USA opens Gold Cup with draw vs Panama

10 July 2017

English-born striker Dom Dwyer scored for the United States - his second goal in as many matches for his adopted country putting the USA up 1-0 in the 50th minute. The Confederations Cup just finished Sunday and some European clubs will soon be playing preseason exhibitions across the U.S. Against Panama, on Saturday, he doubled his scoring total, giving him two goals in two matches in a USA shirt.

"When I was in MLS, I always tried to get him in trades, just never successful at it", Arena said. Featuring the country's most promising players, the Tri squad will not be short of pace and has the ability to trouble any defence.

I understand that you need 8 teams to make the knock-out stage work but the tournament is hurt with this format.

Next up, the United States will face group leader Martinique on July 12, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Mexico has won it seven times, the us five and Canada won it once; no Central American or Caribbean team has won it.

The U.S. entered 4-0-4 since Bruce Arena started his second stint as coach, replacing Jurgen Klinsmann in November. Rowe set up the chance with some skillful dribbling moves to get by Luis Ovalle, then a pass toward the top of the box.

Well because in these moments beneath the rubble, Peter truly recognizes what kind of person he wants to be. So the end of Avengers 4 will be the end of the MCU that started with Iron Man back in 2008.

Panama, finalists in 2013 and semifinalists in 2011 and 2015, will be the biggest threat to the U.S.in the group stage, having drawn 1-1 with the U.S.in a World Cup qualifier in March.

The second games for Group A will be played at Houston's BBVA Compass Stadium.

The record-breaking crowd was about 2,000 more than were in Music City for the US Gold Cup tune-up game a few years ago. At this tournament, the Martinique team played three times, and the best achievement is the ¼ finals in 2002.

Although the majority of the top soccer leagues around the world are now in the offseason, there are important matches taking place on the worldwide stage. "I'll say it's a good experience for a number of our players".

Most people see it as a cash grab by CONCACAF but it's a good thing. He scored his first goal for team U.S. on a free kick in a friendly against Ghana earlier this month, and has shown the potential to be a quality two-way player.

In South America, they have Copa America but only every four years. However, the mid 80s heat of Tennessee stopped the game at the 28th minute.

Panama responded well to falling behind and should have been level when Diaz somehow blazed over from a yard out after Gabriel Torres's header had been saved by Guzan.

"Panama is an extremely tough opponent, especially right out of the gate", said defender Matt Besler. "They did a good job of frustrating us and (getting) balls in good areas for them and bad areas for us".

It marked the first time the United States had failed to win their first match at the Gold Cup, which they have lifted on five occasions. The U.S. opens against Panama on Saturday in Nashville.

He was traded in January from the New York Red Bulls to Chicago, which won its only Major League Soccer championship in 1998, and has helped turn around the Fire's fortunes.
