Following Nations League success, fringe USMNT set to start Gold Cup title defense against EPL honed Jamaica

The US soccer army is on top in the continent recently after tasting the success in CONCACAF Nations League. Their Captain America returned with his troops to conquer the Gold Cup and continue the country’s dream run.

Currently, the USA soccer team is going through a memorable time. In the final of the CONCACAF Nations League, they beat Canada and add another glory to their soccer history. 

Recently America produces some great players and built a resilient squad that can challenge any heavyweight in the world. Christian Pulisic the armed leader of America is ready to hunt and capture the Gold Cup for the 8th time in their history.

USA is also looking to equalize the record of winning the trophy with their arch-rival Mexico. 

Jamaica to provide stern challenge to USMNT rookies

At present Jamaica is struggling to win games as they won their last international fixture against Suriname on 8th June 2022. One year passed since they taste a win. 

Gold Cup


While on the other hand, the USA is at their peak. USMNT register a very comfortable win against Canada that help them to kiss the shining trophy of the CONCACAF Nations League.

Jamaica will try to get their train back on track and to end their one-year winless campaign against America. However, it will never be an easy task for them to stop the bullet train of USMNT.

Jamaica even lost a friendly fixture against Morocco A team with a 3-0 margin. They were not even able to provide a tough challenge for them. America is one of the favourite nations to lift the trophy this season.

Although Jamaica’s power soccer may provide some setbacks to America. But there is a very slight possibility for Jamaica to win or even manage to get one point from the fixture.

If Jamaica continues to show their struggling form against the USA then they may witness a big defeat in their opening fixture of the Gold Cup.

Jamaica’s current world ranking is 63 and it is quite sure when the new ranking will be declared by FIFA Jamaica may drop down to some spots. 

When is USMNT vs Jamaica?  

In the opening fixture of the Gold Cup, the CONCACAF Nations League champions will begin their campaign against the struggling Jamaican side. The match will start at 9:30 pm (UST) time. 

The match will be played in the Soldier Field stadium of Illinois in the USA. Huge support is expected to see for the home team as they look to continue their glory.

We expect an easy win for the USMNT but soccer is an unpredictable game anything can happen at any time and Jamaica will look to end their winless run.   

Will it be a simple win for USMNT or Jamaica will shock the CONCACAF Nations League champions? who will you support and who do you think is going to win this match? Share your thought in the comment box below.
