Teams can make up to six roster changes between the group stage and knockout stages so assuming the U.S. advance -- it would be a colossal shock if they didn't -- then Bruce Arena can send as many as six guys home and replace them with anyone else on the preliminary roster. That could mean Tim Howard, Jozy Altidore or Michael Bradley, amonh others, joining the squad.
