The United States men’s soccer team is looking to bounce back from a disappointing draw against Panama when it plays Martinique in its second Group B game of the 2017 Gold Cup.
Panama defeated Nicaragua 2-1 earlier Wednesday, which means a USA loss would drop the Americans into third place. A win, however, would vault the U.S. to the top of the group standings.

Final, USA wins 3-2
79th minute, 3-2 USA: Jordan Morris just scored his second goal, the go-ahead tally for the Americans.
76th minute, 2-2: Uh oh, the U.S. has blown a 2-0 lead after Kevin Parsemain scored his second goal of the game for Martinique.
66th minute, 2-1 USA: Martinique have gotten one back! Brad Guzan should’ve done better there, but the U.S. goalkeeper couldn’t move across fast enough to keep the ball out.
64th minute, 2-0 USA: The Americans have doubled their lead!
62nd minute, 1-0 USA: U.S. manager Bruce Arena is making his first sub.
53rd minute, 1-0 USA: The U.S. finally has scored. Omar Gonzalez converts from a few yards out after the Martinique goalkeeper punched the ball right at the American defender.
48th minute, 0-0: Paul Arriola hits the crossbar from six yards out! A golden chance wasted by Team USA.
46th minute, 0-0: The second half is underway.
43rd minute, 0-0: Martinique just forced U.S. goalkeeper Brad Guzan to make a good save. The United States is playing with almost no urgency, precision or energy right now. A bad first half for the Americans so far.
35th minute, 0-0: Gyasi Zardes sends in another great cross and the ball is deflected out for a fifth U.S. corner. The service from the flanks has been good for the Americans. They just haven’t been able to find the finishing touch.
31st minute, 0-0: The best chance of the night so far goes to Martinique, but we’re still scoreless.
13th minute, 0-0: Jordan Morris nearly put the U.S. in front, but his header off a free kick sailed just wide of the post.
8th minute, 0-0: The U.S. has enjoyed the majority of possession, but there haven’t been any A+ scoring chances for the Americans.
Cristian Roldan is making his first national team appearance for the U.S., by the way.
3rd minute, 0-0: Gyasi Zardes sends in a dangerous cross from the left flank but Jordan Morris can’t settle it and the ball sails out for a goal kick. A good early attack from the U.S.
1st minute, 0-0: We’re underway at Raymond James Stadium.
8:53 p.m.: Martinique is in good form entering this game.
8:30 p.m. ET: Here are the starting lineups for both teams.
