US Men’s Soccer Team playing final World Cup qualifier in Orlando

The United States Men’s Soccer Team will have one last opportunity to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup at an upcoming qualifier game in Orlando.

The match will take place on Sunday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. at Exploria Stadium, which is located at 655 W Church Street.

Currently, the United States is second in its round-robin group, trailing only Canada. The FIFA standings show that Canada leads the group with 25 points, followed by the United States and Mexico at 21 points, and Panama at 17 points. Costa Rica sits at fifth with 16 points.

Canada, El Salvador and Panama join the teams ranked 1-5 in FIFA’s World Ranking (Costa Rica, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, United States). The eight teams play each other home and away, a total of 14 matches. The top three qualify directly, with the fourth-placed team going to an intercontinental playoff against a nation from Oceania in June 2022.

The US team will next face Mexico on Wednesday, March 23.
