The CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers continue Sunday when the USA hosts Panama in a crucial showdown between two sides still vying to secure their place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. As it stands, the USMNT sits second in the group, having earned 22 points through its first 12 games. Panama is not far behind in fifth with 18 points in as many matches.

The United States enter the game having tied 0-0 against Mexico in their last qualifying match. Earning three points against Panama on Sunday would guarantee the USA finishes no worse than fourth in the group, which would put them into a playoff against an Asian club to earn their ticket to Qatar. The top three teams in the group automatically qualify for the 2022 World Cup, so a win would put the USA in a great position to secure a berth.

Panama will also be vying for the three points in order to keep their own World Cup dreams alive. After a 1-1 draw with Honduras in their last match, Panama is winless in its last two games, having also lost against Mexico. The team will need to rebound and bring their A-game in order to take down the USA, though they were victorious in their last meeting back in 2021.

With all that in mind, here's all the info for Sunday's CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying match between USA and Panama.

USMNT vs Panama predictions

Last time these two squads met, Panama took home a 1-0 victory. The stakes are raised now, however, and the United States knows it's on the brink of qualification. A win on Sunday will be critical for the USMNT, and we're expecting them to step up and deliver. Panama enters the game having won just one of its last three games, a 3-2 win over Jamaica. The USA is in better form, winning three of its last five, losing just one game during that span.

The United States certainly has the talent to take down Panama and their star players will need to play up to their potential to earn a win. Playing in Orlando will be a boost for the Americans, and we think they should be able to fend off Panama's attack in what should be a low-scoring game. We're expecting the USA to come out on top in a 1-0 match.
