USA vs Panama Match Details:

League: CONCACAF Gold Cup

Venue: Snapdragon Stadium  

Time: 13th July, 5:00 am

Match Preview:

USA

The USA can secure their place in a fourth consecutive Gold Cup final with a victory against Panama in the semi-final at the Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego. The USA are coming into this tournament as the reigning Gold Cup champions which subsequently has put a massive target on their backs. However, they have risen to the occasion when needing to so far, scoring 15 goals in just four matches, the most they have managed at this stage of the competition since 2011 (16). They are unbeaten in their last ten games in all competitions and this also includes winning the CONCACAF Nations League. They are really playing some amazing football and are announcing themselves as one of the nations to look out for.

Panama

Panama put on quite the show in their quarter-final clash, going ahead after nineteen minutes and cruising from there, leaving no doubt about their place in the final four. Prior to their previous match, Thomas Christiansen’s team had gone unnoticed, but after dominating the Maroons with 62% possession and only conceding one shot on goal, the Panamanians have established their rightful place among the major countries in this region. This defensive performance by the players must be especially encouraging for Thomas Christiansen as this was the first time his team has kept a clean sheet since late March. Panama’s form in this tournament has been near perfect winning three games and drawing one and they will be looking to carry on this form in this game.
