Here is your US-Jamaica pre-game primer
   September 6, 2012 (10:02 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

Here is quick rundown on things you might want to look at before tomorrow’s game.

» The game is at 8 PM Eastern on beIN SPORT.  US Soccer has some viewing information about beIN right here.

» US Soccer gives us their game notes with their usual stats and facts.  I also looked at the all-time series the other day and Howie took a look at the last meeting.

» US Soccer did a Q&A with Clint Dempsey this week.  They also have a story on the team ending some streaks this year.  Could the US drought on Jamaican soil during qualifiers end tomorrow night?

» Over at ESPN, Jeff Carlisle has a good story about Terrence Boyd’s decision to play for the US.  Roger Bennett also has a story up on Geoff Cameron and I am linking it solely based on his use of “quarterback style” (if you listen to the Men in Blazers podcast, which you should be doing, you will get the reference).

» Timothy Chandler says he is still open to playing with the US in the future.

» According to Steven Goff,  “ice picks” and “machetes” are not permitted inside stadium.  Oh CONCACAF.  Goff also has some quotes from Jurgen Klinsmann and Clint Dempsey about Dempsey’s fitness.

» You can read The Shin Guardian’s match preview right here.  Will Parchman gives us five things to watch.

As for my random/baseless prediction, I am going with a 1-1 draw.  I might set up a OT shirt/guess the score contest for Tuesday’s game.

    Chandler will only decide to play for the US again once they qualify for the world cup(I hope) and Germany doesn’t call him up…

  2. LaMichael says:

    chandler isnt good enough to get called up for germany. i hope he realizes that! But he could be a stud for the US

  3. William says:

    Yes, Phillipp Lahm isn’t going anywhere Chandler…neither is Boateng

  4. Daniil says:

    Chandler can do whatever he wants. Id rather have a player who is commited to the side.
