USA stagger Mexico in additional chance to win Gold Cup last

“Simply wonderful, insane feelings. I knew whether I could get open and get a half advance then I could complete it.”
This was the American group’s first Gold Cup title since 2017, and retaliated for their loss to Mexico in the 2019 last.
The upstart Americans completed undefeated in the competition this year.
The banner waving, sold-out horde of more than 60,000 was an ocean of Mexican allies in green and red.
It was a natural scene for the American group, used to being dealt with like an opposing group on home soil at whatever point they play Mexico.
