USA Vs. Nicaragua 2017 Gold Cup Live: Score Updates, Highlights And More

PREVIEW: US Men's National Soccer Team Set To Square Off With Nicaragua Tonight

Nicaragua is the bottom feeder in Group B, losing 2-0 to Martinique and 2-1 to Panama.

The U.S. men's national soccer team completes CONCACAF Gold Cup group play today against Nicaragua in Cleveland. So instead of having to face a hard opponent in Costa Rica in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, the US will now play one of the third-place teams that advance. The U.S. will face El Salvador, Honduras or Jamaica.

The U.S. finally broke through, scoring in the 37th minute. Bedoya's cross skittered through the penalty area to a wide-open Corona who needed a couple of cutbacks before hitting a right-footed shot that deflected off a Nicaragua defender and inside the far post. The goal scored in Wednesday's game against Panama was the first in Gold Cup history for the company, 26 years after the tournament was founded.


U.S. did double its lead in the 56th minute. The US got another chance at a penalty after that, with Corona stepping up to take the second attempt, but Lorente blocked that as well. The USMNT would tack on a third goal in the 88th minute by way of a Matt Miazga header, three minutes after Nicaragua dropped to ten men due to defender Luis Copete receiving his second yellow card of the match.

Nicaragua made four changes as Cyril Errington, Bismarck Veliz, Bryan Garcia and Luis Peralta replaced Manuel Rosas, Carlos Chavarria, Eulises Pavon and Erick Tellez from the team beaten 2-1 by Panama. The USMNT got another opportunity with Graham Zusi taking a free kick from just outside of the box.

That would be the only goal in the first half, leaving plenty of unrest for a United States team that has struggled to close things out so far in the Gold Cup.
