Reigning champions USA will open their title defense at the 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup against Jamaica on Saturday at Soldier Field.
The USA is co-hosting this year’s biennial international tournament with Canada. They start their campaign in rich form, having recently been crowned CONCACAF Nations League winners last week.
Jamaica has qualified in the last four editions of the competition, finishing as runners-up twice in that period. The hosts were knocked out in the quarter-finals in the 2021 edition and will be looking to avenge that defeat.
The visitors played a handful of friendlies before kicking off the campaign earlier this month, suffering 2-1 defeats against Qatar and Jordan.
