Panama 1-1 USA

Panama 1-1 USA

The top three teams in the group qualify automatically for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

United States Men's National Team (USMNT) just need to win this match to stay in the campaign standings and the race.

On boosting confidence, Arena said: "There's no secret formulas to this stuff: work together, take ownership of what you're doing, treat them like responsible professional athletes and get on with your business".

Jurgen Klinsmann was sacked in November and replaced by Bruce Arena, the USA coach from 1998-2006, and the us team accomplished its immediate goal by getting back into contention with Friday's 6-0 rout of visiting Honduras - Dempsey had three goals - and then a point in Panama.

Panama sits in third place in the Hex with four points, but is coming off of a disappointing 1-0 loss at Trinidad and Tobago. I think he did well. "We showed a lot more camaraderie".

Mexico leads with 10 points, followed by Costa Rica with seven, Panama with five, the USA and Honduras with four each, and Trinidad and Tobago with three. The fourth-place team goes to a two-legged playoff with the fifth-place team from the Asian Football Confederation for a place at next year's World Cup. That should change under Arena, and they have enough firepower to get a huge three points on the road. No, we have to come here and take points.

He felt that had the US been able to get to half-time 1-0 up, it might have been able to grab all three points. Panama was determined to make it physical, be hard, and to their credit, they threw us off our game a bit.

The inhabitants constantly complained about the quality of the food, episodes of violence, and sexual assault in the youth home. He called on authorities "to evaluate whether it is appropriate to have these different groups concentrated in one place".


Panama is now doing well in the hexagonal phase of the competition in third place with four points. "It was good to get him two games at left back", said Arena. "We gained ground on everybody other than Mexico, and Mexico right now is an outlier".

Injuries caused three projected starters to drop out before training camp opened: midfielder Fabian Johnson, right back DeAndre Yedlin and forward Bobby Wood. Defender John Brooks left with a sinus infection and defender Geoff Cameron was substituted early in the second half.

On turning to veterans, such as Dempsey and Bradley, for leadership, Arena said: "I really believe in that because it's their team; it's not my team". Howard returned in goal after an injury layoff and made a giant save in the second half to preserve the Panama tie. Dempsey got another goal, and Pulisic got another assist in this one. Gabriel Gomez tied the score four minutes later following a throw-in. He was repeatedly pushed and tugged and knocked down.

Pulisic, 18, has solidified his spot with the national team, just in case there was any doubt. Yet, CONCACAF is far different from the manicured fields of Europe. Probably in club play your players are a little more protected than they are in World Cup qualifying. They just come steaming through you. And then the next one comes steaming through.

At least in the minds of the Americans their opponents were twofold, the pumped-up home side hungry for a big scalp, and the Mexican refereeing crew marshaled by Cesar Ramos.

Pulisic took all the fouling in stride. "The referee is on the field to protect both sets of players".

"It was a good lesson for Christian tonight", said Arena.

After serving a one-match suspension due to yellow-card accumulation, Jermaine Jones is eligible for selection Tuesday vs. Panama.

But Arena emphasized that in addition to playing in Dortmund's youth system, Pulisic also spent time at the U.S. U17 residency program in Bradenton, Florida.
