ST. LOUIS (AP) - Tim Ream, DeAndre Yedlin, Bobby Wood and Gyasi Zardes were set to make their first World Cup qualifying starts for the United States, which began the road to Russia against St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Goalkeeper Brad Guzan started Friday night’s game at Busch Stadium. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann said Thursday that Tim Howard likely will be in goal for Tuesday’s qualifier at Trinidad and Tobago.

Klinsmann kept just four starters from last month’s exhibition loss to Costa Rica: Geoff Cameron in central defense, Ream at left back, and Jermaine Jones and Zardes in midfield.

Yedlin was at right back and Matt Besler joined Cameron in the middle of the back line. Captain Michael Bradley and Fabian Johnson were in the midfield, and Wood and Jozy Altidore up front.

Winslow McDowall started in goal for St. Vincent and defender Kevin Francis wass the captain. Other starters included defenders Roy Richards, Million Prescott and Reginal Richardson; midfielders Nazir McBernette, Dorren Hamlet and Seinard Bowens; and forwards Oalex Anderson, Tevin Slater and Gavin James.
