After recording a 1-1 draw with Ecuador on Friday in Landon Donovan’s farewell match, the US national team take on CONCACAF rivals Honduras in Boca Raton, Florida, with several members of the recent World Cup squad returning.
Having named an inexperienced roster for the first of their two friendlies, head coach Jurgen Klinsmann made six changes to the squad on the weekend, with Brazil 2014 veterans Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley, Matt Besler, Jermaine Jones and Graham Zusi all being brought back into the fold after breaks, along with goalkeeper Sean Johnson.
Returning to their respective clubs were John Brooks, the soon-to-retire Donovan, Luis Gil, Omar Gonzalez, Brad Guzan, and Joe Gyau, who suffered a serious knee injury in the first-half of the Ecuador match.
With the exception of Johnson, all of the recently called-up players make the lineup, with Tottenham Hotspur-bound DeAndre Yedlin and centre-back Michael Orozco the only remaining squad members from last week's starting XI to drop to the bench.
There are a couple of unusual tactical experiments from Klinsmann, as defensive midfielder Jones takes Orozco's place on the back-line, while playmaker Mix Diskerud, who grabbed the lone goal in the previous fixture, starts in the holding role.
