USA vs Panama – Team news
Jalen Neal picked up an injury in the thrilling quarterfinal victory over Canada and will thus miss this tie, with Aaron Long, who replaced him in that penalty shootout victory, or Matt Miazga likely to deputize. James Sands made his 10th consecutive Gold Cup outing in that quarterfinal triumph and should make it 11 straight appearances in the tournament come the semifinal while Julian Gressel should retain his spot in the lineup.
All eyes will be on Matt Turner again and whether the Arsenal keeper can continue his brilliant form in goal. The captain saved two spot kicks during the penalty shootout vs. Canada and was thus the nation's hero on that day. Meanwhile, Jesus Ferreira, who failed to score against Les Rouges and was fortunate not to miss his penalty attempt, will lead the line as the reigning champions chase a spot in the final.
Panama, on the other hand, thrashed Qatar 4-0 in the quarterfinals and made several changes for that tie, with Cecilio Waterman, Freddy Gondola, Roderick Miller, Cesar Blackman, Jovani Welch, and Cristian Martinez all being dropped to the bench. Ismael Diaz scored a hat-trick in that game and should thus retain his starting position.
Aníbal Godoy scored the winning goal the last time Los Canaleros beat the Stars and Stripes, which was roughly two years ago, and will be hoping for something similar. Orlando Mosquera picked up his first clean sheet of the tournament in the 4-0 win over Qatar but will be put to the test on Wednesday when he comes face to face with Ferreira, the tournament's top scorer.
USA vs Panama: Head-to-head
While the USA have faced Panama only 25 times before, making them their ninth most frequent opponent overall, the Stars and Stripes have faced no other nation more frequently in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
The defending champions hold the superior head-to-head record, winning 17 times and losing only twice in this matchup (D6).
However, while Los Canaleros lost their most recent encounter with the USA, the Central American side beat the North American giants in the run-in before that, triumphing 1-0 in a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Their most recent showdown ended in a 5-1 win for the Stars and Stripes and while hat-trick hero Christian Pulisic is not on the roster, Jesús Ferreira got on the scoresheet on that day and will be looking to repeat that feat.
Panama's record against Wednesday's opponent in the Gold Cup is W1, D4, L6.
Of the four remaining teams in the 2023 Gold Cup (USA, Panama, Mexico, and Jamaica), Thomas Christiansen's side have the worst defense, having conceded four goals in the group stage.
