CONCACAF Nations League: Grenada vs USA: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
Grenada will host The USMNT at Kirani James Athletic Stadium for a CONCACAF Nations League match on Saturday.
The USA, who are the defending champions of the Nations League, faces a tough challenge to make it to the finals for the second time in a row. They currently sit second in Group D, one point behind El Salvador, the group leaders. However, their fate is in their own hands, as they face El Salvador in their last group game. So far, the USA has won one game and drawn one, with their victory coming in a 5-0 win over Grenada.
Though Grenada is out of the race to the finals in the Nations League, they still have a chance to qualify for the Gold Cup. Currently, they are at the bottom of the table, having played one game more than the United States. Grenada’s form has not been impressive, with no wins in their last three matches, and they have managed to secure only one point from a 2-2 draw against El Salvador.
