The USA vs Jamaica live stream takes place today (October 7).
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT / 12:30 a.m. BST

When the two sides meet in Austin's Q2 Stadium, it's certain to be an intense, physical clash. The stakes are high for both teams.

USA entered the September window with high expectations but left with two disappointing draws against El Salvador and Canada and a much-improved 4-1 win against Honduras. The five points earned ties them with Canada and Panama, and only behind table leader Mexico.

Meanwhile, Jamaica is at the bottom of the group table with one point after losing against Mexico and Panama and drawing against Costa Rica.

The two teams have faced each other 15 times in World Cup qualifying, with USA generally having the upper hand (7-1-6). The USMNT have already won against Jamaica twice this year — first in a 4-1 friendly in March, then 1-0 in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Quarterfinals.

USA is missing a few key stars, including Christian Pulisic. However, veteran MLS forwards Paul Arriola and Gyasi Zardes rejoin the team after injuries. 

Can USA get a win? You can find out by watching the USA vs Jamaica live stream — and we'll show you how to do that below.
