The US Soccer team is gearing up for another friendly on Sunday June 3rd, with North American rivals Canada being the opponent this time around.

The game will be televised on the NBC Sports Network and its the the two teams first meeting on Canadian Soil since 1997.

With upcoming qualifiers at home against Antigua and Barbuda, and away against Guatemala, it is likely that Jurgen Klinsmann will send out his strongest team for a final warm-up.

In the last few games the squad has lined up in a sort of  4-5-1/4-3-3 formation but is likely that spectators will see a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Here is the lineup.


Formation: 4-2-3-1


Goalkeeper: Tim Howard

Right Back: Steve Cherundolo

Center Back: Clarence Goodson

Center Back: Carlos Bocanegra

Left Back: Fabian Johnson

Defensive Midfielder: Jermaine Jones

Defensive Midfielder: Michael Bradley

Right Attacking Midfield: Landon Donovan

Central Attacking Midfield: Clint Dempsey

Left Attacking Midfield: Jose Torres

Forward: Jozy Altidore
