The winning streak ends but Klinsi's Kids have figured it out enough to earn results in tough places. The new faces will test the side's equilibrium, but the system/style – which sure resembles Bob Bradley's system/style at this point – is pretty set. And good enough to get a result in Europe.

Look, there's no shame in the streak ending here. It's an experimental roster with no expectations of chemistry. They'll fight like usual, but no one's bossing possession against this power-packed Bosnian side.

It will be a tough game. Not only because of Bosnia’s strong squad, but also because there many new faces in the USMNT squad. It's a good way for Klinsmann to test whether the technique/style showcased in the Gold Cup applies outside of CONCACAF.

US fans have become attached to the US' 11-game winning streak, but this Bosnia team has weapons that CONCACAF can't offer. Edin Dzeko, for one, will be a handful for Geoff Cameron and (perhaps?) John Anthony Brooks. It will be competitive, but the hosts keep their own unbeaten run alive.

The US has played some solid road games under Klinsmann, and I expect another here. But missing some key players on both sides of the ball, especially in central defense, will be too much to overcome against one of the stronger teams in Europe. The US' ability to stay organized on defensive set pieces could be the difference between a loss and a tie.

Because this is going to be a match where Klinsmann is going to scout players, I expect a tough battle. Holding the ball in the midfield will prove to be the key for the US, with Michael Bradley being the decisive factor. If Alejandro Bedoya plays, he will be important for the Americans to attack on the wings.

Without their first-choice backline, the US will struggle mightily against the likes of Dzeko and Ibisevic. Bradley and Jones will try to hold it together but ultimately the US will crumble against one of Europe's top sides.

No doubt Bosnia's a step up from some of the opposition the US has been rolling over this summer. Klinsmann's side will grab a goal, but there is just too much attacking talent in the Bosnia squad for a makeshift US defense to hold back.
