USA vs El Salvador in the Gold Cup 2013 soccer tournament quarterfinals takes place on Sunday, with the USA looking to live up to their billing as one of the competition favorites and progress to the semifinals. The match will kick off at 4 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The United States came through their group without too much problem; beating both Cuba and Belize with ease, completing those first two games with a combined score line of 10-2.
They did have a tougher test in their third and final group game against Costa Rica, but they were able to come through with another win, this time a solitary goal was enough to claim a 1-0 win.
The United States fans will be expecting their team to at least make the finals of this year's tournament, and many will be hoping that they can claim the tournament.
El Salvador have had a tough tournament so far, coming through as one of the best third place finishers, after claiming a win, a draw and a loss in their three games. They finished third in Group B behind Honduras and Trinidad & Tobago.
They will have to lift their game significantly if they are to pull off a stunning shock today against the United States.
They will be hoping to try and nullify the United States' more skillful players by getting right up in their faces and not allowing them any time to get comfortable on the ball, and not allow the USA to dictate possession. That may be easier said that done given the distance between these two teams in quality.
