Audio: Besler previews USMNT match-up with Jamaica

Earlier today, we heard from Peter Vermes on 610 Sports Radio as the Sporting KC manager previewed tonight's FIFA World Cup qualifier between the United States and Jamaica (8:30 p.m. CT on beIN SPORT). Now we turn the microphone over to Sporting KC defender Matt Besler for his insight from inside the U.S. Men's National Team camp in Kingston less than 8 hours until kickoff at National Stadium.

"I think it's a huge game for us. We're coming off two friendlies. In the Germany game, we gained a lot of confidence. But the qualifiers are always a little bit more intense. We know Jamaica is going to come after us and we've got to be ready. I think they're going to be tired a little bit. Their legs are going to be tired, because they played three days ago. So we're going to try and use that to our advantage. Jamaica is a physical tough team with a lot of speed so we've got to be careful about that. That's going to be crucial. We've got to match their intensity because they're going to come out flying. They really need points. I think once we do that, we can worry about the quality coming out in our side."
