The New England Revolution's trio marches on at the Concacaf Gold Cup as both the United States and Canada advanced to the competition's semifinals with victories on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Matt Turner made five saves - including a stellar diving stop late in the first half - to keep his fourth clean sheet in five appearances with the USMNT, guiding the Americans to a 1-0 win over Jamaica. It was Turner's third shutout in this competition alone as he continues to stake his claim with the U.S. National Team.

Matthew Hoppe's 83rd-minute header proved decisive for the U.S., which advances to Thursday night's semifinals and a meeting with Qatar at Q2 Stadium in Austin, Texas (7:30 p.m. ET, FS1). Henry Kessler, who joined the USMNT this past Wednesday as a medical replacement, was an unused substitute on Sunday night and remains in search of his first appearance with the senior national team.

In the first half of Sunday's doubleheader it was Tajon Buchanan and Canada that booked their place in the semifinals with a 2-0 win over Costa Rica. Buchanan went 88 minutes and while he nearly picked up an assist as the Canadians pushed for a third goal in the late stages, his contributions were felt all over the field.

Canada will battle Mexico on Thursday night at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas (10 p.m. ET, FS1). Should both the USMNT and Canada win their semifinal matches, it would set up a championship rematch of the group stage game which Turner and the U.S. won, 1-0.
