Teams to Watch

United States

It's hard to find a team that has looked better internationally over the last few months than the United States, and it's coming at the perfect time.

After the Jurgen Klinsmann era got off to a start full of growing pains, it's finally starting to come to fruition behind a team-based attack that features star players.

Who's in the driver's seat to win Gold Cup 2013?

It has resulted in two lopsided wins so far in the Gold Cup over Belize and Cuba, and the Americans look to continue that against the pesky Costa Rica squad. 

Both teams have already advanced to the quarterfinals, but first place could be on the line, and that will only help the winner's chances of making a deep run into the semifinals, and perhaps beyond.

Winning on Tuesday would set an all-time record for the U.S. with eight straight victories. These players who mainly make up America's second team will be hungry to make history in a match that doesn't have as much meaning as a normal Gold Cup match, due to both teams already advancing. 

 

Costa Rica

Just like the U.S., Costa Rica is perfect after two matches. But a tie with America on Tuesday would give USA the group, due to goal differential.

The Costa Ricans will be hungry to avenge a controversial loss in World Cup qualifying earlier this year, which took place in a near blizzard. 

In the Gold Cup, they started out on fire in a 3-0 win over Cuba before squeaking out a tight, 1-0 win over Belize in their second match. 

However, this may not even be the last time these two play in the Gold Cup. Both look hungry to make the finals, and with Mexico still having its fair share of struggles, this could be the year they face off in the championship.

 

Haiti

Coming off an exciting 2-2 draw against Italy in a June friendly that likely felt like a win for the Haitians, they've brought their best game to the Gold Cup.

With a 2-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago and a 2-0 loss to Honduras, Haiti is in second place with three points.

However, both El Salvador and Trinidad and Tobago have one point and would jump over Haiti with a win, should the Haitians lose to El Salvador.

If El Salvador tops Haiti, the Haitians will move back to third place and would be an unlikely Trinidad and Tobago upset over Honduras away from being eliminated. Though, even if they just lose to El Salvador, that may be enough to eliminate them due to the third-place rule.

The Haitians can get rid of all of that doubt and all of those questions if they just pick up a draw or a win against El Salvador.
