A goalless draw with Mexico in the first game of the international break was far from the worst result for the United States, but the need to notch up that crucial win to reach Qatar is only growing now.

If the USMNT are shocked by Panama, Gregg Berhalter knows that a desperate Costa Rica could prove seriously dangerous to his side's automatic qualification hopes.

Predicted USMNT starting XI: Steffen; A. Robinson, Long, Zimmerman, Sands; Acosta, de la Torre, Musah; Pulisic, Pepi, Weah.

PositionPanama roster
Goalkeepers Mejia, Mosquera, Hughes, Samudio
Defenders Cummings, Davis, Escobar, Murillo, Andrade, Blackman, Gutierrez, Cordoba
Midfielders Quintero, Godoy, Barcenas, Rodriguez, Carrasquilla, Yanis, Ayarza, Martinez, Medina, Gondola
Forwards Torres, Blackburn, Waterman, Diaz

Having made a World Cup debut four years ago in Russia against all expectations, Los Canaleros are sizing up unlikely back-to-back runs to FIFA's biggest tournament.

Ex-Leeds and Union SG boss Thomas Christiansen knows that a win lifts his side up the rankings, to leave them just a point off the USMNT - and that the latter's clash wtih Costa Rica could offer a potential pathway to Qatar 2022.

Predicted Panama starting XI: Mejia; Murillo, Escobar, Andrade, Cummings; Carrasquilla, Godoy; Yanis, Gondola, Waterman; Blackburn.
