USA vs Jamaica takes place in a World Cup Qualifier in Kingston on Friday night with the United States hoping to put in a good performance and continue on their path to the Brazil World Cup 2014. The game is scheduled to kick off at 9.20 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
USA have not been consistent in recent matches against Belgium and Germany, losing in their game against Belgium, before defeating a revamped Germany team in their International Friendly matches.
Team USA arrived in Jamaica well ahead of their fixture to adjust to the environment, as well as to watch Mexico play against the Reggae Boyz. They have had time to prepare meticulously and will be hyped up ahead of the game to put in a good performance and claim the win.
Meanwhile Jamaica is bottom of the CONCACAF rankings at the moment, and the United States will be expected to beat them. USA is in fourth place in the CONCACAF hexagonal right not, and in order to advance automatically teams are vying to get into the top three positions.
Fourth place is not hopeless, however, and the team that eventually finishes in fourth place will play off against New Zealand to claim the one remaining spot for the World Cup.
Expect USA to come out with high intensity and look to maintain the momentum they gained through beating Germany, and if they can claim an early goal it will certainly relax the players to settle in and put in a good performance. However, the longer the game goes on without a goal, the United States are likely to get more desperate and Jamaica will be hoping to hit them on the break and claim an unlikely win.
