After Knocking Out USMNT, Panama Seeking to Pull Major Upset By Defeating Mexico in CONCACAF Gold Cup Final

The CONCACAF Gold Cup has been a joy to watch so far, with some teams defying the odds and advancing deep into the tournament’s knockout stages. The USMNT and Mexico were the favorites heading into the tournament, but after a lackluster performance by the USMNT against Jamaica, many doubted they could make it to the final.

The USMNT won two of their last three group stage matches to advance into the quarter-finals, where they beat Canada on penalties after a goalless draw. The upset came in the semi-finals when an underdog Panama defeated the USMNT in penalties.

Panama has finally managed to reach the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup for the first time in ten years. They will face a Mexico side that is trying to extend their record to nine trophies since the Gold Cup was first held in 1991.

Panama Eyeing to Win Their First CONCACAF Gold Cup by Defeating Mexico

Panama is one match away from winning their first CONCACAF Gold Cup, and the only team before them is a Mexico side that wants to extend their record to nine titles. Both teams have performed superbly in the competition so far. Panama are on a 5-match unbeaten run after their recent victory over the USMNT on penalties yesterday.

The finalist took seven points from a possible nine in their first three group stage matches, only dropping points against El Salvador in a 2-2 draw. Panama’s quarter-final match against Qatar was a complete rout. They put four goals past the Middle Easter nation while managing to keep their sheet clean.
