Several players make World Cup case as rusty Mexico rumbles to win

After Jonathan Gonzalez's second-half cameo against Bosnia, ESPN's Herculez Gomez questions Juan Carlos Osorio's decision to deploy him in a more advanced position.

USMNT Interim coach Dave Sarachan provides his assessment of defenders Ike Opara, Matt Polster and goalkeeper Zach Steffen.

CARSON, Calif. -- Balance is a major consideration whenever a manager puts together a roster or a starting XI. The coach has to weigh attack vs. defense, youth vs. experience and so on.

The stakes involved also play a part. The calculus is different for a friendly than, say, a World Cup qualifier, which brings us to Sunday's friendly against Bosnia & Herzegovina, one that ended in a 0-0 tie.
