Record crowd watches US soccer match in Nashville

With 48 hours to go before the kick-off of the Gold Cup at The Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, CONCACAF have announced another last-minute sponsorship sale with Toyota coming on board as the Official Motor Vehicle of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Dwyer got the US off to the ideal start in the second half after a disjointed opening 45 for the Americans.

Mexico is the most successful team in Gold Cup history with six titles, but the us has a chance to take that title this year.

Osorio was incensed when his team was not awarded a penalty against Portugal.

Former head coach Jurgen Klinsmann was removed from his job in November. Osorio was ordered to leave the touchline by the referee.

Let's be clear, giving up two against a non-FIFA side in their first major tournament is not good.

This year, nine stadiums will be used in the group stage with each stadium hosting two games from the same group on the same day.

Curacao will take on Jamaica in Group C play in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Sunday, July 9 at 4 p.m. The campaign will celebrate "the brave-hearted spirit of the vehicle and hardcore soccer aficionados, the campaign pays tribute to the heart, soul and sweat players pour into every moment they are on the field", said a CONCACAF press release.

But Bruce Arena's men couldn't make the lead stand up as Miguel Camargo answered for Panama to insure the two strongest teams in a group that also includes Martinique and Nicaragua shared the points.

When I was 16, I was sitting through Chemistry class, or playing video games.

After that, the slate gets much easier with games against Martinique on July 12 in Tampa and Nicaragua on July 15 in Cleveland.

There was a lot more action in the second half, but poor passing in the final third limited the Americans' chances, while Panama simply couldn't get its best looks on net. Former Chelsea man and French global, Florent Malouda, will play for French Guiana for this Gold Cup as he's eligible to play for Guiana despite having played 80 times for France because French Guiana are not an official Federation Internationale de Football Association member. The U.S. opens play Saturday against Panama in a Group B game in Nashville.

"I thought we didn't deal well with the pressure, especially in the midfield".

Jeff Carlisle covers MLS and the US national team for ESPN FC. While Arena expects to win the competition, it's more a showcase of MLS-talent with opportunities for first-time players (Roldan, Dwyer), fringe players (Jordan Morris, Joe Corona) and goalkeeper Brad Guzan, who hopes to establish himself as the No. 1 goalie option ahead of aging veteran Tim Howard. Arena achieved those results with his best team and, though his Gold Cup roster won't feature stars such as Michael Bradley or Christian Pulisic, an embarrassing semifinals loss in the 2015 Gold Cup sets up a redemption narrative for this year's squad.
