CLEVELAND.- The United States will take on Trinidad and Tobago in Cleveland on Saturday night, the second match for both teams in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup.
The reigning tournament champions and Group D leaders defeated Guyana 4-0 on Tuesday night, while Trinidad and Tobago fell to Panama by a 2-0 score-line.
A brace from Tyler Boyd and a goal apiece from Paul Arriola and Gyasi Zardes helped Gregg Berhalter’s team to the 4-0 result.
Nathan Lewis and Joevin Jones were two bright spots for Trinidad and Tobago Manager Dennis Lawrence in the loss to Panama.
Saturday’s match-up is the first between the two countries since Trinidad and Tobago defeated the United States 2-1 in Couva in October 2017, a result that saw the U.S. drop to fifth place in the final Concacaf Hexagonal table and fail to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The match will kick-off at 8 PM ET at First Energy Field in Cleveland, preceded by Panama versus Guyana.
