"It's something that a team has to deal with throughout a tournament," defender Matt Besler said. "For the most part we've been pretty fortunate throughout this tournament to have some consistency in the lineup. I don't think that happens very often. Now is the time that [the absences] do happen, and we have to make sure we respond."
"It is different playing with different guys. Everyone has different styles," Besler said. "I think as a team we play the same but when you have different guys back there you have to make little adjustments depending on who's back there. But for me I have experience with both. I've played in World Cup qualifiers with Geoff, with Omar. I feel comfortable with anyone, really."
