USA VS Venezuela match analysis

USA hosts Venezuela for a friendly played @ Rio Tinto stadium, Sandy, UTAH. So far USA played 4 matches at this venue and took 4 wins. Time to add another I guess. Bruce Arena took charge of the team in december, again, but the performances were not great till now. A draw with Serbia 0:0 and Jamaica 1:0 win in friendlies and a 6:0 win over Honduras and a draw with Panama 1:1 away in WCQ. This opponent wil be the easiest and I expect a clear win today. Next week USA continues their WCQ matches so should be sharp enough. In their march games USA was missing a few regulars and it probably effected the results. Now 5 players are back and Arena can count on his best squad. This will be a very strong squad for a friendly. USA squad:"GOALKEEPERS (4): Brad Guzan (Atlanta United FC; 53/0), Ethan Horvath (Club Brugge/BEL; 1/0), Tim Howard (Colorado Rapids; 113/0), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake; 22/0) DEFENDERS (10): DaMarcus Beasley (Houston Dynamo; 124/17), Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City; 39/1), John Brooks (VfL Wolfsburg/GER; 30/3), Geoff Cameron (Stoke City/ENG; 50/4), Omar Gonzalez (Pachuca/MEX; 37/1), Matt Hedges (FC Dallas; 1/0), Tim Ream (Fulham/ENG; 23/1), Jorge Villafaña (Santos Laguna/MEX; 4/0), DeAndre Yedlin (Newcastle United/ENG; 43/0), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City; 46/5) MIDFIELDERS (8): Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas; 5/0), Paul Arriola (Club Tijuana/MEX; 4/2), Alejandro Bedoya (Philadelphia Union; 59/2), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC/CAN; 130/16), Fabian Johnson (Borussia Mönchengladbach/GER; 54/2), Dax McCarty (Chicago Fire; 6/0), Darlington Nagbe (Portland Timbers; 14/1), Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund/GER; 13/4) FORWARDS (4): Jozy Altidore (Toronto FC/CAN; 102/37), Clint Dempsey (Seattle Sounders FC; 132/56), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders FC; 14/2), Bobby Wood (Hamburg/GER; 29/8)" Venezuela is hardly making an impact in their qualifiers. They are dead last with only a win to their name. The squad is very limited and mostly depended on the domestic league which in one of the weakest in South America. There are some more familiar names like Rondon but you will hardly find them to be key players in their teams. Venezuela squad: "Goalkeepers (2) : Alain Baroja (South America, Uruguay), José Contreras (Deportivo Tachira) DEFENDERS (7) : Pablo Camacho (Deportivo Tachira), José Luis Marrufo (Mineros de Guayana), Yordan Osorio (Tondela / POR), Rubert Quijada (Caracas FC), Jefre Vargas (Arouca / POR), José Manuel Velázquez (Arouca / POR), Mikel Villanueva (Malaga / ESP) Midfielders (7) : Francisco Flores (Mineros de Guayana), Francisco La Mantia (Deportivo La Guaira), Darwin Machís (CD Leganés / ESP), Junior Moreno (Zulia FC), Jhon Murillo (Tondela / POR), Aristóteles Romero (Mineros de Guayana), Jefferson Savarino (Real Salt Lake / USA) FORWARDS (4) : Salomon Rondon (West Bromwich Albion / ENG), Andrés Ponce (Lugano / SUI), Edder Farías (Caracas FC), Christian Santos (Deportivo Alaves / ESP)". USA played Venezuela 3 times: 2:0, 2:0, 1:0. This match will be used as a confidence booster and in front of a great Utah crowd USA shouldn`t dissapoint.
