USMNT has chances, but loses to Mexico in Gold Cup final

USMNT has chances, but loses to Mexico in Gold Cup final”

United States midfielder Michael Bradley (4) talks with head coach Gregg Berhalter against Mexico during the first half in the championship match of the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer tournament at Soldier Field. These two teams last met in a friendly in September in a 1-0 win for the USA, but this one has much more at stake - including a major trophy. We're two managers, the teams in front of us are in front of us and one will go out happy and the other sad.

"We're close", he said, "but we weren't there tonight".

For much of the match, the Americans appeared to have the advantage, as they created numerous scoring chances, but proved unable to put the ball in the back of the net.

The Americans certainly had another opportunity to lift a major trophy against a Mexico side missing several key players.

Christian Pulisic, America's 20-year-old star midfielder, was the best USA player, using his bursts of speed and cutting ability to create chances.

"Over the course of 90 minutes, Mexico was the better team", Gregg Berhalter said after his first tournament as US coach.

McKennie, coming off an excellent season with Schalke in the Bundesliga, was given the captain's arm band for the first time but was largely ineffective. For us, the whole month has been about making progress. Weston McKennie netted a goal before a 90-minute weather delay, and Christian Pulisic scored twice off rebounds to send the U.S. back to the final, where it will look to defend its title.

"This experience will help us moving forward".

Players on the American women's team have been critical of the decision.

"You're always searching for a ideal performance so when you evaluate at every game, there's things that can improve", Berhalter added.

"First of all, the games are going to be played tomorrow, so whether I beg to differ or not is really irrelevant, quite frankly", Montagliani said Saturday at Soldier Field.

The United States National Teams achieved half of their desired results on Sunday.
