CenturyLink Field has provided one of the best atmospheres in MLS since the Seattle Sounders came into the league in 2009. That ambiance has also featured when the US national team have played in Seattle, the most recent example being in 2013 when they played Panama in a World Cup qualifier.

The US national team is on the verge of qualifying for the Copa America Centenario quarterfinals. All that’s left to do: Take care of business against Paraguay. The US will clinch a berth in the knockout rounds with a win on Saturday against Paraguay. They’ll more than likely advance with a draw, as well. Paraguay’s hopes are a bit bleaker. They need a win against the US and a Colombia win/draw against Costa Rica to go through to the next round.

Still, Panama boast a serious danger in Blas Perez, whose brace led them to victory over Bolivia on June 6.

The 2016 Copa America Centenario is widely considered the biggest soccer tournament to be held in the USA since the 1994 World Cup.
