Omar Gonzalez has made Jurgen Klinsmann's starting lineup for USA vs. Canada tonight. A.J. DeLaGarza will not dress.

Big night for Omar Gonzalez as he gets his first true look under Jurgen Klinsmann's regime. There's a spot for this center back on the US qualifying squad if he can step up and take it. The talent is there, undeniably, and he's getting a fair look.

Less fortunate is A.J. DeLaGarza, the other LA Galaxy center back won't be dressing tonight. That likely spells the end of his time with the US this year. Despite this being the biggest year of his career, he's got a few more biggest year's still to come.

Klinsmann goes with an all MLS lineup, quite encouraging.
