Last Saturday, Luchi Gonzalez kept with his 4-3-3 look while brining in a midfield that a lot of US U20 fans would have liked to have seen in Poland during the U20 World Cup. Edwin Cerrillo, Brandon Servania and Paxton Pomykal made up the all-Homegrown midfield for the first time and it brought a lot of quality things to the field. On the flip side, he also went with a very veteran-led defensive group with Reto Ziegler, Matt Hedges, Bressan and Ryan Hollingshead all on the back line. Those combinations were good enough for a 3-0 win over Toronto.
Will Luchi go with that same starting group on Wednesday? Or will he be inclined to bring on someone like Santiago Mosquera for more minutes? Or even Ricardo Pepi into the starting lineup like he got during the two USOC games? Or is there something else Luchi should be doing?
Here is what we know in terms of availability for Wednesday’s game (some of the loaned players could end up not being on loan, those are fluid each week):
OUT: John Nelson (abdominal)
QUESTIONABLE: Jacori Hayes (quad)
LOAN: Dante Sealy (North Texas SC), Moises Hernandez (San Antonio FC), Ema Twumasi & Francis Atuahene (Austin Bold), Cristian Colman (North Texas SC)
