The 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup will bring the United States men’s national team face to face with the author of its biggest nightmare.

Wednesday’s draw revealed the USMNT has been grouped with Trinidad & Tobago, which beat the Americans 2-1 in October 2017 to deny them a World Cup berth for the first time since 1986.

The United States will also face Panama and Guyana in Group D. Panama, along with T&T and the USMNT, reached the fifth and final round of 2018 World Cup qualifying, which features six teams and is colloquially known as the “Hex.” No other Gold Cup group has more than one team that made it that far.

The USMNT will meet Trinidad & Tobago in Gold Cup play for the first time since 2007. The USA has an 18-3-4 overall advantage against the Soca Warriors and is 3-0-0 vs. the island nation in Gold Cup matches.

Mexico headlines Group A, which also includes Canada, Martinique and Cuba. Group B features Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Haiti and Bermuda, while Group C has Honduras, Jamaica, El Salvador and Curaçao.

The biennial championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean has been contested 14 times, with Mexico winning seven titles, the United States winning six and Canada winning once. The USMNT is the defending champion, having raised the trophy in 2017.

Traditionally, Gold Cups played the year after the World Cup have been more competitive, with a berth in the FIFA Confederations Cup available to the winner. Each nation has therefore fielded its best team possible.

While the Confed Cup has effectively been abolished, this competition still figures to be the biggest early test for new U.S. coach Gregg Berhalter, who has won three of his first four matches in charge. What’s more, CONCACAF actually picks the groups itself, and doesn’t do a draw for the tournament:

Finland upsets Canada 4-2 to reach gold-medal game at worlds

Finland upsets Canada 4-2 to reach gold-medal game at worlds Noora Raty made 43 saves as Finland handed heavily favored Canada its first loss in a semifinal at the women's world hockey championship, winning 4-2 on Saturday to advance to the gold-medal game. Ronja Savolainen scored twice, including the empty-netter to seal it with 37 seconds left, and Jenni Hiirikoski and Susanna Tapani also scored for Finland. The hosts face the United States or Russia in the final on Sunday. The U.S. and Canada had met in all 18 previous world championship finals, dating to the first in 1990. The Canadians won 10 of those games, but only one of the last eight.

It won’t be easy for Berhalter and company. Certainly not at the start.

Tax overhaul hikes taxes for some Gold Star families on survivor benefits.
President Donald Trump's tax overhaul is forcing some military families to pay thousands of dollars more in taxes on their survivor benefits, according to a nonprofit organization that helps those families. Spouses who signed over their earned benefits to their children -- a move that is done in order to ensure the family of a deceased service member temporarily receives all their benefits -- saw an increase in taxes this year because the new tax law reclassified how children's assets are taxed, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors says.
