This is only the second match of the final round of the World Cup qualifiers in Central America and the Caribbean, and the pressure has begun to show. After the Canadian and American men’s national teams drew in their first game on Thursday, both sides will strive to win in Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday night. But as the home team, USMNT will definitely face greater pressure.
Due to the missed FIFA World Cup, the slow start of qualifying is doomed to the fate of USMNT in 2018, and everything except Sunday’s win will be considered the same. As the Americans will face Honduras on Wednesday, the team’s third game will not be easier. Canada will return to host El Salvador.
The competition between the American and Canadian men’s teams is intensifying. Canada has made great strides in becoming more competitive. The two sides faced off in the CONCACAF Gold Cup group match in July. USMNT won 1-0, but Canada deserves a better result. The team split the Central and North American and Caribbean Nations League in 2019.
Eight teams participated in the Qualifying Tournament of Central, North America and the Caribbean. The top three teams in the CONCACAF Octagon Division will advance to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fourth-ranked team will participate in the intercontinental playoffs and get tickets to Qatar.
Sports news will provide real-time updates and highlights of this critical early game between mainland competitors.

21st minute: Bolyan continued in the game, and Anthony Robinson of the United States immediately tested him with Bolyan’s saved shot. But the Canadian goalkeeper still seems to feel a little uncomfortable.
19th minute: The game is suspended. The Canadian starter’s goalkeeper Milan Boljan fell down, his gesture was like a groin problem. The trainer is on the court.

7:54 in the evening: No matter what the story is here, the duel between Phonzie and Dest is definitely worth watching. Durst moved to the right-back position after the start of the left-back game against El Salvador:
Damn, TSN just said that Alfonso Davis played against Sergino Durst at BMO in October 2019 and cooked him
In my mind, Dest has not yet made a promise to the United States, and DeAndre Yedlin participated in the competition in October
Durst’s performance against Davis in November 2019 was actually good
