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.

USA Gets Win They Needed Against Jamaica

The U.S. Men’s National Team grabbed the biggest win in Jurgen Klinsmann’s U.S. reign last night as they beat Jamaica 1-0 thanks to a goal from Herculez Gomez. With the win, the USA who moved to the top of Group A with two rounds of matches left.

The first 45 minutes was as good a performance that I have seen a US side put in, in a long time. On the 11-year anniversary of Sept. 11th, backed by a loud and boisterous crowd at Crew Stadium the American’s took the game to Jamaica from the opening whistle and could have scored five or six; hitting the woodwork three times and forcing Jamaica’s goalkeeper Dwayne Miller into a couple of brilliant saves.
