as 4-4-2, but Jose Torres as a winger in a 4-4-2 is weird, and I would argue bad. I hope that's not what's happening. I like Wondo getting a look after his goal against Guatemala.

Kickoff is at 11 pm ET, 8 pm local time. You can catch the game on FOX Soccer or UniMas. This is your open thread, so chat away.
