Coming off a poor 2015 and a rough start to 2016, Jurgen Klinsmann is confident he has the mix of players to make a run, while Colombia is thirsty for a trophy and feels that it has the talent to earn one after a poor showing at the 2015 Copa America. Ahead of the clash, here is everything you need to know, including how to watch, who to watch and more.
When: Saturday at 7:00 p.m. ET
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
TV: FS1 and Univision Deportes
Stream: Fox Soccer2Go and Fox Sports Go
USA player to watch: Midfielder Christian Pulisic. The young Dortmund sensation has really looked comfortable with the USMNT, scoring his first goal against Bolivia on May 28 to become the country's youngest scorer on the senior level. He's quick, smart and creative with the ball at his feet, and his young blood could boost this team's attack in the tournament. He'll likely come off the bench, but he is going to get a shot to make a statement.
Colombia player to watch: Forward Roger Martinez. Yeah I know, 'What about James?' James Rodriguez is Colombia's top player, but Martinez has star potential and knows how to do damage against the U.S. The 21-year-old Racing striker is inexperienced but has good size and is quick and clinical. He's one of the reasons the USA men aren't at the Summer Olympics.
Projecting starting XIs: USA - Guzan; Johnson, Brooks, Cameron, Yedlin; Bradley, Jones, Bedoya; Wood, Dempsey, Zardes.
COL - Ospina; Fabra, Murillo, Zapata, Arias; Sanchez, Perez, Rodriguez, Cuadrado; Bacca, Martinez.
