Mexico captures Gold Cup with win over US

Project Starting XI

The United States Women's National team isn't the only USA soccer team playing in a championship game this weekend.

The U.S. Men's National Team will take on Mexico in the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup final on Sunday, July 7 at 6 p.m. PT at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois.

Their soccer success marks Team USA's second consecutive Women's World Cup win - their fourth in total.

The other five are defenders Luis Rodriguez, Carlos Salcedo, and Jesus Gallardo, as well as midfielders Jonathan dos Santos and Andres Guardado. "We did it and in an unforgettable setting". And on a day when the US Women Team will look to star player Alex Morgan to lead them to World Cup glory, the men's team should expect nothing less from their star performer. In the 73rd minute, Jonathan dos Santos received a back heel from Raul Jimenez before deftly tucking the ball into the top left corner, grazing the crossbar as it crossed the goal line and into the back of the net.

The game was scoreless at halftime, but less than six minutes into the second half, the Americans almost scored on a header off a corner kick.

The hosts threw everyone forward in the two minutes of stoppage time but Mexico held firm to reclaim the title they last won in 2015. "What we lacked was I think some of the calmness, some of the composure".

Sudanese say US pressure was key to reaching transition deal
As a reminder, the AU has suspended Sudan from its membership until a civilian led transitional authority is established. The agreement comes after a long standoff between the two sides since the suspension of talks in May.

"If anything the beginning of the second half wasn't what it needed to be", said American midfielder Michael Bradley. "Obviously then you get a little bit exhausted, and they start to gain some momentum, obviously. Tough way to lose".

Chelsea FC winger Cristian Pulisic burst into the box in the 5 minute, but goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa came up with a clutch 1-v-1 save.

They claimed the World Cup title after Captain Megan Rapinoe converted penalty in the second half and Rose Lavelle added another later in the match.

Tempers flared after the break when Moreno pushed Altidore over and then dropped onto his back.

One drawback for the USMNT was the performance of Weston McKennie, who had arguably been the best player in the Gold Cup up to that point.

Mexico suddenly moved up a gear and after creating a number of chances Dos Santos finally broke the deadlock to set his side on their way to victory.
