U-S-A! U-S-A! It’s time to get your voices finely tuned to cheer on our boys as they take on Guatemala in an important CONCACAF World Cup 2018 qualifying match against Guatemala on Mar. 25. The game takes place in Guatemala City at the Estadio Mateo Flores in what should be a sell out. But lucky for you, we have you covered with the live stream which you can watch by clicking down!
The US will looking for victory to stay top of Group C in CONCACAF qualifying, they have four points from their first two semifinal matches and are above Trinidad & Tobago on goal difference. Guatemala themselves need the three points as they are placed in third position in the table and have to keep up with the top two.
The red, white and blue has a full roster to pick from, with heroic goalkeeper Tim Howard between the posts hoping to keep Guatemala’s attack in check. The Premier League legend will be returning to the US in the summer to play in the MLS, so it’ll the perfect opportunity for his teammates to welcome him back to the fold. Forward Clint Dempsey will also hope to improve on his 48 goals for the men’s national team as he edges closer to the all-time US scoring record.
The omens look good for the US, they are currently undefeated in 21-games against Guatemala. That’s the longest unbeaten streak they’ve EVER had against any international soccer nation. But in their recent games against Guatemala, it hasn’t been easy. In the 2014 World Cup qualifying match, Los Chapines held our boys to a 1-1 tie. In 2010 and 2006, the teams couldn’t be separated again — with both games ending 0-0.
The US knows that if it wins its next two games, that would see them go through to the Hexagonal Round, and get closer to qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, which will take place in Russia.
But they’ll have to be wary of Guatemala’s top striker, Marco Pappa. He will be familiar to American soccer fans because he plays in the MLS for Colorado Rapids. He’s started 2016 in good form, including scoring a last-minute winner for the Rapids against the LA Galaxy on Mar. 12.
HollywoodLifers, will team USA come out on top? What do you think will be the score?
