After experimenting with his lineups in the last few games, and the summer Gold Cup, the United States head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has decided to lead off with his veteran players as he seeks to secure a victory over North American arch rivals, Mexico.

However, Brad Guzan remains the starting goalkeeper, with Everton’s Tim Howard only on the bench.

Klinsmann has also decided to go with Matt Besler and Geoff Cameron as his starting centre-backs, with DaMarcus Beasley and Fabian Johnson making up the back four.

Kyle Beckerman, Jermaine Jones and captain Michael Bradley will operate in midfield and will be joined by Gyasi Zardes, while Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey are the men given the freedom to go and get the goals in the strikers positions.

The starting USA side for this clash is featuring nine players who started in the World Cup opener against Ghana in Brazil last summer.

DeAndre Yedlin, Jonathan Spector, Brad Evans and Chris Wondolowski are among the substitutes.

Meanwhile, captain Rafa Marquez will start alongside Héctor Herrera and Andrés Guardado in a strong midfield for Mexico.

Former Manchester United striker Javier Hernández leads the attack along with Raul Jiménez and Oribe Peralta.

Diego Reyes, Miguel Layún, Héctor Moreno and Paul Aguilar are the back four starters in defense.

Moisés Munoz has gotten the starting nod in goal, with Alfredo Talavera on the bench.

Jonathan Dos Santos and Carlos Vela are among the substitutes, so too are Jorge Torres, Javier Aquino and Elias Hernández.

The winner of tonight’s contest will secure a place into the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
