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.


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.)
