USA vs Jamaica
International – Friendlies
Date: Thursday, 6th June 2019
Kick-off at 00.00 UK/ 01.00 CET
Venue: Audi Field.
USA is in the process of rebuilding their football system and their failure to qualify for the world cup was quite a big blow to their sporting ambitions.
The Stars and Stripes have a tough task this summer when they commence the CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign alongside Panama, Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana in Group D.
In their last game, which was against Latin American giants Chile, the team managed a 1-1 draw. Both goals came early in the match, and for the US, the goal came from none other than Christian Pulisic.
Jamaica may be aiming for too much if they expect a great showing against this team. While they could hold on against teams of similar stature, the US might be hard to handle for them.
The team lost against Costa Rica in their last game, for a 1-0 scoreline, and before that to El Salvador to a 2-0 scorecard.
The Reggae Boys are in a relatively easy group with Honduras, El Salvador and Curacao; and will consider themselves as one of the favourites to make it to the Gold Cup knockout stage.

USA vs Jamaica Prediction
The US has the home advantage, and they have recorded fantastic h2h stats against Jamaica. They won five of the last six games against this team and recorded 12 of the last 14 wins.
At home, the record is even skewed with nine wins and a loss. Also, Jamaica has not been able to keep a clean sheet against the US in the last 15 matches, and they have never done it on the road.
Importantly, the US was unbeaten in 17 of their last 20 home games, while Jamaica lost three of their last four on the road. Keep note that they also failed to score against the US in three of their last five visits.
By all means expect the favorites, US, to take this game by the neck.
