    That defence will cost them as usual plus none of their keepers exactly instill you with any confidence either

    Klinsmann has seemingly given up on deciding the difference between his midfielders and forwards. I fully expect a roster at some point where it's just Defenders/Midfielders/Forwards.

    GOALKEEPERS (3): 1-Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), 12-Tim Howard (Colorado Rapids), 22-Ethan Horvath (Molde IK)

    DEFENDERS (8): 5-Matt Besler (Sporting KC), 3-Steve Birnbaum (D.C. United), 6-John Brooks (Hertha Berlin), 20-Geoff Cameron (Stoke City), 21-Timmy Chandler (Eintracht Frankfurt), 23-Fabian Johnson (Borussia Moenchengladbach), 14-Michael Orozco (Club Tijuana), 2-DeAndre Yedlin (Tottenham Hotspur)

    MIDFIELDERS/FORWARDS (12): 15-Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), 11-Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes), 4-Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), 8-Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC), 13-Jermaine Jones (Colorado Rapids), 16-Perry Kitchen (Heart of Midlothian), 10-Darlington Nagbe (Portland Timbers), 17-Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund), 18-Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), 7-Bobby Wood (Hamburg SV), 20-Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy), 19-Graham Zusi (Sporting KC)

    Excluding Morris is the biggest troll of all time to US fans. Many were outraged that he was consistently starting as a university student, and now that he's playing professionally and finally scoring goals, he gets dropped. I just don't understand it.

    I can't wait for this it Should be good. It's mad to think south America have had their continental competition sorted since 1916 yet it took Europe another 50 odd years to set ours up.

    No Dybala? Bit strange.

    Does Garay no get a game for them anymore? Always thought he was quality.

    Douglas Costa out of the Brazil squad with an injury. Kaká in for him.

    Didn't Argentina reach the World Cup final with that defence?

    They are favourites to win this.

    Brazil will miss Douglas Costa, he's been brilliant for Bayern this season. I don't know what kind of form Kaka is in but it can't be the same. They're not really taking it seriously anyway are they?

    For once I'm not the one losing sleep to watch a football game :smiley-laughing002:

    Don't really care how USA does. Would be nice if they could bring some more recognition to the beautiful game here though.

    Anyone else think the referee was pretty terrible in that game?

    Why are Costa Rica 3/1? Paraguay aren't all that are they?

    I'm surprised by that as well. Paraguay are a solid side that are hard to break down but haven't got much going forward. I like Óscar Romero a lot but he isn't a true centre forward.

    For some reason Díaz left Federico Santander out of the squad, maybe their best forward.
