The United States is first place in Group A of the Gold Cup after one matchday. A win over Honduras, coupled with Panama and Haiti playing to a draw, ensured that the favored Americans would vault to the top quickly, and now the U.S. has a chance to do more - clinch a spot in the knockout stages. A win in today's second group stage match would do just that, and the Americans shouldn't have much trouble doing that.
The U.S. are set to take on Haiti, one of the weaker teams in the Gold Cup. The group stage of this tournament is almost always ugly, with physical play and shoddy refereeing taking center stage, so it wouldn't be a surprise if the Americans don't thrash Haiti. Still, they have a considerable talent advantage and should be sitting on six points with a knockout stage spot when the referee blows his final whistle.
The match will be televised live on Fox Sports 1 at 8:30 p.m. John Strong will be on the call, which will be the case all tournament, and Rob Stone will host a 30-minute pre-game show from Los Angeles.
