The U.S. national team returns to action on Wednesday, as they face the Czech Republic in a friendly in Prague (Watch live on NBCSN, 2:15 p.m. ET and online via Live Extra) with Jurgen Klinsmann selecting a young squad.

Players such as Emerson Hyndman, Rubio Rubin, Jordan Morris and Alfredo Morales are all in the squad as the Stars and Stripes begin their new cycle towards the 2018 World Cup.

They will be facing a tough task against the Czechs, who have Premier League stars such as Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky to choose from. The Czech Republic face the Netherlands on Sept. 9.


We know there will be plenty of changes at half time and throughout the game for both teams but here is the starting lineup for the USA and Czech Republic. Altidore start up top for the U.S. in a 4-3-3 formation, while Guzan is given the nod in goal but will be replaced with Nick Rimando at half time. Young winger Joe Gyau starts out wide with Julian Green on the other flank, while there’s a midfield trio of Bedoya, Diskerud and Corona.

The Czech Republic include both Cech and Rosicky in their starting lineup as they warm up for their qualifier vs. Holland next Tuesday.


Czech Republic: Cech; Kaderabek, Prochazka, Kadlec, Limbersky; Darida, Jiracek; Rosicky, Pilar, Krejci; Vydra.

USA: Guzan, F. Johnson, Orozco, Brooks, Chandler; Bedoya, Corona, Diskerud; Green, Altidore, Gyau.

    Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of Timmy Chandler at left back. He is right footed. I like my left backs to be left footed. Yet I don’t know that the US has ever developed a left back worth mentioning. DBeasley performed phenomally there this summer, but even he wasnt tabbed as a defender until his thirties.

    Also I’m not a fan of Orozco. He is an “eh” player to me.

    I do LOVE that wing combo of the left footed Gyau on the right, and Green on the left. They will be cutting in and piercing/penetrating all game. BOOM

    The young guns vs. Full-strength Czechs? Fun to watch, especially with thunderfoot Jozy.
