CHICAGO- The U.S. Men’s National Team will look to recapture the CONCACAF Gold Cup title we haven’t seen the Americans lift since 2007, and the U.S. will look to do so today against Panama (4pm, FOX) in Soldier Field, the same stadium where their last Gold Cup triumph took place.
Standing in the way of an American championship and Windy City celebration is Panama, which rolls into the Gold Cup riding a wave of confident after beating Mexico for the second time in the tournament to secure a place in the final.
Landon Donovan has been the player of the tournament, leading the U.S. attack, but he will go up against a tough Panama defense that has come together well despite missing captain Felipe Baloy. For Panama, Blas Perez will look to lead an attack that features another dangerous striker in Gabriel Torres.
