What: The United States Men's National Team (USMNT) is hosting the Costa Rican National Team at the Home Depot Center in  Los Angeles, California tonight in an international friendly.

When/Where: 11:20 pm on ESPN 2. Andy Roddick and some guy with the last name of "Sock" are currently playing in the second set of their tennis match on ESPN 2. If their game goes into, and past, 11 pm the channel will not switch to the USMNT per ESPN policy.

Line ups: USMNT lineup v. CRC: Howard; Chandler, Orozco Fiscal, Bocanegra (c), Castillo; Donovan, Edu, Torres; Rogers, Altidore, Shea; Subs tonight: Hamid, Goodson, Spector, Larentowicz, Kljestan, Ream Agudelo

US Soccer is listing the line up as a 4-3-3, which is interesting given the USMNT's recent history as a rather defensive side. Jurgen Klinsmann has revamped the line up, which features some MLS mainstays (Donovan, Rogers and Shea). It's good to see Altidore get the start, as his form has been take nice so far into his stay in the Netherlands. Perhaps he'll re-find his national team form that he had in 2009.

CRC lineup: Navas; Johnson, Umaña, Acosta, Miller; Barrantes, Azofeifa, Sanchez, Martinez, Saborio, Brenes
