U.S. bring in Torres for Slovenia game

News posted by

United States coach Bob Bradley has made one change to his tarting line-up, introducing midfielder Jose Torres instead of Ricardo Clark for their Group C match against Slovenia at Ellis Park on Friday.Torres will start in the centre of midfield alongside Michael Bradley while Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey will play behind lone striker Jozy Altidore.The back four, impressive in the opening 1-1 draw against England, remain unchanged and goalkeeper Tim Howard also retains his spot between the posts.Bradley's Slovenian counterpart Matjaz Kek named the same starting line-up that beat Algeria 1-0 in their opener, with Zlatko Dedic again preferred to Zlatan Ljubijankic up front.Kek has stuck with his preferred 4-4-2 formation with top scorer Milivoje Novakovic leading the attack, while Valter Birsa and Andraz Kirm will add bite on either flank.Captain Robert Koren and Aleksandar Radosavljevic will operate in the middle and Marko Suler will be in the centre of defence alongside Bostjan Cesar after shaking off a minor ankle injury.
