Berhalter makes 7 changes for US against Chile

March 26, 2019

HOUSTON (AP) — U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter changed seven starters for Tuesday night’s exhibition against Chile, keeping only midfielders Christian Pulisic, forwards Paul Arriola and Gyasi Zardes and left back Tim Ream.

Ethan Horvath was the goalkeeper instead of Sean Johnson.

DeAndre Yedlin started at right back in place of Tyler Adams, who returned to RB Leipzig in Germany after Friday’s 1-0 win over Ecuador in Orlando, Florida. Yedlin captained the U.S. for the first time, replacing Ream.

Omar Gonzalez and Matt Miaza took over from John Brooks and Aaron Long in central defense, Michael Bradley replaced Wil Trapp in defensive midfield and Christian Roldan took over from Weston McKennie, who sprained an ankle during Friday’s match.

Arriola and Corey Baird flanked Zardes in the 4-3-3 formation, with Baird replacing Jordan Morris.
