The 2013 Gold Cup final match, United States Vs. Panama, will take place today at Soldier Field in Chicago.
The American team has put together a 10-match winning streak that they will hope to continue today against Panama. The United States is favored to win the Gold Cup but the team will be playing without their head coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
They are also going up against a surprising Panama team. Panama has been playing great in the Gold Cup especially on the defensive end. The Canaleros have held every team that they have played this tournament to less than two goals. Panama will have to keep up that defensive effort in order to upset the United States today.
On the other hand, the United States has been pretty explosive on the offensive end. Landon Donovan and the rest of the squad have put it in the back of the 19 times in the last five games.
Bleacher Report notes that the United States and Panama played in the final in 2005. The American team won that match in a shootout.
Panama coach said: “We’re going to go up against a rival with a great squad, but I think we have great possibilities of lifting the cup for the first time in history.”
