Besler replaces Yedlin for the USMNT against Ecuador

Jurgen Klinsmann hinted this week that he might be including Michael Orozco in his lineup for the suspended DeAndre Yedlin as the United States takes on Ecuador in their Copa America Centenario quarterfinal. That isn't the case, as Sporting KC center back Matt Besler gets the nod, likely slotting in at left-back -- this means that Fabian Johnson will move from left-back to right-back.

The rest of the lineup remains unchanged, as it looks like Klinsmann will be going with the 4-3-3 he's started each match of the tournament with. Clint Dempsey returns to lead the line for the USA in front of his own fans at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
