Gyasi Zardes should get the nod vs. Colombia
First off, I must admit, this is as much a plausible wish-list as it is an attempt to decipher Klinsmann's plan.

The coach has promised to put out the strongest squad possible, but in a third-place game, against a likely questionably-motivated opponent, directly following a 4-0 loss where nearly every player on the field failed to impress, and with approximately half of the squad soon returning to Europe to begin pre-season training, there is no way to know what this means.

Malone hopes to land a job in Stuttgart
American defender Ryan Malone is currently training with Stuttgart Kickers in hopes of finding a new team.

Malone was released from 3rd Liga club FC Magdeburg after a frustratingly injury-hindered initial season in Europe. Following an initial period of adjustment, which would be expected from a player just out of the college game, the central defender did finally break into the team's starting lineup in late-October.

Klinsmann has to shake things up again vs. Argentina
Just when you think you begin to understand what's going on in Klinsi's mind, he manages to completely surprise you again.

After not needing to make any changes in three straight matches to begin the Copa América Centenario, the United States' coach Jürgen Klinsmann faced a dilemma with the suspension of DeAndre Yedlin, needing to come up with a new right back for the quarterfinal match against Ecuador. Everyone believed it was going to be Michael Orozco, considering he came onto the field once Yedlin picked up the red card against Paraguay and did well enough.
