A closer look at Bruce Arena’s lineups in the Gold Cup

Bruce Arena promised to use the CONCACAF Gold Cup as a testing ground and, as the Americans make final preparations for Wednesday’s final against Jamaica, each of the 24 outfield players and three of the five goalkeepers have started at least one of the five matches. He also wanted to vary the formation and shape […]

USMNT Coach Bruce Arena uses Gold Cup success to take a good look at his entire roster

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. — Bruce Arena’s goals entering the CONCACAF Gold Cup went beyond beating regional rivals and raising a championship trophy. They were about strengthening bonds eighth months into his second tour as U.S. men’s national soccer team coach. They were also about introducing newcomers to the hardships of the international game, offering hope […]

‘We want to win a trophy’: U.S. soccer prepares for Reggae Boyz in Gold Cup final

SAN JOSE — The matchup in the Gold Cup final is not the one CONCACAF privately wanted because a U.S.-Mexico showdown elevates ticket sales and stirs curiosity beyond the region’s borders. It’s not what Fox Sports and Univision wanted either, because a U.S. vs. Mexico match, in any soccer competition, draws strong TV numbers. None […]

Jamaica, not Mexico, will join the United States in Gold Cup final

Kamar Lawrence’s 88th-minute free kick sent Jamaica to a 1-0 upset over reigning champion Mexico on Sunday in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals at the Rose Bowl, setting up a championship showdown with the United States and sabotaging a widely expected U.S.-Mexico final. The Americans and Reggae Boyz will collide Wednesday at Levi’s Stadium in […]

Clint Dempsey, the ‘kid from Nacogdoches,’ lifts U.S. soccer team into Gold Cup final

ARLINGTON, TEX. — The CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal Saturday between the United States and Costa Rica had rambled into the second half without a goal. There was a sense, though, that a personnel change could sway the direction of the taut match and decide the winner before a penalty kick tiebreaker cruelly did the honors. […]

Clint Dempsey leads U.S. to Gold Cup semifinal win over Costa Rica

ARLINGTON, TEX. — Bruce Arena has treated the CONCACAF Gold Cup as a testing ground for several secondary players. But make no mistake: He also wants to win the championship very badly. And so with Saturday’s tense semifinal with Costa Rica scoreless midway through the second half, Arena turned to an old warrior, Clint Dempsey. […]

Series of games vs. Costa Rica could be decisive for U.S. men’s national team

ARLINGTON, TEX. — Costa Rica is a notable figure in the U.S. national soccer team’s recent past and very near future. So in the countdown to Saturday’s meeting in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals, three encounters over 9 1/2 months have become inherently linked. If not for Costa Rica’s 4-0 romp at home in November, […]

Beyond ‘nipple-gate’: CONCACAF looks into alleged bite during U.S.’s odd Gold Cup win

The U.S. Soccer Federation has shared with CONCACAF Gold Cup’s disciplinary committee a photo of bite marks on defender Omar Gonzalez’s shoulder, allegedly inflicted during one of several odd incidents in Wednesday’s quarterfinal between the U.S. men’s national soccer team and El Salvador in Philadelphia. The disciplinary committee Thursday reached out to the USSF for […]

U.S. soccer beats El Salvador, advances to Gold Cup semifinals

PHILADELPHIA — Several familiar faces rejoined the U.S. men’s national team lineup Wednesday, a fresh injection of experience and resolve for the final, week-long sprint toward the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer title. With a mix of newcomers and holdovers, the Americans needed almost one half to find their bearings before striking twice in a five-minute […]

American Christian Pulisic excels in Dortmund’s preseason win over AC Milan

Like many U.S. national team regulars, Christian Pulisic isn’t playing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Instead, he’s in preseason camp with Borussia Dortmund, and on Tuesday, while a mixed U.S. group was preparing in Philadelphia for Wednesday’s quarterfinal against El Salvador, the teenager was in top form in Guangzhou, China, assisting on two goals and […]

U.S. soccer calls in reinforcements ahead of Gold Cup quarterfinal

PHILADELPHIA — As the CONCACAF Gold Cup approached, Bruce Arena decided to crack the tournament into two parts. The first, consisting of three U.S. national soccer team matches in a lightweight group, would spotlight almost everyone on a mostly novice, mostly MLS roster: blossoming prospects, players seeking second chances and those forgotten under the previous […]

CONCACAF Gold Cup sets schedule for elimination stage

As CONCACAF competitions tend to be, the Gold Cup group stage was a strange little rodeo: French Guiana fielded an ineligible player, knowing full well it would forfeit the match (and subsequently get hit by sanctions). Honduras advanced despite failing to score; it’s three “goals” were awarded through French Guiana’s forfeit. The United States relinquished […]

Bruce Arena makes maximum number of roster changes to U.S. soccer team at Gold Cup

The CONCACAF Gold Cup is full of wrinkles, none more odd than allowing roster changes after the group stage of the 12-team regional competition. U.S. Coach Bruce Arena took full advantage of the rule Sunday, replacing the maximum six players and bolstering the experience level of a largely unseasoned squad that struggled at times in […]

U.S. tops Nicaragua, finishes atop Group B in Gold Cup

In many ways, the U.S. men’s national soccer team did not deserve to finish atop Group B in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The Americans weren’t very good in the first two matches and, on Saturday against a weak opponent, they failed to convert two penalty kicks 12 minutes apart in the second half. But they […]
