USA stun Mexico in extra time to win Gold Cup final!
The United States claimed their seventh CONCACAF Gold Cup title on Sunday night with a thrilling 1-0 extra time win over defending champion Mexico in Las Vegas.
Miles Robinson headed in the winner, soaring over Mexican defender Edison Alvarez deep into the extra time and bouncing it past goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera to set off a wild celebration at the Allegiant Stadium.
This was the American team’s first Gold Cup title since 2017, and avenged their defeat to Mexico in the 2019 final.
The USA has now defeated Mexico in back-to-back tournaments for the first time. They also beat Mexico in extra time in the CONCACAF Nations League final in early June.
The game was played in Las Vegas but it might as well have been Mexico City, with the flag-waving, sold-out crowd of over 60,000 a sea of Mexican supporters in green and red.
