USA will hope to rebound from a sluggish start to their 2017 Gold Cup campaign when they face Martinique in Group B at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, on Wednesday.
The U.S. were held to a 1-1 draw by Panama in their opening match on Saturday. Coach Bruce Arena will hope for more attacking impetus from his men against a Martinique side who top the group after beating Nicaragua 2-0 on Saturday.
Arena had Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer to thank for the point in the opener. The 26-year-old attacker bagged his second goal in as many international matches.
Netting in back-to-back contests gave Dwyer a rare distinction in the annals of U.S. national team history, according to the Associated Press (h/t Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times): “He joined team-mate Paul Arriola in scoring goals in his first two international matches, a feat accomplished by nine U.S. players since 1916.”
Dwyer might have scored more against Panama had the supply been more consistent. Unfortunately, talented midfielder Kellyn Acosta failed to thrive.
Being strong in midfield will be vital against a Martinique team that got two goals from central areas. One of those was a wonder strike from Legia Warsaw midfield man Steeven Langil.
The 29-year-old’s long-striding power and fierce shot will be assets on the break. Striking on the counter will be Martinique’s best tactic after the way Panama caught the U.S. cold several times in the opener.
Overall, though, Arena’s squad should have enough ingenuity in forward areas to punish a suspect Martinique defence. Expect the USMNT to put a first win on the board in this edition of the CONCACAF championship.
