USA Vs. Brazil 2012: Two Changes To Jurgen Klinsmann's Starting Lineup

U.S. National Team manager Jurgen Klinsmann has named his starting lineup for Wedesday night's friendly against five-time world champions Brazil at FedEx Field.

Klinsmann has made two changes from the lineup that started Saturday's 5-1 thrashing of Scotland in Jacksonville. Oguchi Onyewu starts in place of Geoff Cameron at the back, while Herculez Gomez partners Jose Torres in place of Terrence Boyd. Hat-trick hero Landon Donovan takes his accustomed starting position in the U.S. midfield.

Here's the full U.S. starting lineup: 1-Tim Howard; 6-Steve Cherundolo, 5-Oguchi Onyewu, 3-Carlos Bocanegra (capt.), 23-Fabian Johnson; 7-Maurice Edu, 4-Michael Bradley, 13-Jermaine Jones; 10-Landon Donovan, 9-Herculez Gomez, 16-Jose Torres.

And here are the substitutes: Michael Parkhurst, Clint Dempsey, Kyle Beckerman, Edgar Castillo, Terrence Boyd, Clarence Goodson, Nick Rimando.
