The U.S. men’s national soccer team’s 2017 Gold Cup run hasn’t gotten off to an ideal start.

The Americans opened the tournament with a disappointing draw against Panama, and they barely eeked out a win against Martinique. Luckily for them, though, they still are atop the Group B standings with four points, and they face point-less Nicaragua on Saturday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.

Keep it right here for score updates and highlights from USA vs. Nicaragua with our live blog.

FINAL, USA 3-0: Team USA scored three goals, which means it won Group B over Panama and a more favorable draw in the quarterfinals.

88th minute, USA 3-0: Graham Zusi has the perfect delivery off the free kick, and Matt Miazga scores the third goal, which Team USA desperately needed.

86th minute, USA 2-0: Henry Nino got his second yellow card, leading to a red card and ejection. The U.S. will have the man-advantage for the final five minutes. Luis Galeano also is injured, though, and is off the pitch for the moment. 

78th minute, USA 2-0: Time is running out for the U.S. to get one more goal.

63rd minute, USA 2-0: A handball gives the U.S. another penalty shot, and Joe Corona’s shot is stopped. That’s the second failed penalty kick for the Americans.

56th minute, USA 2-0: The New England Revolution’s Kelyn Rowe gives the U.S. its second goal of the night. The Americans now are one goal away from their desired three-goal advantage.

51st minute, USA 1-0: Dom Dwyer had a penalty kick, but he couldn’t take advantage.

And it's saved! Dwyer hits it hard but the keeper guesses the right way and saves it.

46th minute, USA 1-0: The second half is underway.

Halftime, USA 1-0: Joe Corona put the U.S. on the board with a goal in the 37th minute, but the Americans still need two more goals in the second half to avoid Costa Rica in the quarterfinals.

37th minute, USA 1-0: Just what the doctor ordered. Joe Corona gives USA the first of three goals it needs to earn the top spot in Group B.

33rd minute, 0-0: Still scoreless, which isn’t good for Team USA. The Americans need a three-goal win to get first place in Group A.

20th minute, 0-0: Graham Zusi created a chance for himself with some nifty footwork, but his shot goes right at goalkeeper Justo Lorente.

19th minute, 0-0: Another dangerous opportunity for Nicaragua, but the game remains scoreless.

15th minute, 0-0: The U.S. got the ball back in the offensive zone pretty quickly, but Nicaragua came up with two key blocks.
