CHICAGO – With two consecutive wins in World Cup qualifying, the United States will try to keep its momentum going when it visits Panama Sunday night.

The Americans, who are coming off a 2-0 home victory over Jamaica Thursday night, also is in a position to post two successive triumphs in Central America. They earned a 4-1 win at Honduras in the September window of the Concacaf Octagonal.

Entering Sunday’s match undefeated (2-0-2) and in first place in the Octagonal standings, USA-Panama is the U.S. men’s national team’s second qualifying match in seven days this month and fifth match overal.

Kickoff from Estadio Rommel Fernandez is set for 6 p.m. ET on Paramount+ and Unvierso. Fans can follow the USMNT during World Cup qualifying on Twitter (@USMNT), Instagram (@USMNT), Facebook and the official U.S. Soccer App.

Three players on the USMNT’s October roster did not travel with the team to Panama: goalkeeper Zack Steffen, defender Antonee Robinson and midfielder Weston McKennie. Robinson and Steffen did not travel due to the quarantine requirements for those returning to the United Kingdom, while McKennie experienced soreness in his right quadriceps and will focus on preparation for Wednesday’s USA-Costa Rica match.

On Wednesday, the U.S. dominated possession in the first half against Jamaica’s defensive low block while searching for a goal, and came out firing after the break. Pepi’s two goals came off otwo nice full-field attacking runs, the first sprung from goalkeeper Matt Turner and the back line before Sergino Dest teed Pepi up for the opener and when Brenden Aaronson provided the assist on the second.
