The U.S. men’s national team started off shaky in their 1-0 victory over Haiti in the Gold Cup Sunday, but the work continues with a match-up against Martinique Thursday.
Martinique comes into the match with a tough road ahead of them to make it out of the group stage following a 4-1 loss to Canada in their first group stage match.
Elsewhere in the Gold Cup, Mexico surprisingly drew 0-0 with Trinidad Tobago despite a 30-4 shot advantage for El Tri. To make matters worse, star forward Hirving Lozano left with a head injury that is expected to sideline him for 4 to 6 weeks.
Mexico’s chance at redemption comes Wednesday against Guatemala who are eager to rebound after a 2-0 loss to El Salvador in their opening match.
In club soccer, American defender Henry Wingo continues his quest to qualify for the Champions League with Hungarian side Ferencvárosi TC. Wingo has established himself as a starter at right back and Ferencvarosi is in a good position to advance to the next round of qualifying after defeating Prishtina 3-0 in the first leg.
In the Copa Libertadores, Internacional and midfielder Johnny Cardoso take on Olimpia in the round of 16. For Cardoso, the 19 year-old American endured a tough spell to start the season, but he has appeared in the last six matches.
