After a dramatic win last Friday against Jamaica, the United States Men’s National Team (USMNT) set off to Seattle to face Panama in their next World Cup Qualifier (WCQ).
The late header by Brad Evans kept hope alive for the Americans as they look to qualify for the World Cup Finals in Brazil 2014. The game will air tonight on ESPN and if you’re ITP (Inside The Perimeter) a fun place to watch the game would be Fado’s Irish Pub in Buckhead. If Jozy Altidore can continue his streak with more goals I think we’ll have a good chance of winning in Seattle. It will be an interesting match as hexagonal insanity continues tonight with the absence of a few notable players.
Panama’s top scorer Blas Pérez is out with an illness and didn’t even make the trip to Seattle (uh oh). The US side isn’t having much luck either with Graham Zusi out on suspension (yellow card suspension) and Jermaine Jones suffered a concussion in last week’s win against the Reggae Boyz (Jamaica’s National Team).
In case you missed the last-minute goal that saved the USA from ruin in Kingston, you can see it HERE
Whether you’re at home or you decide to hit a pub, watch ESPN tonight at 10pm EST and support our USMNT as they take on Panama (who have a good chance of qualifying for the first time in their country’s history!) It should be an exciting game!
