Game Highlights

Mexico 1-0 USA
10:07 PM2 years ago
Jonathan Dos Santos banger gave Mexico their first title in the Gerardo Martino Era. 
10:07 PM2 years ago


After 94 minutes of action, Mexico beats the United States and wins the gold Cup 2019 in Chicago.
10:02 PM2 years ago


Guardado leaves and Reyes comes in. 
10:02 PM2 years ago


Incredible double save by the best goalkeeper in Mexico history. Guillermo Ochoa, once again, clutch. 
10:00 PM2 years ago


Antuna leaves the pitch and Alvarado comes in. 
9:58 PM2 years ago


84 minutes in and still no yellow cards. Really poor game from the referee. 
9:57 PM2 years ago


Final move from Berlharter. Lowitz for Ream. 
9:55 PM2 years ago


'Tata' makes a move. Pizarro leaves the pitch and Carlos Rodriguez subs in. 
9:54 PM2 years ago
Dos Santos goal that has Mexico 10 minutes away from winning the 'chip.
9:52 PM2 years ago


Really poor game by Moreno. Even though Mexico is winning, the center back is playing a really bad match. 
9:51 PM2 years ago


Absolute banger by Dos Santos with his left foot.
9:47 PM2 years ago


Jonathan Dos Santos scores the first goal of the match after a 'cheeky' play by Jimenez. 
9:46 PM2 years ago


Gallardo shoots from outside the box but staring into Steffen's hands.
9:41 PM2 years ago


Mexico starting to gain confidence. Two clear chances in a row for Jimenez but the striker is not able to score. 
9:38 PM2 years ago


Another sub from the home team. Zardes comes in for Altidore.
9:35 PM2 years ago


First substitution of the game. Roldan comes in for Morris.
9:31 PM2 years ago


So far Gallardo and Rodriguez haven't been able to make an impact on the game. The left back and right back just can't send a good cross in. 
9:28 PM2 years ago
Morris' early chance in the second half 
9:25 PM2 years ago


Unreal save from Guardado on the line after a header from Morris. Another good chance for the US of A. 
9:22 PM2 years ago


McKennie and Moreno go at it. Hard foul from the defender on Altidore.
9:19 PM2 years ago


Even though Pizarro suffered an elbow injury at the end of the first half, he will continue. 
9:18 PM2 years ago


Second half is underway in Chicago. 
9:02 PM2 years ago


First half is over. Close game but the clearest chances have been for the US so far. 
8:58 PM2 years ago


Pulisic tries chipping over Ochoa but the Mexican's goalie experience helps him to get the ball. 
8:57 PM2 years ago


Good shot from Jonathan Dos Santos. Outside the box but still close from the goal.
8:56 PM2 years ago
Some pictures of the first half in Chicago.
8:55 PM2 years ago


Not many players like Pulisic in the world. The best footballer at the Soldier Field tonight. 
8:51 PM2 years ago
This was the play that made Gerardo Martino go off on the bench. Everyone from the Mexican squad that didn't start is warming up on the sidelines. 
8:48 PM2 years ago


Aside from that good play from Pizarro, Mexico hasn't created chances at all. 
8:46 PM2 years ago


A little bit of confusion between Moreno and Ochoa, and Arriola was close from scoring the first goal of the night. Another clear chance for the Americans. 
8:46 PM2 years ago


Mexico is taking too long to interpret the game. Pulisic is the man to go to from the USA and the defenders still can't contain him.
8:44 PM2 years ago
Pulisic's early miss in the game.
8:41 PM2 years ago


Pizarro tries a bicycle kick but isn't able to contact the ball properly.
8:38 PM2 years ago


Things starting to get chippy at the Soldier Field. Altidore going at 'Chaka' after a hard foul from the defender.
8:31 PM2 years ago


Good play by Pizarro who sends a cross to Guardado but the midfielder isn't able to get a good touch on it. 
8:30 PM2 years ago


Far from their best level Rodriguez. Had a good tournament in Mexico last semester but hasn't been able to find his game. 
8:28 PM2 years ago


Mexico seems to struggle in the midfield.
8:27 PM2 years ago


In the first minutes of this Gold Cup Final, the US is deserving to get the win. Already two good chances by Pulisic and Altidore but they couldn't get on the board. 
8:23 PM2 years ago


Unreal miss by Altidore. The striker had the clearest chance on a one-on-one play with Ochoa and he misshits it with the left foot. 
8:21 PM2 years ago


Incredible run by Pulisic but Ochoa makes a good save and keeps the match tied at zeros.
8:20 PM2 years ago


First five minutes and still no clear chances for any of both teams.
8:16 PM2 years ago


We are underway here at Chicago for the Mexico vs USA Gold Cup Final!

7 Mexico

6 USA

5:39 PM2 years ago

Martino thinks this about USA's coch

"First, I have a great respect for Gregg Berhalter, the person and for the coach. I think he is one of the best coaches that I have faced in MLS and obviously the football that he practices needs time and is what he had in friendly matches, I think that that tuning and that knowledge of what the coach wants, on the part of its players, it begins to be seen now in the Gold Cup with the matches that have already passed and even with the passage of time they are still going to do it better, it is not easy the way that Gregg proposes that his teams play that only in a handful of matches can be seen in its full dimension."
5:18 PM2 years ago
What does it mean to play for Mexico? El Tri stars answer that question in this great video.
4:53 PM2 years ago
"It's an even final, with possibilities for both sides, I imagine a game of much more shared protagonism. America proposes a football of attack, of tenure, of protagonism and undoubtedly we're going to have to face a different game from those we've played so far."
4:52 PM2 years ago

Martino speaks

Prior to the practice, Gerardo Martino spoke at a press conference, where he addressed topics such as tomorrow's game vs USMNT and what will happen with the team he leads.

House will be full

3:52 AM2 years ago

Factor Tata

Gerardo Martino, the new coach of el Tri, will want to continue with his unbeaten streak, assuring that Mexico is on the right track, because they are in the final for a reason, so it is planned to play the same offensive way to previous games.
3:51 AM2 years ago

Player to watch: USA

Chelsea's Christian Pulisic, who has become one of the young promises for the US national team, will need to provide his starting eleven with an additional spark that can lead them to the title. USMNT are also in a period of adaptation to their new coach.
