USMNT continues Gold Cup play in St. Louis

By: Grant Salsman

The United States Men’s National Team will return to St. Louis for the first time since 2019.

They have a 6-1-3 record in St. Louis and a 3-1-1 in official competition. This however will be their first time at CITYPARK, the new home of St. Louis City SC.

The USMNT will be hosting Saint Kitts and Nevis in their second game of Gold Cup group play on Wednesday with kick-off scheduled for 9 P.M. CT. The Gold Cup is a 16-team tournament between all of CONCACAF’s best teams. The U.S. drew Jamaica 1-1 on Saturday with Brandon Vazquez scoring the lone U.S. goal in the 88th minute. Saint Kitts and Nevis are the lone debutants at the Gold Cup, and fell 3-0 to Trinidad And Tabago in their first game. This will be the first meeting ever between the Sugar Boyz of Saint Kitts and the USMNT.

U.S. players are excited to see CITYPARK for the first time too, as midfielder Gianluca Busio and goalkeeper Sean Johnson said they have heard about the atmosphere at CITYPARK during MLS competition and are looking forward to seeing it live tomorrow. The USMNT will hope a victory on Wednesday can propel them to their 8th Gold Cup Championship.
