USA Beats Mexico To Lift Gold Cup

USMNT Gold Cup Winners

U.S. men’s national team boss Gregg Berhalter admitted that he really wanted to see his players rewarded by winning Sunday’s Gold Cup as he hailed his “relentless” young team for finding a way to take down Mexico.

A late goal from Miles Robinson in extra time earned the 1-0 victory, giving the USMNT its second statement win over its top rivals this summer.

Having called in a squad without many of the program’s European stars, the USMNT wasn’t expected to go toe-to-toe with El Tri, but Berhalter said he always knew his young squad had what it took to emerge with a trophy.

U.S. to play Honduras and Holland

The United States Soccer Federation has announced two World Cup warm-up games for the U.S. next year.

First up for the U.S. national team will be Honduras at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California on Jan. 23. This date is not an official FIFA date, so none of the U.S. (or Honduras) players who play in Europe will playing.

However, the U.S. will just be finishing its annual January training camp right before the game, so this will be a great opportunity for some of the U.S.’s MLS stars to shine.
