Jamaica and Panama square off in the Concacaf Gold Cup quarterfinals Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, with the winner advancing to the semifinals July 3 in Nashville. 

This is the second all-time meeting in the Gold Cup between the Reggae Boyz and Los Canaleros with the teams playing to a 1-1 draw during the group stage in 1993. 

Jamaica 

Project Starting XI

Jamaica finished atop Group C, but did so rather unconvincingly with one win and two draws, including a 1-1 result against Curacao on the final day of the group stage Monday at Banc of California Stadium to reach the Gold Cup quarterfinals for a third consecutive tournament and seventh time overall. Shamar Nicholson opened the scoring for Jamaica, which rotated four of its front six, on 14 minutes, but Curacao leveled on a stunning shot by Jurien Gaari in second-half stoppage time. 

The Reggae Boyz, whose only win came against Honduras in Kingston, secured five points in a group that wasn't decided until the last matchday. Curacao claimed second on goal differential after El Salvador fell to Honduras in the group's final match. 

Panama 

Project Starting XI

Victories against Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana secured Panama's seventh consecutive spot in the quarterfinals ahead of a tight 1-0 loss to the United States Wednesday night at Children's Mercy Park.  

With a chance to finish atop Group D, Los Canaleros fell to rotated USMNT, 1-0, on Jozy Altidore's 66th-minute goal. Panama only forced goalkeeper Sean Johnson to make one save.
