Rimando starts, Gil misses out in USA v. Chile featuring new tactical shape

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando has been handed the start, and Luis Gil is missing from the 18-man roster as the United States takes on Chile at 4 p.m. MST.

How to watch USMNT vs Chile (4pm MST)

Rimando will have a chance to continue his strong streak for the United States, who have never lost a match in which the RSL goalkeeper starts. He's 13-3-0 all-time, which is nothing to sneeze at.

Gil's absence is probably not for injury reasons, with US coach Jurgen Klinsmann playing an experimental lineup that trends toward experience over youth. Klinsmann's lineup takes shape as a 3-5-2, featuring three center backs with Jermaine Jones at the center of them.
