A three weeks camp comes to a close tonight as the U.S. Men’s National Team takes on Canada in Houston at BBVA Compass Stadium. For some it is an audition to the hexagonal World Cup qualifying matches. For others this match could help get them on a Gold Cup roster during a busy 2013. Connor Lade, a surprise addition to the January roster, was not dressed for the match. Players tweeted their numbers and thank yous and fans are ready to go. Here are the starting lineups.
United States (4-4-2, R to L): S. Johnson; Beltran, Gonzalez, Besler, Morrow; Zusi, Beckerman, Evans, Davis; Johnson, Wondolowski
Canada: Thomas; Morgan, Jakovic, Attakora, Ledgerwood; Tiebert, Beaulieu-Bourgault, Bekker, Dunfield, Ricketts; De Rosario
Our prediction results: Doug got five of 11. Pete got seven of 11. Zach got five of 11. Tony Beltran, Matt Besler, and Justin Morrow all will make their first start for the United States. Mix Diskerud is not available off the bench while Kyle Beckerman will be the captain for the evening.
