Odds according to Oddschecker.


While Jamaica topped their group, they picked up fewer points than their quarter-final opponents.

A 3-2 win over Honduras preceded two draws for the Reggae Boyz. A goalless stalemate against El Salvador came before a 1-1 tie with Curacao, in which they missed several promising chances:

Neither of their latter showings inspired a great deal of confidence.

Jamaica did pick up a 1-0 win over the U.S. in a warm-up friendly immediately prior to the tournament, but the Americans fielded what was largely a reserve side.

As for Panama, they secured a 2-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago before beating Guyana 4-2.

Though they lost 1-0 to the U.S. in their final group match, football writer Charles Boehm praised their development in recent years:

Probably gets obscured by their playing style but Panama's climb out of the CONCACAF cellar is pretty impressive. A traditionally baseball-first country of ~4 million people with somewhere between 20-40% of the population living in poverty, and they're consistently a tough out.

Los Canaleros are ranked three places above Canada in FIFA's world rankings in 75th, but they're 21 below Jamaica.

Given how the two sides have played at this year's tournament, expect a hard-fought contest on Sunday.

Jamaica have reached the finals of the past two Gold Cups, but if they are to progress this year, they need to be more clinical with their chances.
