After a 1-0 win over Haiti to open the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup Sunday night, the U.S men’s national team will face Martinique in its second group stage match in Kansas City, Kansas Thursday night.

Depending on the result of the first game of the doubleheader between Canada and Haiti, a victory could push the USMNT into the tournament’s knockout phase as one of the top two teams in Group B.

Coverage from Children’s Mercy Park begins at 9:30 p.m. ET on FS1, UniMás and TUDN, with kickoff to follow at 10 p.m. ET. Fans can follow the USMNT during the tournament on Twitter (@USMNT), Instagram (@USMNT), Facebook and the official U.S. Soccer App.

The USMNT took the initiative from the opening kick against Haiti Sunday, creating a number of dangerous chances in the early going before a breakthrough in the eighth minute. Forward Gyasi Zardes teed up defender Sam Vines for a well-placed header and the left back’s first career international goal. While the U.S. had several opportunities for a goal, including a few attempts off the woodwork by Walker Zimmerman, Vines’ goal would prove to be the difference in the 1-0 win against Les Grenadiers.

The assist on Vines’ goal marked the 10th of Zardes’ career, making him the second-fastest USMNT player to record double-digit goals and assists. The 12th USMNT player to reach the milestone, Zardes got there in 57 caps, coming in behind only U.S. legend Landon Donovan. The 29-year-old forward joins the likes of Cobi Jones, Clint Dempsey, USMNT General Manager Brian McBride and U.S. Soccer Sporting Director Earnie Stewart in the 10 & 10 Club.

Three players made their USMNT debut in the shutout against Haiti: midfielders Gianluca Busio and Eryk Williamson, as well as defender James Sands. A midfielder for Sporting Kansas City, Busio picked up his first cap to the tune of a roaring ovation from his home fans at Children’s Mercy Park. All three are products of the U.S. Youth National Team set-up and represented the USA at FIFA Youth World Cups before entering as second-half substitutes in the Gold Cup opener.

Head coach Gregg Berhalter has given 45 players their USMNT debut through his first 30 games in charge, the most of any manager at this point in their tenure. Forward Matthew Hoppe and defender Donovan Pines could also join that list as the two remaining uncapped players on the Gold Cup roster.

Back to the USMNT for the first time since November 2018, Moore’s on-field return came a bit sooner than anticipated when defender Reggie Cannon picked up a knock before Sunday night’s match. Moore found out he’d be replacing Cannon in the starting lineup just a few hours before kickoff, but seized the opportunity with an impressive performance, winning U.S. Soccer Insiders Man of the Match for his efforts.

Goalkeeper Matt Turner (eligible to represent Lithuania), Moore (eligible to represent Trinidad and Tobago), forward Nicholas Gioacchini (Italy and Jamaica), Busio (Italy) and Daryl Dike (Nigeria) became officially cap-tied to the USMNT with their appearances against Haiti.
