Midfielder Maurice Edu was with the national team during the World Cup. You may rememebr he scored that disallowed goal against Slovenia which should never be spoken of again.

Center back Omar Gonzalez is making his first appearance with the national team, after being named the MLS Rookie of the Year in 2009 with the LA Galaxy.

The game is under way, and can be seen on ESPN 2.
