US men fail to follow women, lose Gold Cup final to Mexico
CHICAGO (AP) - U.S. men failed to follow the example of American women, showing just how far they are from success. Jonathan Dos Santos scored in the 73rd minute, and Mexico beat the United States 1-0 Sunday night to win its record eighth title in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Despite missing their top three forwards, El Tri dominated possession against an American team playing its first tournament under new coach Gregg Berhalter. Mexico scored on a move started by Dos Santos, who plays in Major League Soccer for the LA Galaxy. Pizarro crossed in the penalty area where Ral Jimnez played a back-heel pass to Dos Santos, who had continued his run.
