[USA MEN] Two U.S. national team starters, Jozy Altidore and Brad Evans, are injured and their status for the Costa Rica and Mexico World Cup 2014 qualifiers is uncertain.

Altidore injured his hamstring in practice and did not dress for Sunderland's 3-1 loss at Crystal Palace. It was planned that he fly to Miami, where the USA has set up camp, to be evaluated before his status for the qualifiers could be determined.

Evans injured his left calf and had to leave early in the first half of the Seattle Sounders' 1-0 win at Columbus, where the start of the game was delayed for two hours by bad weather.

Evans' Sounders teammate, Clint Dempsey, played the whole game, but his back tightened, which he attributed to the delay. Eddie Johnson, the Sounders' third national team players, left the game as a precautionary measure in the second half with what was reported to be soreness in his hamstring.

Usually, U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann waits until after weekend play to reveal his camp roster, but he announced on Thursday the 23 players he planned on bringing in to Miami.

In March, four players were injured (Jonathan Spector, Timmy Chandler and Jose Torres) or took ill (Danny Williams) on the weekend before reporting to camp for the first set of Costa Rica and Mexico qualifiers.

    Ouch........well, there you go.....now's the time to work the Klinns magic.....as long as Zusi can go, I'd like to see Lando and EJ up top, Johannsson first off the bench if Eddie isn't explosive enough....If Graham, can't, then its LD to the right Johannsson & EJ on top with Dempsey, Bradley and Jones filling out the middie, followed by Fabian, Besler, Gonzo and Cameron. Why do feel that we will see Bedoya start if Zusi is out though?

    Couldn't care less who coach starts...if the chemistry and consistency are in play, it's up to the opposition to do better.

    Beckerman instead of Jones. Beasley at left back. Besler and Gonzalez at center back, Cameron at right back. Bradley along side Beckerman. Dempsey behind the forwards. Fabian Johnson wide left, Zusi wide right, and Donovan with Eddie Johnson as forwards.

    Beckerman has shown no ability to handle the pressures of a road WC Qualifier. He's too slow to react to the high pressure and is ineffective.
