On tap: USMNT v Spain

I'm rather busy at the moment, so I won't prattle yet, but I will have a few things to say at the beginning of the U.S. v Spain LIVE later on. Expect the line-ups and my prediction around about 12:45 PM CT.

One quick note: the official Spain website preview predicted line-ups have late fitness test taker Carlos Bocanegra at left back... I don't know if they know something from watching training or if they are simply guessing wrong based on his Rennes duties. Hmm.

So off we go to the high-altitude Confederations Cup reading room - what a view...
