It’s been over two months since we’ve gotten to enjoy a USMNT match. Jurgen Klinsmann’s squad returns to World Cup qualifying today against St. Vincent & the Grenadines in a hugely important match.

Everyone is expecting the United States to walk over Vincy Heat in this one and technically they should. But, anything can happen in this crazy region of ours. If you’ve been a USMNT supporter long enough, you know just how surprisingly difficult an opponent like this can be.

Jurgen Klinsmann has selected an interesting starting lineup with four regular starters unavailable to play. Kellyn Acosta makes a surprise start at the left-back spot with Fabian Johnson pushing up into the midfield. Alejandro Bedoya and Kyle Beckerman are your central midfield pairing with Michael Bradley and Jermaine Jones out. Jozy Altidore and Bobby Wood are your striker pairing.

The match will be televised by beIN Sports with Phil Schoen and Thomas Rongen on the call. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.

United States Lineup: Brad Guzan; DeAndre Yedlin, Geoff Cameron, Matt Besler, Kellyn Acosta; Graham Zusi, Kyle Beckerman, Alejandro Bedoya, Fabian Johnson; Jozy Altidore, Bobby Wood
