I actually quite like that lineup, but would replace Juan Agudelo for a true winger in Josh Gatt and Edson Buddle with the more versatile Chris Wondolowski. Obviously Beckerman isn't ideal, but in the hole against a bad team Canada he'll have greater protection. Brad Evans is really the only other player on the roster available in that position. Even then, Evans plays more of a classic center mid role for the Sounders with Ozzie Alonso providing the cover.
Agudelo can come on as a sub, a role in which he's performed much better for the national team. Will Bruin and Brad Davis will probably feature at some point in front of their hometown fans.
