CONCACAF Gold Cup
A goal in the 69th minute gave the United States a 1-0 victory over Panama and the CONCACAF Gold Cup title. It is the fifth Gold Cup title for the Americans, but their first since 2007.
“I think all of us know that we’ll stand out individually if we do well as a team,” said U.S. forward Chris Wondolowski, of the San Jose Earthquakes, whose five goals lead all Gold Cup scorers.
San Jose Earthquakes forward Alan Gordon was added to the United States’ CONCACAF Gold Cup roster ahead of a quarterfinal match against El Salvador.
Chris Wondolowski scored two more goals to raise his total to five in two matches, and the Americans overcame a slow start to beat Cuba 4-1 Saturday and advance to the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals.
