The United States are three wins away from capturing the 2015 Gold Cup and with it, a spot in the 2017 Confederations Cup. And the draw is breaking their way too. While they will take on a bad Cuba team in the quarterfinals, Mexico and Costa Rica will have to play each other and one of the Americans' top contenders will be out of the tournament.
Looking at that, it would seem like everything is going great. After all, the U.S. are unquestioned favorites to win the Gold Cup right now. But the Americans aren't playing especially well either so their optimism is largely a matter of struggles elsewhere and not their own good play. Sp going into the quarterfinals, the U.S. would love to put together a dominating performance against Cuba and finally make their supremacy a matter of their own doing.
The match will be televised live on FOX at 5 p.m. ET. John Strong and Alexi Lalas, the network's top broadcast team, will be in the booth for the call. There will also be a 30-minute pre-game show, hosted by Rob Stone from the FOX studio in Los Angeles.
