U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann made three changes to his starting lineup for Sunday's World Cup prep match against Turkey, changing his left side by inserting defender Timmy Chandler and midfielder Brad Davis in place of DaMarcus Beasley and Alejandro Bedoya.

Captain Clint Dempsey started at forward in place of Chris Wondolowski for the match, the next to last for the Americans before they leave for the World Cup in Brazil. Dempsey, the U.S. captain, had been in the original lineup for Tuesday's 2-0 win over Azerbaijan in San Francisco but was scratched during warmups because of a sore groin.

Goalkeeper Tim Howard was set to make his 99th international appearance.
