United States vs. Costa Rica: Lineups, Match Thread, and More

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The United States and Costa Rica World Cup Qualifier match is set to kick off in a snow flurry in Colorado. The lineup includes the LA Galaxy's Omar Gonzalez.

The LA Galaxy's Omar Gonzalez gets the start in the backfield as the United States national team takes on Costa Rica in the first home World Cup Qualifier in the last round of Qualifying before the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The US is using a 4-2-3-1 formation, last used against Jamaica in Columbus, OH. According to Taylor Twellman on twitter, wide play in the final third is key.

DaMarcus Beasley typically plays as a winger, now playing on the back line for his 98th cap. Clint Dempsey wears the Captain's armband. Brad Guzan gets his first start since 2010, last playing a key role in the Confederations Cup before the 2010 World Cup.

There's snow falling in Colorado, and it's sticking. No one has mentioned the match being postponed, so it looks like they're going to try and play through it.

Everyone dressed and is available except for Brad Davis.
