United States shuts out Nicaragua to win Group B

Nicaragua vs USA

The U.S. has won its group in 13 of 14 Gold Cups, finishing second to Panama in 2011.

The U.S. Men's National Team looks to finish atop 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup Group B when it takes on Nicaragua in the Group Stage finale on Saturday, July 15.

Miazga, a Chelsea defender playing his first worldwide match since May 2016, had an open header near a post and scored his first goal in three national team appearances. The U.S. will face El Salvador, Honduras or Jamaica. Bruce Arena's team accomplished that goal, defeating Nicaragua 3-0 in Cleveland.

Torres capped the scoring in the 67th minute after weaving around Martinique goalkeeper Kevin Olimpa and tucking the ball inside the right post. The goal scored in Wednesday's game against Panama was the first in Gold Cup history for the company, 26 years after the tournament was founded.

Currently, there are only about 500 North Atlantic right whales left on the planet and seven were found dead in the Gulf of St. A group of wildlife veterinarians said that several of these whales showed signs of blunt trauma, the National Post reported.

However, Dwyer's left-footed penalty was saved by Nicaraguan keeper Justo Lorente, keeping Dwyer from becoming the third player in USMNT history to score a goal in each of his first three caps with the team.

Arroyo doubled the lead on the hour mark following another corner, and seven minutes later Torres made sure of the win.

A hand ball in the Nicaragua penalty area five minutes later gave Corona a chance to score his second of the game and give the US the margin it would need to win the group. Nicaragua was down to nine when Luis Peralta was carried off the field. The USMNT would tack on a third goal in the 88th minute by way of a Matt Miazga header, three minutes after Nicaragua dropped to ten men due to defender Luis Copete receiving his second yellow card of the match. The USMNT got another opportunity with Graham Zusi taking a free kick from just outside of the box.
