The USMNT is all but assured advancement to the final round of CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying, regardless of their result against group leaders Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday. For the USMNT to miss out, they would have to lose and Guatemala would have to win and overcome a goal difference of 12 … unlikely is one way of putting it.
The USMNT are coming off a 6-0 shellacking of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with substitutes Christian Pulisic (two goals, one assist) and Sacha Kljestan (one goal, two assists) accounting for all three goals in the second half. Michael Bradley will be coming off suspension to regain the captain’s armband. Jurgen Klinsmann stated before that Tim Howard would be starting this game. The biggest question for USA fans will be if Klinsmann gives Borussia Dortmund starlet Pulisic a full 90-minute run-out. Many feel it is time, especially after his performance on Friday.
Trinidad & Tobago sit atop Group 3 with 11 points, one ahead of the USA, their passage to the Hexagonal guaranteed. They beat Guatemala 2-1 on Friday thanks to goals by Khaleem Hyland and Kenwyne Jones. Trinidad drew with the USMNT at home 0-0 in the countries’ first group match.
The CONCACAF World Cup Qualifier between USA and Trinidad and Tobago will be broadcast live on FS1 and UniMas. Live streaming is available on Fox Sports Go, which you can access with your cable and satellite subscriptions, either online or through the Fox Sports app.

The USMNT will come out full of confidence with the return of Bradley and after their lopsided win on Friday, while Trinidad and Tobago will look to spoil the party and win the group.
