No surprises there, except maybe in goal. The Guatemalans I've been reading like Klee better than Trigueno Foster because they feel he's better on crosses and they think of Canada circa 1990.

That lineup would line up like this:

-------------------Trigueno Foster





Same team that played Surinam except Romero comes in after being injured. From what I read it sound like he and Ramirez are both playmakers and Ramirez played on the righ against us in 1999, so they could swap spots.

Thanks for the link sstackho.
