Altidore is out with an apparent hamstring injury, Donovan is on the bench, and the U.S. is attacking without much success.

U MAD, BRAD?

The United States plays a massive Gold Cup quarterfinal match against Jamaica today, but they won't be doing it with the most capped active player or with the country's all-time leading goal scorer. Following three very lackluster performances and a missed training session due to his sister's wedding - which he had permission to attend before the tournament started - Landon Donovan has been benched. Win or lose today, it's a good thing for the USMNT.

Bob Bradley has been accused on multiple occasions of favoritism, stubborn team selection, and hypocrisy when it comes to whether or not out of form players can get spots in his starting lineup. Bradley has maintained that the best players will play and that team selection is largely merit-based, and today he has stuck to that principal. Donovan is not playing well, while both Sacha Kljestan and Alejandro Bedoya are. Chris Wondolowski and Juan Agudelo haven't proven that they deserve to start, so it makes sense to move Clint Dempsey inside. This move is a gutsy one by Bob Bradley, and it should be applauded.
