Why you should back Team USA
The Stars and Stripes are gearing up for the World Cup and know they can’t let off the gas. They need to lock in their tactics and key pieces before November, and they need some goals to build confidence in the attack. They should be able to get plenty against a Grenada team that is 0-2-8 since the start of 2021. Grenada has allowed 23 goals while scoring just six over that span. Meanwhile, the Americans have conceded five goals in eight games in 2022, going 4-2-2.
The USMNT is 22-3-0 in its past 25 home matches, and it had consecutive clean sheets against teams superior to Grenada. Team USA is 15th in FIFA’s world rankings, while Grenada is 170th. Uruguay ranks 13th and Morocco is No. 24. Christian Pulisic (21 goals), Weston McKennie (nine) and Brenden Aaronson (six) have been keys to the attack, but the USMNT has quality depth. Jordan Morris (10), Paul Arriola (nine) and Timothy Weah (three) also are capable scorers.
Why you should back Grenada
Grenada started to find its rhythm in the past two games after a shaky start to 2022. They went 0-1-2 in three friendlies before kicking off this Nations League campaign, but they scored three goals in the two matches with El Salvador. Jamal Charles, Alexander McQueen and Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong were the goal-scorers. Charles is the top international scorer on the team with 14 goals in 28 matches, tied for third-most in the national team’s history.
Charles scored six goals in six matches during the last Nations League run to earn Grenada its League A spot. He is a big target on set pieces and thrives on scooping up loose balls. Grenada also has a strong back line that is led by captain Tyrone Sterling and Benjamin Ettienne on the outside, with Kayden Harrack and A.J. Paterson in the middle. Etienne, 19, and 18-year-old Harrack have bright futures with the team, and Sterling’s impact is his leadership and versatility.
