USA vs Colombia lineups prediction

It’s was always likely that acting head coach Anthony Hudson rings in the changes for this match, and he does, swapping out 10 starters from the Serbia loss for tonight’s game.

Lineup Prediction

John Tolkin will play left defense and Julian Gressel will start on the right, giving Roman Celentano a chance in goal. Walker Zimmerman’s replacement at center back is Sam Rogers.

Kellyn Acosta starts at position six in the center, and Paxton Pomykal and Paxten Aaronson make up the Pax midfield this time. Paul Arriola will be seated on the right side up front in place of Alejandro Zendejas, who was released to rejoin Club América. On the left wing, Cade Cowell gets the start once more. Brandon Vasquez has another opportunity, but don’t be shocked if Jesus Ferreira eventually enters the game.

USMNT Starting XI vs. Colombia: 1-Sean Johnson, 3-Walker Zimmerman, 4-DeJuan Jones, 6-Paxten Aaronson, 7-Paul Arriola, 9-Jesús Ferreira, 12-John Tolkin, 13-Matthew Hoppe, 15-Aaron Long, 19-Eryk Williamson, 23-Kellyn Acosta (Capt.)

Brandon Vazquez of FC Cincinnati scored on his senior-level debut against Serbia thanks to a precise cross from Vancouver Whitecaps FC fullback Julian Gressel, but the USMNT was unable to respond following that goal in the 29th minute. Within minutes on each side of halftime, their fellow World Cup 2022 participant defeated former Chicago Fire FC homegrown goalie Gaga Slonina twice, stinging the positive start.

However, these domestic-focused January camps are rarely about producing outcomes, as seen by Hudson giving eight players their international debuts so far. Alejandro Zenedjas, a former FC Dallas homegrown star and current Club América winger, was one of them and is now participating in their current Liga MX Clausura campaign.
