The U.S. is unchanged from its 1-1 friendly draw with Venezuela on Saturday as it seeks a badly needed three points at Dick's Sporting Goods Park outside of Denver.

Pulisic ready to take on U.S. stardom

U.S. coach Bruce Arena has opted for Darlington Nagbe ahead of Alejandro Bedoya on the right flank, with Fabian Johnson on the left side.

Bobby Wood is the odd man out up top, with Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey partnered in a two-man forward line.

In defense, John Brooks has recovered from a bruised quad suffered against Venezuela, and will partner Geoff Cameron in the center of the U.S. defense.

USA XI: Howard; Yedlin, Cameron, Brooks, Villafana; Bradley, Nagbe, Johnson, Pulisic; Dempsey, Altidore
