After a disastrous match against Guatemala, everything is riding on tonight for the United States. That's not hyperbole, it's reality. A loss and they most likely won't be heading to the 2018 World Cup and Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann most likely will be heading out of a job. The match in Columbus still hasn't sold out as of this writing.
Hershey, Pennsylvania's own Christian Pulisic has received his first Men's National Team call-up. Additionally, Guatemala's talisman (and ex-Philadelphia Union striker) Carlos Ruiz will make the trip to Ohio to play tomorrow night.
It will be interesting to see if Klinsmann continues to play his players outside of their natural positions or if he can assemble a competent lineup that will keep the United States in the hunt for the Hexagonal.
