Mexico’s Jonathan dos Santos scored in the 73rd minute to give his side a 1-0 win over the United States in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final on Sunday.
The victory over the defending champions at Chicago’s Soldier Field earned Mexico a record-extending eighth title at the biennial tournament, which crowns the continental champions of North America, Central America and the Caribbean.
‘This was what we came here for,’ said Mexico’s Andres Guardado. ‘We did it and in an unforgettable setting. We’re very happy. The whole team was spectacular.’
