Here we are at Lincoln Financial Field where over 50,000 fans are expected for today's match between the U.S. and Turkey. For the U.S., it's the send-off match before the team flies to South Africa tomorrow.

A few minutes ago, U.S. coach Bob Bradley announced his starters for today's game. Here's what he's going with: GK Tim Howard, D Jonathan Spector, D Carlos Bocanegra, D Jay DeMerit, D Clarence Goodson, M Michael Bradley, M Landon Donovan, M Ricardo Clark, M Benny Feilhaber, F Clint Dempsey, F Jozy Altidore.

For the U.S., this is the first indication of Bradley's potential starting squad. Of course, during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Czech Republic, Bradley played his "bubble guys", using the time to make final evaluation before cutting his roster from 30 to 23.

Today's match kicks off in about 45 minutes. U.S. team just ran onto the field, as did Turkey. You can check out the quick-hit video of that in the video player below on the right.
