Omar Gonzalez is still on the outs in Jurgen Klinsmann's World Cup starting XI, with Matt Besler and Geoff Cameron currently the favored center back pairing. The ways things are going he'll see time in friendlies, but center backs are rarely subbed out save for injury so it's unlikely he'll see time in Brazil.

Red Bull Arena is sold out, as 25,000 fans attend the second of three send of matches for the United States. In a week the national team will be leaving on a plane to Brazil, by way of Jacksonville, Florida.

The fixture is live on ESPN2 now, with Ian Darke and Taylor Twellman calling the match and the ESPN soccer crew of Bob Ley, Alexi Lalas, and Kasey Keller on site making the short trip down from the studio in Bristol.

Update: The US are up 1-0 after this great goal from Fabian Johnson
