Who doesn't want to keep tabs on their potential opponents? Well, in my case, I'm an American USMNT supporter who just happens to like the Mexican national team, so this isn't really knowing my "enemy," but I know many of this blog's readers probably aren't huge fans of the United States. They take on Panama in the first semifinal of the night, and once again, Landon Donovan is not in the lineup. For Panama, striker Blas Perez is suspended, which is a huge blow. Here are the lineups.
United States lineup: Howard; Lichaj, Bocanegra, Goodson, Cherundolo; Bradley, Jones; Dempsey, Kljestan, Bedoya; Agudelo
Panama lineup: Penedo; Baloy, Henriquez, Torres, Machado, Gomez, Barahona, Henriquez, Cooper, Quintero, Tejada
If you live in the United States, you can catch this game on television on either Fox Soccer Channel, if you prefer English commentary, or Univision, if you prefer Spanish commentary. Kickoff is just after 7:00 pm ET, 6:00 local time from Houston, TX.
