The US and Jamaica both look to book their place in the Final of the Nations League and get their hands on an international trophy. Both teams will also be looking for wins to get some good momentum going into the Copa America this summer.

The United States entered the Nations League at the Quarter-final stage due to being ranked second by CONCACAF, picking up 1,836 points, 42 points from top spot Mexico. That Quarter-final saw The US take on Trinidad and Tobago, who they beat over two legs.

The Stars and Stripes are the most successful team in Nations League history. The US won in both 2021 and 2023, beating Mexico and Canada. The Copa America, on the other hand, in their four appearances The US have yet to make a Final but have finished fourth twice in 1995 and 2016.

Jamaica, on the other hand, had to go through the group stage. Drawn into League A Group B, Jamaica took on Honduras, Suriname, Cuba, Haiti and Grenada. In four games, Jamaica picked up three wins and one draw, finishing top of the group, three points clear of Honduras. Jamaica then beat fourth ranked Canada across two legs of the Quarter-final.

Having made the Semi-finals of the Nations League, Jamaica have automatically qualified for the Copa America. The Reggae Boyz have competed at the Copa America twice before in 2015 and 2016, but crashed out in the group stage both times, yet to win a single game in the competition.

The US and Jamaica have met 32 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in the 1988 World Cup. The Stars and Stripes have a much better record in the fixture with 19 wins in comparison to Jamaica’s three wins. A draw is more common than a Jamaica win in this fixture, happening on ten occasions.

The last five games in this fixture have been three wins for the US and two draws. In fact, Jamaica haven’t beaten the US since 2019, where they won 1 - 0 in an international friendly. This isn’t a fixture of goals, with most games having two goals or less.
