USMNT Prepares to Play Ecuador Tonight
The USMNT plays Ecuador tonight as they look to advance to their first Copa America semifinal since 1995. The U.S. needed some help to get to this point, and now they look to take advantage of the 'easier' road to the Copa America championship.
The U.S. will be without a key player in Deandre Yedlin who is suspended for a match after earning a pair of yellow cards in the team's final group stage game against Paraguay. Yedlin will likely be replaced by Michael Orozco who came into the last game after Yedlin was sent off.
The U.S. will look to slow down Ecuador's daunting attack. Ecuador likes to play very fast, should they catch the U.S. defense off-guard they can score from nearly any position. The U.S. will likely get its opportunities as well. Countering Ecuador's attack might be their best way to take this game.
Should the U.S. advance, they would play the winner of Colombia/Peru.
