  DID YOU KNOW?

  • The USA is coming off a big three away points, as the Yanks defeated Jamaica 2-1 on Friday thanks to a goal from Jozy Altidore and a late winner from Brad Evans.
  • Panama managed a 0-0 draw at home against Mexico on Friday, leaving the team in fourth place in the Hexagonal with six points from four matches. La Marea Roja have played three of their four matches at home.
  • The United States will be without two starters from its match against Jamaica: Jermaine Jones, who is out with a concussion, and Graham Zusi, who misses out with yellow-card accumulation
  • Panama will also be missing a key piece, as star striker Blas Perez stayed back in Panama with a case of gastroenteritis.
  • After going since November 2011 without scoring for the national team, Altidore now has goals in two straight U.S. matches.
  • These two teams last met in a friendly in January 2012. The USA won that game 1-0 in Panama City thanks to a goal from Graham Zusi.
