Skipper Clint Dempsey has been ruled out of this Euro-trip of friendlies against Denmark and Switzerland. As everyone will now wonder how they'd line 'em up with him gone, I will start: with so many wingers on hand, I'd simply slide Bedoya to the #10 spot ahead of free roamer Bradley and gate hound Williams.
By the way, for anyone going to Zurich for the game, it is wholly worth the 50-60 minute lake-side drive to eat "Chicken in a Basket" at Restaurant Schlüssel - no lie. You could put that sauce on a shoe and wolf it whole.
