The 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup has reached the semi-final stage with the four remaining nations battling it out for glory. Who will go all the way to the title in the States? Here is everything you need to know about the tournament…


CONCACAF Gold Cup Preview

Each of the 13 previous editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup have been won by either Mexico or the USA, who are the favourites to lift the trophy in 2017.

The Mexicans are the defending champions after claiming a seventh title in 2015 but, following their exertions at the FIFA Confederations Cup over the past month, Juan Carlos Osorio has named a completely new squad for this tournament.

Bruce Arena has also opted for youth over experience with the Americans this year, having left the likes of Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey, Jozy Altidore and Christian Pulisic out of his 23-man party.

Nevertheless, both nations are expected to be in contention come the final on July 26, although the likes of Honduras, Costa Rica and Jamaica shall attempt to buck the trend in 2017.

The Hondurans, who captured the Copa Centroamericana earlier this year, boast plenty of experience in the likes of Maynor Figueroa and Boniek Garcia, as do La Sele with talisman Bryan Ruiz leading their charge, while the Jamaicans are aiming to go the extra step after losing out to Mexico in the final two years ago.

Panama are also looking to make it third time lucky having been runners-up on two occasions, while El Salvador and Martinique will want to venture into unchartered territory by progressing beyond the quarter-finals for the first time.

Elsewhere, 2000 champions Canada are seeking a second title with Toronto FC forward Tosaint Ricketts carrying their greatest threat, as Nicaragua return to the tournament after an eight-year absence.

Meanwhile, there are two debutants in America this year including Curacao, who finished third on two occasions as the Netherlands Antilles in the 1960s and boast familiar names of Cuco Martina and Leandro Bacuna.

The other is the French Guinea and they will be looking for inspiration from former France midfielder Florent Malouda who, at 37, shall want to show everyone that he still has it.

He will be in action when the country of his birth kicks off the tournament against Canada at 2pm BST on July 7.

Today's Tip




So, who will join USA in the final on Wednesday? Mexico and Jamaica are about to battle it out at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena for the right to do so.

Based on the head-to-head record and experience of this stage in the Gold Cup, you would have to favour the Mexicans, who are the defending champions and appearing in a fifth consecutive semi-final.

Not only that, but they have lost just once in 14 meetings with Jamaica, who have failed to score in four of the last five.

Therefore, it may be worth a punt on a 2-0 victory in favour of El Tri, which is priced at 11/2 with William Hill.

CONCACAF Gold Cup Outright Tip




As touched upon earlier, all 13 previous editions of the CONCACAF Gold Cup have been won by one of two nations - Mexico or the USA.

The Americans are now just one match away from continuing that record following their 2-0 victory over Costa Rica in the semi-finals on Sunday.

Bruce Arena named a fairly inexperienced squad for the tournament but they have more than held their own and, with the established likes of Michael Bradley, Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore joining the ranks later on, the Stars and Stripes will be confident of claiming a sixth Gold Cup success.

Therefore, it is worth a punt on them lifting the trophy on Thursday at 11/8 with BetVictor.
