    Aron Johannsson should be the starter for USMNT. And not Jozy Altidore!

    The way things are going for both, I would have to agree. But I don't Know if that would implie a major change in strat and tacts. in a defensive countering start altidore should probably start, if we get scored on early like in all the previous WCs and against Ukraine, johannsson should be subbed in immediately. Maybe both should start. Maybe johannsson can play right wing? Who knows but be carefull about fielding too many offensive dudds onto the field against such strong opposition.
