Chandler's return is a top talking point
The USMNT roster for the friendly against Russia is full of surprises that offer a glimpse of Jurgen Klinsmann's vision for the team in 2013.

The bottom line is that there are several new players who now have the opportunity to prove themselves on the big stage. There are also a few veterans of the team who could be on thin ice and a strong performance against Russia is needed to be in the picture moving forward.

Who will Klinsmann select for the final game of 2012?
So with the USMNT game against Russia fast approaching, let's look at a potential roster.

Now this roster is now what I think Jurgen Klinsmann will do, it is what I would do if I were him. Now it's hard to make predictions yet since we do not know the results of the MLS playoffs and that does affect player availability.

Williams has been stellar in central midfield
Has Jurgen Klinsmann found his ideal central midfield pairing in Danny Williams and Michael Bradley? It certainly looked like it last night.

With Jermaine Jones suspended Tuesday night due to yellow cards, Bradley and Williams teamed up for their second straight World Cup Qualifier and looked like the fluid midfield pairing Klinsmann has missed.

The U.S. team is off to the hex
With a convincing win over Guatemala, the stress of this round of qualifying melted away as advancement to the hex was secured.

The U.S. got off to a jittery start but they pulled it back and played well for the rest of the game. Despite some confusion on the backline, it was overall a fine performance.

Hernandez has made his debut for the Guatemala-based club
Nearly four months after going on loan to Guatemala's Comunicaciones, Moises Hernandez has made his debut.

He recently made his first appearance when he came on as a 76th minute sub for the club in a 2-0 victory over Marquense on October 6. Comunicaciones are currently leading Guatemala's Liga Nacional and have a six point cushion over second place Municipal.

Brad Evans may be due for a recall
With injuries to multiple Americans before World Cup qualification dates, Jurgen Klinsmann will undoubtedly be looking for replacements to fill voids.

The issues began when Landon Donovan (knee) and Brek Shea (abdominal strain) were both announced to be unfit for the upcoming matches against Antigua and Barbuda and Guatemala. Shea was likely to see time at left midfield, at least according to the players selected and where he would best fit in. Donovan would have seen time at forward or central midfield, depending how Klinsmann decided to situate his attackers.
