CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal match analysis
Wednesday, July 12
USA vs. Panama
The US looked shaky at times in the quarterfinal win over Canada. If not for a Canada own goal late in extra time, the Americans would probably be watching the semifinal round rather than playing in it. Still, the US has had a great tournament overall thus far, and should have a significant edge of a Panama side that has conceded nine goals in the last seven matches.
Panama won one of the easier groups in this tournament and then got a favorable draw against an outmatched and undermanned Qatar team in the quarterfinals. It faces a much tougher task against the US on American soil, and defense will have to be a priority to keep this one close early on. The US had the best goal differential in group play. They scored more than twice as many goals as Panama through those first three matches.
Mexico vs. Jamaica
Mexico needed until the second half to really get its offense going in the quarterfinal match against Costa Rica, but that’s a luxury El Tri has when its defense is so suffocating. Mexico surrendered just one shot on goal in the 2-0 win over Costa Rica. Lately the team has looked more like what many expected from the early tournament favorite, helping Mexico bounce back from a disappointing finish in the CONCACAF Nations League last month.
Jamaica had to make do with less offensive output in the quarterfinal win over Guatemala, but Amari’i Bell’s perfect strike was enough for a 1-0 victory to put the squad through to the semifinals. The Jamaican roster has several talented forwards who’ve made waves in the English Premier League of late, and the team needs them to come up big against a strong Mexico team in order to have a chance here.
