Picking Besler’s center-back partner is considerably more tricky.
Geoff Cameron and John Anthony Brooks were given the nod against Bosnia last month when Jurgen Klinsmann called in a Eurocentric roster. However, Cameron will likely be needed at right-back on Friday and one would have to believe Brooks is a long-shot considering his international inexperience.
Michael Orozco is also on the roster, but is the biggest long-shot to get the nod.
Despite some shaky moments over the past few months for both club and country, particularly in the last five minutes of games, Omar Gonzalez will get the start.
On a side note, it would be nice for Brooks to get a five-minute stint at the end of the game to cap-tie him to the U.S. Currently, he is still eligible to represent Germany on the international level.
