KANSAS CITY, KS — The U.S. Men’s National Team takes on Panama in a match that has more more riding on it for the underdogs than the Americans (9:30pm Fox Sports 1).
The U.S. already clinched first place in Group A, but Panama needs a win to ensure a place in the quarterfinals. A loss would leave the ‘Canaleros’ on tenuous ground, and even a draw would leave Panama on shaky ground with just three points in third place in the group.
The U.S. will be trotting out a strong lineup tonight, with Clint Dempsey the only regular sitting out the action. Gyasi Zardes will get the nod up top, while Alejandro Bedoya and Alfredo Morales will be making their first appearances of the Gold Cup.
