The United States men's national team will face off against Jamaica on Tuesday night in Columbus, Ohio in a 2014 World Cup qualifying match that the Stars and Stripes can ill-afford to lose.
Jamaica's 2-1 win over the U.S. at home on Friday put them three points ahead of the Americans in their CONCACAF qualifying group.
Although the Americans won't be eliminated from World Cup contention with a loss on Tuesday, their hopes of advancing to the final round of qualifying will take a major hit.
With so much on the line, there's no excuse to miss a minute of the action. Here is everything you need to know to view Tuesday's qualifier online or on the go.
When: Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 8 p.m. ET

What to Watch For on Tuesday
American players were complaining about the conditions of the pitch in Jamaica after losing on the road Friday.
“I think there was better grass in the stands than there was on the pitch," said forward Herculez Gomez (via The Columbus Dispatch's Shawn Mitchell).
The field at Crew Stadium is expected to be in great condition on Tuesday, which will provide the United States with no excuses to lose track of the ball against Jamaica. Weather conditions are expected to be 71 degrees and clear at kickoff.
The American forward has scored a goal in all three of the United States' World Cup qualifiers in 2012, and has netted four goals in six matches for the U.S. this year.
With Landon Donovan and Michael Bradley both set to miss Tuesday's match with injuries (via Shawn Mitchell's Columbus Dispatch report), Dempsey will be the man called upon by Klinsmann to put the Americans in front.
The 29-year-old EPL star opened up the scoring in Kingston on Friday when he knocked in a goal. The U.S. will need another fast start from Dempsey on Tuesday if they are to get back into the thick of things in their qualifying group.
