Group B continues in the Gold Cup on Thursday, with Martinique playing the U.S. national team in Kansas City.
Martinique suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat at the hands of Canada in its opening Gold Cup game, knowing another defeat could knock the team out of the competition.
The USMNT fared better, picking up a 1-0 win over Haiti thanks to an early goal from Sam Vines. A win against Martinique would seal progress to the knockout stage.

Team news & rosters
|Goalkeepers||Chauvet, des Etages, Meslien|
|Defenders||Cretinoir, Dondon, Yann Thimon, Babin, Yordan Thimon, Camille, Michalet|

Martinique has never beaten the USMNT before, but needs a result on Thursday to stay in the Gold Cup.
Goalkeeper Gilles Meslien will need to be in better form against the United States than against Canada, where he conceded four times.
Despite losing 4-1, Martinique is not expected to make many changes to its starting XI.
Predicted Martinique starting XI : Meslien; Dondon, Cretinoir, Barthelery, Camille; Grelet, Abaul, Herelle; Fortune, Riviere, Pastel.
|Goalkeepers||Turner, Johnson, Guzan|
|Defenders||Cannon, Vines, Pines, Zimmerman, Robinson, Sands, Moore, Bello|
|Midfielders||Busio, Roldan, Yueill, Lletget, Williamson, Acosta|
|Forwards||Arriola, Gioacchini, Zardes, Dike, Hoppe, Lewis|
Paul Arriola is a major doubt for the USMNT after being forced off injured just 14 minutes into the 1-0 win over Haiti.
Nicholas Gioacchini replaced Arriola from the bench and could be in line to play from the start against Martinique, although Daryl Dike has also been suggested as a potential replacement.
With few European-based players on the roster, Sebastian Lletget captained the side and should wear the armband again for the remainder of the tournament.
Reggie Cannon is unlikely to play after missing the first game with a thigh problem.
Predicted USMNT starting XI: Turner; Pines, Zimmerman, Robinson, Vines; Acosta, Roldan, Lletget; Busio, Zardes, Gioacchini.
