The USMNT know that anything other than victory would be a shock when Trinidad and Tobago visit Texas for the CONCACAF Nations League.
Entering on a run of three wins in four games, most home fans will expect a similar scoreline to the USA’s 4-0 win over Ghana in their most recent match on October 18.
Trinidad are 88 places below the 11th-placed USA in the world rankings but have a considerable added incentive in the two-legged quarterfinal.
That is because a win for either side would guarantee them a place at the 2024 Copa America, as well as moving a step closer to the Nations League trophy which the USA are seeking to secure for a third successive edition.
The Sporting News looks at the key details ahead of this game, including kickoff times, viewing details and team news.

Despite missing key players such as Christian Pulisic and Tim Weah due to hamstring injuries, the USA boast a strong squad.

Trinidad and Tobago projected lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Smith (GK) — Jones, Moses, J. Garcia, Russell — Hackshaw, Rampersad — Telfer, Muckette, Auvray — L. Garcia.
The USA have regularly played Trinidad at home since 1985 and never failed to win on any occasion, so it is no surprise that they are overwhelming favourites to win here.
At 99th in FIFA’s rankings, Trinidad are 88 places below their opponents. Suffice to say, there are long odds to be found on any bet tipping Eve’s players to make any kind of impact in this game.
