CONCACAF has officially revealed the two matchups for the upcoming Nations League semifinals. The quarterfinals of the competition wrapped on Tuesday night following victories by Jamaica and Mexico. Jamaica booked their place in the semis by edging Canada 3-2 on the night. The two-legged fixture ended all square 4-4, but the Reggae Boyz advanced on the away goal rule.
Mexico, on the other hand, had to go to a penalty shootout to decide their matchup with Honduras. El Tri eventually topped their Central American opponents 4-2 on spot kicks. As a result, Mexico will next face Panama in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals.
Jamaica will face the USA in their Nations League semifinal fixture. The matchups were made due to the quartet’s results in the quarterfinal stage. Panama topped the table by winning both of their games against Costa Rica. As the top team in the standings, Panama earned a fixture against fourth-place Mexico. El Tri finished bottom of the four teams on goal difference.
The USMNT finished second in the standings with a positive goal differential of plus two. Jamaica, like Mexico, also compiled an even goal difference in the quarterfinal stage.
