Jamaica and the US have not lost a single game in Gold Cup 2015, but one team will have to finish in the losing side during their mega semi-final clash at Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
Both the teams have been impressive in the tournament so far as the US finished atop of Group A after defeating Panama and Haiti, but had to be satisfied with a 1-1 draw against Panama. Jamaica also have a similar record with two wins and one draw in their group stages.
This paved way for both the teams to reach the last eight of Gold Cup 2015, where Jamaica defeated Haiti in a close encounter with the score reading 1-0, while the US thrashed Cuba 6-0, which is going to make the home team a confident unit after such a dominating display.
This victory will give them the much-needed confidence after their less than impressive performance during the group stages, where they only managed four goals and conceded two. This is not a record, which was expected from the favourites of the competition.
US coach Jurgen Klinsmann stated that they were working on their mistakes in the first couple of matches.
"In the first couple of games, [there were] here and there some mistakes that we're working on, and it's also down to the opponent that you play, what they're going to do and how they get at you," ESPN quoted Klinsmann as saying.
"It's a very good kind of learning process for everybody involved, whoever plays on the back line."
Jamaica may not possess big names of world football, but they have been solid at the back and came up with good game against Costa Rica, the highest ranked FIFA team in the competition, where they drew 2-2.
The US cannot take the Reggae Boyz lightly. But Jamaica manager Winfried Schäfer considers the match as a David-Goliath affair.
"It feels like David against Goliath, that's fine," Schäfer said. "We will try everything to hit the giant where it hurts the most."
US skipper Michael Bradley is aware of the threat the Jamaicans bring to the table as these players have been together for some months now. Spending such time will help the players develop a great sense of chemistry among the players.
"I think the organisation and discipline that they have, now that they've been together over the last two months, has helped them quite a bit," US captain Michael Bradley said.
"They always have skill and ability and talent and athleticism, but you can see in the moment that they're in a good way. They understand each other, they understand what they need to be about in order to give themselves a chance to be successful."
The US will depend on key striker Clint Dempsey, who is the highest goal-scorer in the tournament with six goals, including a hat-trick against Cuba.
