This is the trickiest spot in the U.S. lineup right now. With Landon Donovan not selected, the U.S. depth at the outside midfield position is thin. Klinsmann has, in the past, used Danny Williams, Jermaine Jones, Clint Dempsey and Sacha Kljestan as wide midfielders, but those are not preferred options.
Klinsmann could give another shot to Brad Davis, but that is not likely. Klinsmann could also give a first start to Joe Corona, which would be an exciting choice. Brek Shea is not likely to get the nod since he has not played a competitive game since March (that fact in and of itself raises questions as to why Shea was even called up).
Klinsmann used Eddie Johnson as a wide midfielder in the October qualifiers to much success, but since then, Klinsmann has primarily used Johnson, ineffectively, as a forward. Gomez, meanwhile, was used in the wide position against Costa Rica and Mexico and always gives a 100 percent effort every time he is on the field.
Look for Gomez to get the start again.
