There aren't many coaches around the world who could generate controversy with a 6-0 win, but Jurgen Klinsmann's special relationship with the fans and media who follow his USA Men's National Team is nothing if not unusual.
Sacha Kljestan and Christian Pulisic turned the last 30 minutes or so of USMNT's romp over St. Vincent and the Grenadines into their own personal highlight reel, and now Klinsi is being encouraged to hand them starting spots. He might do, he might not: either way there is criticism he is sure to attract, regardless of the result on the field.
There will be changes to the lineup that started against SVG: Klinsmann has to account for the absence of Matt Besler (allowed to leave the camp to be with his wife and newborn child) and DeAndre Yedlin (suspended); Michael Bradley is back from suspension, and it is difficult to imagine him being left out of the starting XI.
There is a very small chance USMNT gets knocked out of World Cup qualifying in this round of games. If the USA loses to T&T and Guatemala beats SVG and those results combine to turn around USMNT's 12 goal advantage over Los Chapines in goal difference - then Guatemala will progress to the Hex at USA's expense.
But that seems an extremely unlikely outcome. First and foremost, the Soca Warriors did not look sharp against Guatemala last week. Head coach Stephen Hart has promised changes to the starting lineup (at least one is enforced: defender Sheldon Bateau is suspended for the USMNT match), but his team looked like it needed more than just a positional change or two to get back to its best.
If we are lucky, both coaches will go brave for what is effectively a warm-up for the Hexagonal, and we'll see two of the most promising teenagers in CONCACAF go head to head: Pulisic for USMNT and Levi Garcia for T&T.
