Gold Cup: Mexico champion for the 8th time
Although the USA and Mexico had chances to open the scoring, Jonathan dos Santos was the only man who was able to pierce the rival arc and 'El Tri' won his eighth Gold Cup at Soldier Field, Chicago.
Dos Santos scored in the 73rd minute. The United States had its chances in the first half, but Mexico reacted after the break. Argentine coach Gerardo 'Tata' Martino remains unbeaten with Mexico where he arrived after a triumphant step with Atlanta United in the MLS.
Both teams are in a transition phase. With this victory, Mexico is confirmed as the number one in CONCACAF.
The Americans had two clear scoring opportunities within the first eight minutes of the game through Jozy Altidore and Christian Pulisic.
