The United States opens up its defense of the CONCACAF Gold Cup Tuesday night with a matchup against Honduras.
The Red, White, & Blue are looking for the the country's fifth Gold Cup win after raising the trophy in 2013 with a 1-0 victory over Panama in the tournament's Final.
The U.S. enters this match in very good form after two convincing wins in Europe and a big victory on home soil.
First was a dramatic win against the Netherlands on June 5 where the U.S. trailed 3-1 after 53 minutes and entered the last five minutes of the match down 3-2. Danny Williams and Bobby Wood scored in the 88th and 90th minute respectively to earn the 4-3 win over the No. 6-ranked team in the world at Amsterdam Arena.
This was the first win for the Red, White, & Blue over the Netherlands in five meetings.
Five days later, the U.S.A. earned another first, the first victory over 2014 World Cup champions Germany on home soil.
After a 12th minute goal from Mario Goetze gave the German's the lead, U.S. midfielder Mix Diskerud equalized four minutes from halftime. Once again, the Yanks saved it for late, with Wood again providing the winner two minutes from the final whistle.
On July 3, in a tuneup match for the Gold Cup, the USMNT defeated Guatemala 4-0 to send the team into the tournament in the best possible way. The match featured a Guatemalan own goal, as well as a Clint Dempsey penalty kick and goals from Timmy Chandler and Chris Wondolowski.
Assuming he plays, Michael Bradley will earn his 100th cap for his country in this match.
The U.S. enters the competition in Group A along with Honduras, Haiti, and Panama. Group B features Costa Rica, El Salvador, Canada, and Jamaica, while Group C is made up of Mexico, Trinidad, Cuba, and Guatemala.
After this match, the USMNT will play Haiti on July 10 and Panama on July 13 to conclude the group stage.
As heavy favorite for the group, the U.S. will look to open with another big win. This is your destination to chat during the match with other U.S. fans so check back to see what people are saying.
