Gold Cup Final: Channels and How to Stream

Pulisic and Altidore missed good chances and Morris had another cleared off the line, while Mexico saw its period of dominance capped off with Dos Santos' victor.

Tournament champions in 2017, the US earned their spot in the final on the strength of a 3-1 win over Jamaica in the semifinals.

Berhalter, the first American to coach the national team after playing in the World Cup for the USA, wants a possession-based team.

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

With today's victory, Mexico has won the CONCACAF Gold Cup for the 8th time.

In contrast to the positive response from the crowd in France, whenever American Zack Steffen took a goal kick, there were loud chants of 'puto, ' an anti-gay slur Mexican fans repeatedly have been admonished for.

Striker Rodolfo Pizarro sent a cross into the box from the right flank during the game's lone scoring sequence.

Christian Pulisic, America's 20-year-old star midfielder, was the best US player, using his bursts of speed and cutting ability to create chances. Second-half sub Cristian Roldan's point-blank shot hit Héctor Moreno on the head and bounced away in the 87th.

Greg Berhalter's squad had a few great opportunities to grab the lead, but they failed to put one in the net, and Jonathan dos Santos' goal in the 73rd minute was the difference.

Jordan Morris thought he had broken the deadlock just after half time, but he saw his header from close range blocked off the line by the indefatigable Andres Guardado.

Morris almost broke the deadlock for the USMNT in the 51 minute, rising well to meet a Pulisic corner, but his goal-bound header was cleared off the line by Andrés Guardado.

Mexico slipped by Haiti thanks to a Raul Jimenez penalty kick in a 1-0 win to book their ticket to the final match. El Tri dominated the second half and finally broke through on Jonathan dos Santos' goal in the 73rd minute to give new head coach Tata Martino his first worldwide title. Qualifying for the 2022 World Cup will not start until next summer, leaving the biennial championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean as the first measuring test. El Tri has not lost a competitive match to the US since 2013, winning three, drawing one and re-establishing itself as the region's power.
