Two strikers. Crazyness. 

Bit of squad rotation. Oso hoillett david arfield on the bench. 

Glad to see henry back. 

I like this. First off, it’s totally different to how we lined up the last match making it less predictable for Mexico. Also having two strikers with one in particular that can get his head on the ball gives us another attacking option beside trying to play the ball on the ground through the middle. I fully expect the fullbacks to be burning up and down the wings. Not a huge Larin fan but I’m calling two goals from his head.

I know our best shot to advance is with prepping to overpower Cuba. At the same time I wish I could see last games lineup against Mexico, just to see how we stack up.

In a way I like it as it gives us a chance to evaluate more players

These are all valid starters

No way teibert, johnson larin are vaild starters compared to guys on the bench(arfield, david, hoilett). This is a rotational squad and theyre the rotational players subbed in.

I think Davies plays on the left and Johnson will be in the middle. But I agree that it would be nice to see what he can do at the point of the diamond.

If Davies does end up on the right side, I would love to see him cut back across the top of the box and drill one from his left foot past Mexico.

I'm trying to figure it out if we are 

4-4-2

4-1-3-2

3-5-2 

3-4-3

Oh the possibilities :). 

As much as I want best 11, I'm totally cool with the squad rotation.

Figures we play Mexico at altitude... the USA and Mexico get lots of favours.

Very good observation. You're so right.

3-4-3 "should" force the Mexicans wide. Kinda like it. Let's see. Man I'm pumped.

Hey we aren't playing a 5-4-1 with 7 defenders (knocking on wood).
