Fans of USA soccer can watch live online as the United States National Men’s Team faces Haiti, the next obstacle in the way of the USA campaign to repeat as CONCACAF Gold Cup Champions and capture their sixth championship of the region covering North America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
Team USA got off to a victorious start on Tuesday, standing firm against a surprisingly powerful offensive assault from Honduras before finally prevailing 2-1 behind a brace on two headers by 32-year-old Seattle Sounders — and former Fulham FC and Tottenham Hotspur — star Clint Dempsey.
To find out how to watch the USA vs. Haiti CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage match live online Friday, see the information in the final paragraph of this article. Kickoff at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 5:30 Pacific.
With Haiti and Panama drawing the other Group A game 0-0 on Tuesday, Team USA now sit comfortably atop the group. A win over Haiti followed by a draw or win in the USA match against Panama Monday gives the United States first place and clear passage through to the quarterfinals.
Despite coming away with the full three points in their tournament opener, the USA squad felt it put on a shaky performance Tuesday and looks to make a more definitive statement against what should be an overmatched, inexperienced Haiti side on Friday.
“Any time you enter a tournament, you want to start off with three points and we were able to do that. We know it wasn’t our best performance,” said goalie Brad Guzan, who plays his club soccer with Aston Villa of England’s Barclays Premier League. “a sign of a good team is when you don’t play well and you win the game and that’s what we did.”
In the latest FIFA world rankings, the United States places 34th, with Argentina at the top and much smaller countries such as Tunisia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Iceland, and Northern Ireland all ranking ahead of Team USA.
But Haiti sits at 79th in the world and has not defeated a USA team since 1969. But Haiti will be hoping for at least a repeat of the 2009 Gold Cup match when they took a 2-1 lead over the United States into added time, before Team USA pulled out a last-minute goal to escape with a draw.
