International soccer fans can watch live online as the United States Men’s National Soccer Team travels to the islands of Trinidad & Tobago to face the Soca Warriors in the second match for both teams in Group Three of the CONCACAF 2018 World Cup Qualifier fourth round. Both Trinidad & Tobago and the United States come into the match with three points after victories in their opening group stage matches.
The United States blew away St. Vincent & the Grenadines 6-1 on Friday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri. Trinidad & Tobago — the only Caribbean island side ranked highly enough to earn a bye into the fourth round — had a more difficult time in their opener, edging Guatemala 2-1 at Mateo Flores Stadium in Guatemala City.

The fourth and fifth rounds of the CONCACAF 2018 World Cup qualifiers are played as group round-robin tournaments, after lower-ranked teams were thrown into knockout elimination tournaments in the first two rounds.
The United States has faced Trinidad & Tobago in 14 previous World Cup qualifying matches, with the Americans dominating their Caribbean neighbors, losing only once with just two draws in those matches. In all international competition, the United States Men’s team has won 16 against the Soca Warriors, losing just two with three draws.

To find out how to watch the Trinidad & Tobago vs. United States Men’s National Team 2018 World Cup Qualifier soccer match live online, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 3:30 Pacific, on Tuesday, November 17, at Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago.
A sellout crowd of about 23,000 is expected to turn out for the match, but they may or may not create a friendly environment for the hosts, with crowds on the island having a reputation for cheering on their team when they go ahead in a game — but booing and turning hostile when the home side falls behind.
“This is a strange place when it comes to football,” said Trinidad & Tobago Coach Stephen Hart said on Monday. “We have fans but we don’t really have supporters.”
United States Head Coach Jurgen Klinsmann remains dogged by rumors that his job will be in jeopardy if his team does not come out of Trinidad & Tobago with the full three points from the Tuesday match.
“You always have to keep the big picture in mind,” Klinsmann said in a Monday meeting with reporters. “And you also have to live with short-term successes and disappointments, which we had undoubtedly. We wanted to win the Gold Cup and we didn’t. The critiques that are expressed by some people are totally fine with me.”
Klinsmann is going with veteran goalkeeper Tim Howard in the net on Tuesday, sitting Brad Guzman who had taken over the job after Howard took a year-long sabbatical from international soccer following the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
