The USMNT comes to Lincoln Financial Field for the first time since the run-up to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, and the United States needs a result.

The United States have had a down and up group stage in the Copa America Centenario thus far. Things began on a dour note against Colombia with a 2-0 loss but four days later the United States picked up a 4-0 win against Costa Rica despite USMNT manager Jurgen Klinsmann not making a single change to his starting XI.

The United States found the back of the net twice in each half en route to a comprehensive 4-0 win over Bolivia. Gyasi Zardes scored twice, finishing off feeds from Alejandro Bedoya in the first half and Bobby Wood in the second half as he rebounded from a mostly bad first half against Ecuador.
