Kellyn Acosta and Carlos Gruezo join their respective countries in their home stadium as the United States and Ecuador in a friendly. The FC Dallas duo hope to help their countries out just weeks before Copa America.

The US are coming off a 3-1 win in Puerto Rico last weekend. Jurgen Klinsmann has 22 of his 23-man Copa roster with him tonight, a big difference from last week's camp in Miami that took on Puerto Rico.

Ecuador should give them a pretty stiff test. Their style of play loosely looks like what they'll see in Colombia as the tournament opens in a couple weeks.

Acosta in the lineup. Klinsmann is expected to use a stronger lineup tonight than what he used over the weekend. The big question we'll be asking is whether or not we'll see Acosta in the mix to start out or if he will come in off the bench. We do know he'll likely be used in a fullback spot either way.

More on Ecuador. While we all know Gruezo, one other face on Ecuador's team may be familiar to MLS fans around the league. Former Chivas USA attacker Miller Bolaños will also be a fixture with this team. He had three goals and four assists in 29 MLS games before returning to Ecuador with Emelec in 2013.
