Both on and off the pitch, this summer's Gold Cup was mired in criticism and it ended in forgettable fashion as the United States lost the 3rd place consolation match to Panama, 1-1 (2-3 penalties).
After failing to reach the finals of this tournament for the first time in six attempts, the United States added another unwanted stat to this summer's nightmare by losing consecutive Gold Cup matches for the first time. They once again dominated the stat sheet as they did against Jamaica, and Brad Guzan bounced back in a big way, playing error-free and coming up with a couple of quality stops, but it wasn't meant to be. Now, after players speaking out about how poorly CONCACAF have managed the tournament, questions are being raised about the future of Jurgen Klinsmann. About the only memorable sight from today, outside of Clint Dempsey's goal, set up by DeAndre Yedlin, was the final appearance by DaMarcus Beasley with the Stars and Stripes. Jul 25 - 7:39 PM
