USMNT: The U.S. may be 4-0-0 in the tournament and having yet to concede a goal, but they’ve been far from impressive in three of the four games. After cutting it close against Curacao, it feels like it’s time for Jozy Altidore to go back into that No. 9 role over Gyasi Zardes. We’ll see if Gregg Berhalter makes the move.
Jamaica: This is a team that has a bit of talent but hasn’t lived up to expectations either. Leon Bailey is quite the player, but where this team has to improve is on the creativity in attack. Having already beaten the U.S. last month, they’ll feel confident in doing it again.
USMNT vs. Jamaica prediction
Altidore starts and gets the winner as the U.S. moves on.
Pick: USA 2, Jamaica 1
