USMNT Players to Watch in the 2017 Gold Cup

1:41 | Planet Futbol         Juan Carlos Osorio's suspension before Gold Cup changes everything for Mexico

This Saturday, July 8, 2017 (4:00 PM Pacific) Martinique will play Nicaragua at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee for a 2017 Gold Cup group stage match. The U.S. has 30 wins, one defeat and three draws in Gold Cup group play, losing to Panama in 2011.

But Panama forged a strong response and Miguel Camargo, who plays his club football for New York City, ensured the first match in Group B ended level. "We didn't do a good job of establishing a rhythm, getting our team more involved in the game", Arena continued. All but six players on the 23-man roster are from Major League Soccer. Panama will certainly make life hard and have some very physical players in their side who can nullify the United States going forward. They held the ball here and there, but nothing came of it.

The winless in its last three Gold Cup matches, its longest skid. The Sporting KC striker redirected a Rowe cross into the area with a first-time shot that snuck just inside Calderon's far post to give the USA a 1-0 lead.

This team's chemistry should improve over time. Probably not. But it's realistic for us. I think we're hungry. He scored his first goal for team United States of America on a free kick in a friendly against Ghana earlier this month, and has shown the potential to be a quality two-way player. If you're confused how "countries" like England, Scotland and Puerto Rico have "national" teams, you're not alone, but all I know is for teams like Guadeloupe or French Guiana the Gold Cup is the highest competition they can partake in.

Finding themselves in a group with the relatively weaker sides of Canada and French Guiana, both Costa Rica and Honduras will see tonight's game as a great opportunity, as the victor will most likely go on to win the group and have the best seed in the elimination rounds.

There was a lot more action in the second half, but poor passing in the final third limited the Americans' chances, while Panama simply couldn't get its best looks on net. They now sit 4th in the Hexagonal in their attempt to qualify for their first ever World Cup. Goalkeeper Jaime Penedo made two miraculous saves in the final half-hour to secure the victory and earn an LA Galaxy contract.

Just before the end of the first half-time, Scott Arfield doubled the lead of the protected of head coach Octavio Zambrano. "To have my family there [from Victoria] and able to watch it live made it that much more special". "We have a bunch of good teams here". "It's benefited me greatly, obviously". Los Canaleros, on the other hand, plan to take advantage of the opportunity that presented itself and attempt to record a rare win over USMNT. Once again, Guzan came up with a great save, this time on a powerful close-range strike from Torres. "Obviously started the year with not the most ideal circumstances, little bit of a shock to the system".
