We all expected it to be Mexico, but here we are, taking on Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz. (We were also hoping that Clint Dempsey would break the goal record against Mexico in the finals, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be.) It wasn’t an easy journey, but the US Men’s National Team made it to the Gold Cup Finals.
It may be a battle of the goalkeepers tonight, as the Colorado Rapids’ Tim Howard faces Philadelphia Union’s Andre Blake—both of whom have saved their teams more than once in this tournament. Jamaica has scored seven goals in the tournament, while the US has scored almost twice as many with 13.
The USMNT roster includes:
GK: Bill Hamid (D.C. United), Jesse Gonzalez (FC Dallas), Tim Howard (Colorado Rapids)
DEF: Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Omar Gonzalez (Pachuca), Matt Hedges (FC Dallas), Eric Lichaj (Nottingham Forest), Matt Miazga (Chelsea), Justin Morrow (Toronto FC), Jorge Villafana (Santos Laguna), Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City)
MID: Kellyn Acosta (FC Dallas), Paul Arriola (Club Tijuana), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Joe Corona (Club Tijuana), Dax McCarty (Chicago Fire), Darlington Nagbe (Portland Timbers), Chris Pontius (Philadelphia Union), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy)
F: Juan Agudelo (New England Revolution), Jozy Altidore (Toronto FC), Clint Dempsey(Seattle Sounders), Jordan Morris (Seattle Sounders)
