A few explanations:
1 - Tourney's starting, keep the same defense.
2 - Get Rimando right back in after a shaky outing.
3 - Some time after Donovan scores to break the all-time Gold Cup record, give him an early night.
4 - Not every position is filled by my top choice. It's Belize, let's save some gas.
5 - It could've been Mix or Donovan in the hole, but it's time to give Bedoya a shot in his hit zone.
6 - A 4-4-2 after the friendly success? No. We need to be able to become successful with an aggressive style against mites if we want to hang when it comes time to tackle the big boys next summer.
