The United States is running out of chances to find some solid form before World Cup qualifying starts in summer. Tonight, they take on a Panamanian team they really should beat and they will be returning to the 4-4-2 that Jurgen Klinsmann has seemed so intent on doing away with. Chris Wondolowski will start alongside Teal Bunbury at forward.
Neither Jeff Parke nor Brad Evans are in the starting lineup, but they will likely be on the bench. It looks like Klinsmann is going to give Michael Parkhurst and Geoff Cameron a second look at center back, which makes sense after their strong performance against Venezuela. Ricardo Clark will start with Jermaine Jones in the central midfield.
Panama starters: Mejía; Algandona, Dasent, Vázquez, Rodríguez; Waithe, Sánchez, Gómez, Quintero; Rentería, Pérez.
United Sates starters: Rimando; DeLaGarza, Parkhurst, Cameron, Loyd; Zusi, Clark, Jones (capt.), Shea; Wondolowski, Bunbury
