The absence of Clint Dempsey won't damper our fun

Brad Evans, Eddie Johnson and the rest of the US Mens National Team are in Glascow, Scotland for a friendly this afternoon. They will be without the services of Clint Dempsey and Fabian Johnson, both of whom sustained injuries leading up to the match. Neither of them need worry much; they don't stand much of a chance of being left off the World Cup squad next year. Guys who do need to worry are borderline guys coming in from MLS like Chris Wondolowski and Bill Hamid. Anyone who isn't already a lock is running out of opportunities to prove themselves; This friendly is among the last chances some of these players will ever have to represent their country. But you know, no pressure.

ESPN2 is broadcasting the game from Hampden Park. Festivities start at noon. The lineups will be posted as they appear. We are 209 days away from World Cup Brazil.
