9:15 PM16 days ago

Without Pulisic

After it was confirmed that Christian Pulisic was already Covid-19 negative, the U.S. national team decided that Pulisic would not make the trip to El Salvador because they expect him to get back to full fitness first.

He will likely be present for the match against Canada. Christian Pulisic joins teammate Timothy Weah, who was confirmed as injured earlier in the week.


9:10 PM16 days ago

The fans are present!

FESFUT confirmed that the 29 thousand tickets available to enter the Cuscatlán stadium were sold out for this match. For the home games of the Salvadoran national team, only fans who have completed the two doses of vaccination against Covid-19 and present the respective card will be allowed to enter.

The arrival

With the proper hygiene measures, the players of the U.S. and El Salvador National Teams are already at the Cuscatlán Stadium, which will host the first match of the CONCACAF octagonal. It is worth mentioning that there will be fans at the stadium for this match.


9:00 PM16 days ago


The CONCACAF qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will not have one of the most important refereeing tools: VAR. This decision was made because some stadiums in Central America and the Caribbean do not have adequate facilities for the installation of the necessary equipment to use video refereeing, and therefore, the confederation determined that none of the stadiums that will host the qualifiers will install it.


8:55 PM16 days ago


The last World Cup elimination matches between these two teams tipped the scales in favor of the United States. 

The Stars and Stripes won 2-0 in San Salvador on the road to Germany 2006. In the octagonal round on the road to South Africa 2010, the U.S. team drew 2-2 against the Salvadorans.

Today, twelve years later, the two teams will meet again. The current Gold Cup champions are undefeated against El Salvador in the World Cup qualifiers; they have two wins and two draws.

La Selecta will start the qualifying process against one of the favorite teams in the region and they will have to take advantage of their locality to get a positive result since they have not played in a World Cup for almost four decades. The national team of El Salvador, coached by Hugo Pérez, has just played a friendly against Costa Rica, where the result was a scoreless draw. In the Gold Cup, the Salvadorans lost 3-2 in the quarterfinals against the host of the next World Cup: Qatar.

United States: Back to the World Cup

In the previous World Cup process, the Stars and Stripes team surprisingly failed to qualify for Russia 2018, and they do not want to repeat the occasion. The team coached by Gregg Berhalter is one of the favorites to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar and will be coming into this match as the reigning champions of the Gold Cup and the CONCACAF Nations League.
