[USA-JAMAICA] The USA will clinch the Hexagonal title for the third straight time if it beats Jamaica and Honduras defeats Costa Rica Friday.

0
The USA will look to match its Hexagonal record of having allowed no goals in all five home games with a shutout against Jamaica. In 2005, it won all five home games by a margin of 10-0. It's won the first four home games this year by a margin of 6-0.

The USA will clinch the Hexagonal title for the third straight time if it beats Jamaica and Honduras beats Costa Rica in San Pedro Sula Friday. Wins over Jamaica and Panama will give it 22 points, matching its record set in 2005. The Hexagonal record for points is 23, set by Costa Rica in 2001.

U.S. Hexagonal Records:
PTS (W-T-L -- PLACE) YEAR
16 (5-1-2 -- first) 2013
20 (6-2-2 -- first) 2009
22 (7-1-2 -- first) 2005
17 (5-2-3 -- third) 2001
17 (4-5-1 -- second) 1997

4
Only four starters in the USA's Hexagonal opener against Honduras are available Friday night: Tim Howard, Geoff Cameron, Jermaine Jones and Jozy Altidore. Not called in were Timmy Chandler, Fabian Johnson, Danny Williams, Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey, while Omar Gonzalez and Eddie Johnson have pulled out because of injuries.

8
No U.S. player will have played more than eight of 10 Hexagonal games in this cycle. Dempsey and Gonzalez are the only players who have started all eight games, but neither player is in camp. Of the players in camp, only DaMarcus Beasley, Howard, Jones and Altidore have started as many as six of the first eight games.
