    -----------------Howard-------------------------
    Chandler-----Cameron--Boca---------Johnson
    ------------------Williams-----------------------
    ------------------Jones-----------------------------
    -------Bradley---Kljestan-------------Gyau------
    -----------------Altidore-------------------------

    Here are some questions heading into the match.

    1. Jurgen has called in some new guys. Are we going to see any of them in the starting lineup?
    Gyau, Gatt, Mix and (probably not) Agudelo?

    2. Are we going to see any experiementation at center back? Jones or Edu, perhaps?

    3. Who is going to start at forward? The slashing (now incumbent) Hercules Gomez or the
    red hot prodigal son, Jozy Altidore?

    4. Bradley, Jones, Williams, can they all get shoehorned into the starting lineup?

    5. If so, who are the other midfield options? I like that we will see a surprise in the starting lineup, who might it be?

    6. How much attacking are we going to do on Mother Russia's home soil?

    7. Without our two main options, Donovan and Dempsey, how much attacking will we be able to create? Who will create it?

    Howard​
    Chandler - Cameron - Bocanegra - Johnson​
    Williams - Jones​
    Gatt - Bradley - Gomez​
    Altidore​
    I think they'll line up like this. Great to see Chandler and Gatt's pace on the right side of the field.​

    Defense needs to be top notch today and Boca and Cameron have to be disciplined otherwise Kokorin, Dzagoev and Kerzhakov will punish us.

    i think more predictable would've been Kljestan over Gatt though, really glad Gatt is starting

    Wow, Gatt starting. That's a surprise. He has to be RM. Wonder who LM is? Could be Fabian if Williams drops back to LB, but that is highly unlikely. Personally, I think Jozy will play the role of Eddie Johnson today. 4-5-1/4-3-3.

    Chandler---Cameron---Boca---FJ

    Ussoccer uses semicolons to indicate who's playing defense/midfield/forward when they tweet the lineup. So they're playing in a 4-4-2, though of course it's not a flat 4 midfield (I don't think Jurgen has ever played without a designated D-mid). So the lineup probably looks like:

    --------------Howard--------------
    Chandler---Cameron---Boca---FJ
    --------------Williams-------------
    Gatt----------Bradley-------Jones
    -------Gomez---------Altidore-----

    I'm not sure who I'd prefer out wide between Bradley/Jones or who Jurgen will put out there. But I kind of expect Gatt to push forward on the wing more often than Bradley/Jones will, which would mean both of them would tend to drift more centrally (looking like your lineup).

    Bench: Rimando; Goodson; Edu; Kljestan, Diskerud, Agudelo, Body.

    Kljstan will sub for Gatt. Agudelo for the LM/LW, who I think will be Altidore. Boyd for Gomez as the CF. And Diskerud for Bradley/Jones.
