MAT vs USA: After a disappointing loss in their opening game of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Martinique will lock horns against the USA at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City.
Martinique last played Canada in their season’s opening game. Martinique had a surprising start with striker Emmanuel Rivière scoring in the 10th minute itself.
Canada made a remarkable comeback with Cyle Larin providing the equaliser, followed by goals from Jonathan Osorio, Stephen Eustáquio and Theo Corbeanu. In the end, Canada finished with a remarkable 4-1 win.
The USA on the other hand last played Haiti in their opening game of Group B. The USA started well and it was reflected in the scoresheet. Eight minutes into the game, defender Sam Vines scored the only and winning goal for the USA. With a 1-0 comfortable win, they bagged three important points.
The USA will be the favourites in the upcoming encounter against Martinique.
