The United States men’s national team picked up a vital three points on Thursday, beating Jamaica 2-0 in World Cup qualifying. Ricardo Pepi, the budding 18-year-old star, was the hero once again, scoring both goals as Gregg Berhalter’s side overcame the absences of Christian Pulisic, Gio Reyna and John Brooks. The victory moves the U.S. up the Concacaf table in qualifying and it gives the group a bunch of momentum ahead of Sunday’s tricky visit to Panama, which you can see on Paramount+.

So how did each USMNT player rate in this one? All ratings are out of 10, and the higher the number the better. A zero would be a first-minute red card. A 10 would be a dominant hat trick. Let’s get to it.

USA player ratings

(GK) Matt Turner

90 Sure handed as always, but in truth he had very little to do. Clean as can be on the few crosses he dealt with.


(DEF) Antonee Robinson

90 Struggled a bit to stay in front of his attacker, but he made some great runs down what was an open left flank. His crossing left a lot to be desired though.


(DEF) Walker Zimmerman

90 Was always ready to cover for Sergino Dest when he was out of position, which was often. Did everything well and was a sure thing in his challenges.


(DEF) Miles Robinson

90 Had very little to do. He didn’t even have to make a tackle in this game. Was strong in the air though and won most 50-50 balls. 7

(DEF) Sergino Dest

77 A continued liability in defense that tries to be too cute. Lucky…
