The USA have a chance to clinch their spot in the Copa America knockout stage when they face Panama in their second match at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

For over 80 minutes, Panama held their ground in their first match before crumbling in the closing stages. Thomas Christiansen's squad conceded two goals in the final five minutes of regular time plus stoppage time, marking their second consecutive defeat this year.

Since taking over in 2020, the Danish manager has never experienced three consecutive losses in international matches, a record that hangs in the balance ahead of Thursday's game.

A loss combined with a Uruguay victory over Bolivia would mathematically eliminate Panama from the competition for the second time in their two Copa America appearances.


In front of over 47,000 fans, the host nation delighted their supporters early with a goal in the third minute and doubled their lead just before halftime.

During the first half, the Americans dominated play, registering 18 touches in the attacking box while Bolivia failed to manage any in that period.

Two moments of brilliance proved decisive for Gregg Berhalter's squad, securing his 44th victory as head coach and moving him into third place all-time, ahead of Bob Bradley. Only Jurgen Klinsmann (55) and Bruce Arena (81) have more wins.

This was the Americans' third consecutive win in the group stage of the tournament, and they have yet to concede a goal in this phase.
