The United States Men's National team continue their Concacaf Nations League campaign away to El Salvador on Tuesday evening.

Gregg Berhalter's side made the perfect start with a 5-0 thrashing of a Grenada side ranked 170th in the world on Friday, with four goals from Jesus Ferreira and another from FC Dallas teammate Paul Arriola.

El Salvador, meanwhile, took four points from their two games against Grenada, but that only served to end a five-game winless streak for a team that finished seventh out of eight in the final round of Concacaf World Cup qualifying.

All the expectation will be on a USMNT win, so read on to find out how you can watch Tuesday's match and catch up on team news.

This match marks the halfway point in the USMNT's World Cup preparations and Berhalter still has plenty of issues to sort out.

We already know Haji Wright will start up front, giving the Antalyaspor striker another chance to make a statement in the battle for the No.9 shirt. Wright scored on his debut in the recent 3-0 friendly win over Morocco.

Elsewhere, expect the likes of Christian Pulisic and Tyler Adams to return after sitting out the win over Grenada.

USMNT predicted XI: Turner; Cannon, Zimmerman, Long, Robinson; Adams, Musah, McKennie; Pulisic, Wright, Weah.


El Salvador vs USMNT head-to-head record

In the 25 previous meetings between these two nations, the United States have enjoyed almost complete dominance.

The USMNT have beaten El Salvador on 25 occasions to date and have never tasted defeat, suffering just five draws.

During the recent World Cup qualifying double-header, the Stars and Stripes won 1-0 at home thanks to an Antonee Robinson strike following a 0-0 draw in El Salvador.


El Salvador vs USMNT score prediction

It's been almost complete one-way traffic between these two nations and given the disparity in quality heading into this match, it's hard to see anything changing.

That's not to say the USMNT don't have issues to work out, and Berhalter still has plenty of headaches as the World Cup approaches.

But the likes of Pulisic, Adams, and Tim Weah should have far, far too much quality for El Salvador.

Prediction: El Salvador 0-3 USMNT
