Jamaica vs. USA, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

The US will be out to get a better result than their last trip to Kingston as they face Jamaica in their first of three qualifiers over the next two weeks.

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The United States face the first of three qualifiers that could give them the chance to secure their footing a bit and put one foot into next summer's World Cup.

First up is a trip to Jamaica and the always difficult environment of Independence Park in Kingston. The last time these two teams met in Kingston -- in the previous round of qualifying -- the Reggae Boyz pulled off a 2-1 upset of the US with goals from Rodolph Austin and Luton Shelton.

The USA are coming off a mixed bag of results from their last two friendlies with a bad loss against Belgium and a solid win over Germany. Jamaica sit last in the CONCACAF hexagonal and are coming off a frustrating 1-0 home qualifying loss against Mexico.

Jamaica injuries and suspensions

Out: None.

United States injuries and suspensions

Out: None In Doubt: Herculez Gomez (knee), Fabian Johnson (hamstring).

Gomez is a major doubt for the US as he continues to recover from a knee problem. Fabian Johnson was subbed out of the US win over Germany as a precaution and his injured hamstring is expected to be alright for the game.

Match Date/Time: 8:30 p.m. local, 9:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Independence Park, Kingston, Jamaica

TV: beIN Sport (U.S.)
