Countdown to Columbus: 2007 Gold Cup Final
Mexico entered the 2007 Gold Cup Final at Soldier Field determined to overcome the United States for the first time in eight years on american soil. Andres Guardado and Nery Castillio combined on a wonderful goal to give Mexico a 1-0 halftime lead. At that point in the match, Tim Howard’s clutch goalkeeping was keeping the US in the match.
In the second half a Landon Donovan penalty and a Benny Feilhaber strike from outside the area gave the US another victory over Mexico and the nation’s fourth Confederation title since 1991.
