The United States Men’s National Soccer Team breathed new life into its floundering bid to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Friday, and when Americans face Panama, they’ll attempt to bring their soaring spirits from the 6-0 victory over Honduras into Panama City in a match that will live stream on Tuesday as Team USA looks to move up the CONCACAF “Hexagonal” table into a qualifying spot.
A victory would leave Team USA winless before Friday’s game, with six points and in third place on the table.

Panama, however, presents a dangerous challenge for Team USA. While the country had never qualified for a FIFA World Cup, Manager Hernán Darío Gómez has led the team through a quick progression which has seen Los Canaleros jump to third place in the CONCACAF “Hex.” But a disappointing 1-0 loss to Trinidad & Tobago on Friday dealt the young team a setback that they will need to quickly put behind them to have a chance against the American side.
Can Manager Bruce Arena, along with his star player in veteran Clint Dempsey, continue the confidence-building momentum from U.S. Men’s National Team’s dominate 6-0 victory over Honduras on Friday? Or will a determined Panama sidetake a major step toward sealing up their first-ever spot in a FIFA World Cup by dealing Team USA a shocking upset?
