The U.S. men’s national team can take another big step toward qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup with a win tonight against El Salvador (7 p.m. ESPN2, TUDN).
The Americans are up against an El Salvador squad in desperation mode after three loses in four qualifiers, and Hugo Perez’s side knows that a loss tonight would all but end their hopes of a miracle run to Qatar.
For the USMNT, a win in Columbus would have the Americans in comfortable position heading into Sunday’s showdown with current first-place and undefeated side Canada, which is Honduras tonight hoping to maintain its hold on the top spot.
Here is the USMNT lineup for tonight’s match:
