The Portuguese captain's fitness has been a cause of concern throughout the tournament but he will start as expected.
Sporting Kansas City player Graham Zusi comes in the United States starting line-up for the injured Jozy Altidore.
He is expected to play on the left with Clint Dempsey acting as a lone striker in a 4-5-1 formation.
USA: Howard; Johnson, Cameron, Besler, Beasley; Beckerman, Jones; Bedoya, Bradley, Zusi; Dempsey
