The U.S. faces Jamaica at RFK Stadium today in the quarter-finals of the Gold Cup.
Head coach Bob Bradley may still be fighting for his job as the U.S. has come off two poor performances against Panama and Guadeloupe.
It will be a sell-out crowd of 46,000 at RFK, as Jamaica tries to beat the U.S. for the first time. The Americans have won 10 of 19 matches against Jamaica, but the way both teams are playing today's match might not go so well for the home country.
Jamaica has won all three of its games in the tournament without conceding a goal, outscoring their opponents 7-0. Meanwhile, the U.S. looks out of sorts. Aside from the 2-0 victory over Canada, the Americans appear to be playing without much chemistry and suffered a miserable loss to Panama.
Bradley has salvaged his position and reputation before. In 2009, the U.S. started the Confederations Cup poorly, but then went on a great run to reach the Final before losing to Brazil in a second-half collapse.
The U.S. is led by Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, Michael Bradley, and Tim Howard. The Jamaicans are led by Ryan Johnson, Luton Shelton, Demar Phillips, and Donovan Ricketts.
The two teams drew 1-1 at RFK in 1998 during a World Cup Qualifying match. Both teams went to the World Cup that year, but with poor results.
The winners of today's knockout match will meet in the semi-final on Wednesday at the Reliant Stadium in Houston.
The Gold Cup Final is on Saturday at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
