SEATTLE (AP) — U.S. soccer coach Jurgen Klinsmann has made two changes to his lineup Tuesday night against Panama, inserting Eddie Johnson and Geoff Cameron into the starting lineup.
The changes were necessitated by a concussion suffered by Jermaine Jones against Jamaica and a yellow card suspension to Graham Zusi and changed the U.S. to a 4-2-3-1 allignment.
Tim Howard started in goal with the defensive back four the same as the previous two matches: Brad Evans at right back, Omar Gonzalez and Matt Besler in central defense and DaMarcus Beasley at left back.
The midfield included Cameron, Johnson, Michael Bradley, captain Clint Dempsey and Fabian Johnson.
Jozy Altidore was the lone striker for the Americans, despite leaving the match against Jamaica in the 83rd minute and appearing to hold his hamstring.
