USMNT vs. Nicaragua Match Preview
The final test of the group stage for the US comes in the form of Gold Cup debutant Nicaragua. Traditionally a baseball nation, Nicaragua has had a rough go of things so far. They’ve lost their first 2 matches, to Panama and Nicaragua respectively, and haven’t looked very threatening going forward. The US sits atop Group B, and should also expect to win this one, but a draw would also most likely be enough to advance to the knockout stages. The US is coming off of a match against Martinique that was much closer than it should have been, so they will be looking to rebound here.
Here is the lineup that I think would work best for the US if they hope to get a result in this match:
