US-Colombia starting lineups

USA (0pts) vs. Colombia (0pts)

The final Copa America match for both these sides is about to kickoff and although it is not important in many ways, this is not a junk match. The US need to get a win out of this to have anything good to say about their trip down south.

Anyway, here are the starting lineups.
GK: Brad Guzan
D: Bobby Boswell, Heath Pearce, Dan Califf, Drew Moor
M: Sacha Kljestan, Kyle Backerman, Ricardo Clark, Justin Mapp
F: Herculez Gomez, Eddie Johnson

Yesterday afternoon Bradley said that no matter what the results from the matches later in the evening, they were not going to cause him to change his lineup. Perhaps that is true, but looking at the list above, I have trouble believing that. If the US still had a chance, would Guzan really be getting the start over Keller? Don't get me wrong, it is great that Guzan is getting the chance but why not just say that if we cannot advance, I will give other people some chanecs?

Anyway, here is Colombia's lineup:
G: Zapata
D: Yepes, Arilaza, Perea, Viafara
M: Castrillion, Torres, Banguero, Zuniga
F: Rodallega, Valoyes

My prediction: USA 1-0 Colombia
The wife's prediction: USA 0-2 Colombia
