The U.S. Men's National Team will take on Panama on Monday (July 13) at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Missouri as they try to go for a perfect 3-0 win-loss column in CONCACAF Gold Cup Group A at 6:30 p.m. You can watch the match online through live stream free using the links below.
The U.S. Men's team is coming off from a fresh win against Haiti, 1-0, on a goal by Clint Dempsey in just one minute into the second half. Dempsey scored his 44th international career goals in that match against Haiti, which is less than 13 goals compared with London Donovan's U.S. record, said Oregon Live.
U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said the U.S. team will still play their best on Monday against the Panamanian side despite securing a spot in the Gold Cup quarterfinals by being on top of Group A of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, reported the Bleacher Report.
"We had the privilege to make a lot of changes and give almost everybody the experience. Now we also have a privilege to handle the third match the way we want to from a coach's perspective because we already won the group. It's very nice and a compliment to the team, but it was a lot of work as you saw," Klinsmann told reporters after his team defeated Haiti.
Still Klinsmann is expected to make some adjustments on Monday's game if he wants to keep a 3-0 record in Group A of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup
He added, "There was still some stuff that was not so good, so we keep working on that. It's a nice feeling knowing we are already first, but it doesn't mean that we are slowing down now. It should be the opposite. We've got to keep raising the bar."
Meanwhile, Panama head coach Hernan Dario Gomez is noticing a trend in his team and it's not one that he likes.
For a second consecutive match, Panama gave up a late goal and settled for a share of the points. First, it was an 86th minute equalizer by Haiti's Duckens Nazon on Tuesday in Frisco, Texas, and, on Friday night, Andy Najar scored the tying goal for Honduras in the 81st minute of another 1-1 draw at Gillette Stadium.
"It's true. We've been asking this question in Panama for a long time and it happened again," Gomez said. "The game was hard. We fought, but at the end we gave up this goal."
The United States became the first team to book a berth in the quarterfinals following a difficult 1-0 win over Haiti on Friday, but that doesn't mean coach Jürgen Klinsmann intends to take it easy for the final group stage match Monday against Panama.
"It's a nice feeling knowing we're already first, but it doesn't mean we're slowing down now," he said. "It should be actually the opposite, keep kind of raising the bar."
While there's a strong likelihood of lineup changes, Klinsmann believes the United States has a responsibility to play to win that game.
"The approach is picking up more rhythm, playing for another three points, finishing off the group with three wins. We take that very seriously," stressed the 50-year-old. "We also know we have an influence on who is going through, so we are not taking the foot off the pedal there."
