USA 2-4 Mexico in 2011 Gold Cup Final: Your Reaction

The United States men’s national team suffered a demoralizing 4-2 defeat at the hands of Mexico in the 2011 Gold Cup Final at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The US led in the first half 2-0 until Mexico’s Pablo Barrera pulled one back. Mexico went on to score three more goals. The last of which was a goal that even Lionel Messi would be proud of after Giovani Dos Santos scored a fantastic goal to seal the 4-2 win.

In a game which Mexico dominated, the United States weren’t helped by the first half injury to Steve Cherundolo who was replaced by Jonathan Bornstein. Bob Bradley had to shuffle around his players in the back to accommodate for Cherundolo’s exit.

While Freddy Adu put on a spirited performance for the United States and did well holding up the ball and creating chances, the rest of the United States team were outplayed — especially in midfield.

What’s your reaction to the 4-2 scoreline?
