Jose Torres, who started in the 1-0 home win over Jamaica last month, was dropped because of a bruised right foot.
While the U.S. is ranked 32nd, Guatemala 81st and Antigua 106th, Klinsmann is expecting difficult games. He thought back to March, when the U.S. under-23 team was eliminated from Olympic qualifying when it allowed a stoppage-time goal to El Salvador.
"What happened to the Olympic team was a huge warning to whoever thinks CONCACAF is an easy region to go through and qualify," he said.
