The 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup has reached the semi-final stage, with Panama and USA vying for a place in Sunday’s final.
Defending champions USA were ruthless in the groups as they topped their mini-table unbeaten, but they were made to sweat for their quarter-final victory over bordering nation Canada earlier this week. Brandon Vazquez thought he won the game for USA in the dying embers of normal time, but Canada struck back in the 93rd minute through Steven Vitoria. Two more goals ensued in extra-time, before USA won on penalties, taking them to yet another semi-final.
Panama mimicked the United States’ form in the initial phase, topping Group C unbeaten. Thomas Christiansen’s Los Canaleros then took that form into the knockouts and battered guest nation Qatar comprehensively 4-0, with prolific winger Ismael Diaz nabbing a nine-minute hat-trick. Panama have only once before reached the final of this competition, back in 2005, but they came up short to the United States that day. They will now have redemption on their mind.

Panama team news
Christiansen faces a bit of a dilemma as both of his right-backs are suffering hamstring injuries in Cesar Blackman and Michael Murillo. As a compromise, versatile No. 10 Yoel Barcenas was forced to play a fluid right wing-back role against Qatar, and he is likely to do so against USA. It’s not ideal for such a crucial clash, but it worked a treat against Qatar.
USA team news
B. J. Callaghan’s only major injury concern is that to centre-back Miles Robinson. That will likely mean Matt Miazga and Jalen Neal partner each other in the heart of USA’s defence.
