USA Gold Cup Schedule 2017

"It's frustrating. It's disappointing".

Last Saturday, the 65-year-old certainly liked what he saw in the 1-0 friendly win over Ghana as three players made their USA debuts and two (forward Dom Dwyer and midfielder Kellyn Acosta) scored their first worldwide goals. He just became eligible for the USMNT after earning United States citizenship in March of this year.

Here are some more positives in Arena's book - Dom Dwyer's goal, the only for the U.S. on the night and his second in two appearances for this country, earned a press conference hat-tip.

"I love playing with great players, and this is definitely a higher level than club football", Dwyer said. Deportivo La Coruña's Celso Borges is the country's most-capped player with 100.

"It didn't really quite happen the way we wanted but I saw glimpses of what I want from this team".

Panama put on immediate pressure and scored after Rowe was beating down the flank and Edgar Barcena crossed to Gabriel Torres.

"It just comes down to a lapse of concentration", Bedoya said.

Canada last won the Gold Cup in 2000 with Martin Nash of Victoria helping lead the way.

The U.S. entered 4-0-4 since Bruce Arena started his second stint as coach, replacing Jurgen Klinsmann in November. They weren't going to have a fine showing in this one against a quality team, and it was just the first game. Honduras and Costa Rica are favored to get out of the group, but the victor of French Guiana and Canada could qualify for the quarterfinals as a third-place team.

The coming off a disappointing fourth-place finish in the 2015 tournament.

"Sometimes young players feel somewhat intimidated by the older players in a group".

Dwyer, a native of England who changed his citizenship status ahead of next year's World Cup, scored in his debut with the USA national team in a friendly last weekend against Ghana.

The Yanks should have no problem topping Group B and making a return to the final for the first time since 2013. Drawing large crowds and millions of television viewers from across the region, the Gold Cup is a celebration of soccer, sportsmanship, and culture.

People tend to forget Straith is only 26, which he sees as an advantage.

Camargo's goal was his second for the national team. Panama would threaten once more on the stroke of halftime, as Ismael Diaz cut into the central channel from the left side and pulled a low shot inches wide of Guzan's right-hand post. But with a squad including Brad Guzan, Omar Gonzalez, and Jordan Morris, the team still includes both talent and experience. "They did a good job of frustrating us and (getting) balls in good areas for them and bad areas for us".

Still, Arena knows something about winning in the Gold Cup.

That all of Canada's great work was almost undone by a disastrous two minutes when it allowed French Guiana to get back into the game should not overshadow the many positives on this night.
