El Salvador vs. USA
San Salvador, El Salvador
- The USMNT plays its first match since Miles Robinson scored the game winner in the thrilling 1-0 win over Mexico for the Gold Up title. The USMNT has dominated the series, winning its last five matches against El Salvador with a +14 goal differential.
Atlanta United’s Miles Robinson is expected to play a significant role for the USMNT through this three-game international break after his breakout on the international stage in this summer’s Gold Cup-winning campaign. USMNT manager Gregg Berhalter raved about his performance and hinted that he’ll continue to be a key player for the team in this set of matches.
