USA vs Jamaica Preview: Team News, Latest Form, and Possible Lineups
Check out the latest news and information on both teams here, including our predicted USA vs Jamaica lineups.
As they look at the upcoming Gold Cup as a chance to further prove their status as one of the emerging footballing nations in the world, USA is one of the main favourites to go all the way in this competition. The team won three of the last five editions of Gold Cup, including the last one in which they managed to beat Mexico after extra time in a memorable final.
USA Predicted Lineup:
Turner – Yedlin, Robinson, Miazga, Tolkin – Sands, A. Morris – Roldan, Busio, Vazquez – Cowell
Having reached the finals twice in the last four Gold Cup tournaments, Jamaica is hoping for another deep run this year. They aren't among the main favourites though, with the USA, Canada, and Mexico all more likely to get to the last stage, but Jamaica is a solid team and at least they can hope to get out of the group stages.
Jamaica Predicted Lineup:
Blake – Brown, Mariappa, King, Bell – Richards, Russell, Lambert, Parris – Nicholson, Burke
*Starting lineups are usually announced 1hr before the kick-off
Player to Watch: Brandon Vazquez
One of the players who could stand out at this tournament for the USA team is Brandon Vazquez, the forward for Cincinnati in the MLS league who is still on the younger side, but with plenty of experience.
That being said, Vazquez only played a few games for the senior USA team so far and this tournament will be his chance to prove that he can be one of the key building blocks for the future.
