But when the Gold Cup final arrived, the U . S . team couldn’t top tournament-favorite Mexico in a 1-0 loss at Soldier Field. The Gold Cup final could have been even more: a confidence-building night in this new era of U . S . men ’ s soccer.

When I saw the semifinal [between Canada and Mexico] I didn't think the referee did a good job of managing that at all. And they need to get ahead of that. There can't be any hands to the neck or to the face."
