Okay, I am feeling myself again and ready to get back on the Clipboard program. And so we turn to what is in my book easily the toughest spot to call on the entire field. Were Geoff Cameron healthy, that would free up Michael Bradley to be the sixth player I could happily start in this slot. In fact, when we're all done, I will share a couple of alternate line-ups that hinge on who takes the #8

If anyone had any money that the United States would defeat Paraguay and then watch as Colombia would lose to Costa Rica in order to win Group A, chances are you are a liar, but I may want to rub you for luck. Nevertheless, seeing Geoff Cameron and John Brooks work to preserve a clean sheet for a 10-man USA squad - DeAndre Yedlin got two yellow cards in quick succession - so that they could play the Group B runner-up (which could be any one of Brazil, Ecuador or Peru) on Thursday in Seattle was impressive.
