Davies Leads Canada to Gold Cup Win

He is the ninth player in United States national team history to score in each of his first two worldwide appearances.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup is the biennial global championship contested among nations from the North, Central American and Caribbean region. Sure, but the fact remains he has looked good in both of his national team appearances and he has done enough to merit more opportunities. "I think that's a real positive for CONCACAF".

"I thought Brad stood on his head for a while and saved us", Rowe said, "and kept us in that game for a long period of time". I'm really happy with where I'm at mentally and physically.

If you came away from the US national team's 1-1 draw against Panama in Saturday's Gold Cup opener wondering what happened to the team that showed so much promise against Ghana a week ago, don't worry.

Canada recorded an entertaining 4-2 win over French Guyana in the opening game of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Two dubious streaks came to an end for Canada on Friday night in New Jersey, as the Reds won for the first time in eight matches at the Gold Cup, their previous victory coming in 2011. The USA has won this tournament five teams, and is projected to easily pass through the group stage. "They have some of those players not here". Panama will certainly make life hard and have some very physical players in their side who can nullify the United States going forward. "They put a lot of pressure on the ball".

The 2017 Caribbean Champions will be making their Gold Cup debut this tournament. But the U.S.is not taking anything for granted.

"It is important to win your confederation championship", Arena said. Probably not. But it's realistic for us.

First-half goals from Dejan Jakovic and Scott Arfield, who both netted at senior global level for the first time, appeared to have Canada in control of the Group A clash at Red Bull Arena. "That's challenging. We're hopeful we can get some good results". Here are some suggestions on how to make the tournament better. Los Canaleros have yet to qualify for their first World Cup finals though, although they stand a decent chance of booking a ticket to Russian Federation.

Another player who elevated his standing with the USMNT was the man on the assist, New England winger Kelyn Rowe. Pretty much the whole roster, except the backup goalkeepers, are players with very legit chances to make the 2018 World Cup team. He started a February exhibition against Jamaica and performed particularly well Saturday in a 2-1 exhibition victory over Ghana, his seventh worldwide appearance.

McCarty was the player usually sitting deep, Acosta shuttled between attack and defense, while Corona played higher in a bid to provide support for lone striker Dom Dwyer.
