USA vs. Trinidad & Tobago, 2018 World Cup qualifying: Lineups and match thread

The United States is in Port of Spain to take on Trinidad and Tobago in what is sure to be a hellacious match. The Soca Warriors are playing well and road matches in CONCACAF are not easy so Jurgen Klinsmann's side will have to be up to a considerable challenge today.

Klinsmann is opting for a more conservative team than the one that played St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Friday. DeAndre Yedlin moves into the midfield and Gyasi Zardes to forward, with Michael Orozco slotting in at right back. The team essentially has six defenders in the team, and will depend heavily on Michael Bradley through the midfield and their forwards to make something happen.

The match can be seen live on beIN Sport in English and NBC Universo in Spanish. If the U.S. can win, they'll have a foot in the final round of World Cup qualifying, which a loss or draw would put pressure on them to get results against Guatemala in March. Let's do this!

United States lineup: Tim Howard; Michael Orozco, Geoff Cameron, Matt Besler, Tim Ream; DeAndre Yedlin, Michael Bradley, Jermaine Jones, Fabian Johnson; Jozy Altidore, Gyasi Zardes
