It’s the final game of the fourth round of CONCACAF qualification for the World Cup. Every victory is one step closer to the 2018 tournament, so expect USA and Trinidad & Tobago to bring it on Sept. 6. HollywoodLife.com wants you to see every second so click to watch.
The United States Men’s National Team may have already punched their ticket for the next round of the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) World Cup qualifiers, but a win would mean a better position in the Hex round.
They’ll face the leaders of Group C, Trinidad and Tobago, on American soil. The action from the Everbank Field in Jacksonville, Florida should be incredible. The game kicks off at 8:00 PM ET so be ready to see every thrilling kick, goal and save!

Though, perhaps the US might think twice about trying to unseat Trinidad & Tobago at the top of the table. The group winner faces Mexico in the start of the six-team, home-and-away round-robin group play (aka the ‘Hexagonal’ or ‘Hex’) per SB Nation. They then play Costa Rica. Yikes. This might be the one time where second place is the true winner.
Though, don’t tell that to manager Jurgen Klinsmann, 52. “The situation is very clear. We badly want to win this game,” he said ahead of the match, per the International Business Times. “We want to finish first in our group in order to get straight into a big one in the Hexagonal.” Well, as Ric Flair, 67, would say, “To be the man, you got to beat the man.” The USMNT won’t improve unless they learn how to hang with the best in the world.
However, the US can’t really sleep on T&T. There’s still a slim chance the Stars and Stripes could miss the next stage. If the US men lose this game and Guatemala somehow make up the 12-goal gap, the Americans will be watching the 2018 World Cup from home. Though, the last time these two teams tangled, it ended in 0-0 draw. If history repeats, both teams will advance.
American soccer enthusiasts are hoping to see if Christian Pulisic, 17, and Sacha Kljestan, 30, will team up again, since they helped lead the USMNT over Saint Vincent and the Grenadines (no, that’s not Anne Clark’s, 33, new band) in a 6-0 blowout. Young players Rubio Rubin, 20, and Paul Arriola, 21, could also make an appearance to get some time out on the pitch.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers?
