I feel Bad for Canada as they were Robbed in the 93rd Minute with the phantom offsides call they were the best team in the event and would have been nice to see them win the event and go on and play in the Confederations Cup in 2009, Mexico hasn't scored a goal vs the U.S in U.S soil in really long time U.S.A will win and get the CC cup invition
US and Mexico set marquis final

The USA had to suffer for their spot in the all-heavyweight final with archrivals Mexico by enduring a spirited brawl with an energetic Canadian outfit. In the end, two goals from Frankie Hejduk and Landon Donovan were enough to seal a 2-1 win, but the effects of the clash will linger as the Americans now go into the ultimate match without two crucial players. Mighty Mexico also had some sweating to do in their semi-final as little Guadeloupe battled bravely before eventually succumbing to a 1-0 loss, this thanks to a Pavel Pardo stunner midway through the second half.


Spirited Canucks stretch the States
After being pegged back in the early going by the searching play of Julian De Guzman and Dwayne De Rosario, the Americans looked to have bounced back to kill off the game thanks to two goals in five minutes late in the first half. Workhorse Frankie Hejduk proved an unlikely hero when he struck first with a brilliant hit from the edge of the box in 39 minutes and then Landon Donovan grabbed his third goal of the finals and his 33rd in an American jersey from the spot after Canadian keeper Pat Onstad hauled down Damarcus Beasley in the 44th minute
The second period proved another story entirely as the enterprising Canucks dug deep and fought hard. With a quarter-hour to go, substitute and former youth hero Iain Hume of Leicester City cut inside Carlos Bocanegra to fire home with his left foot from 18 yards out. And in the dying seconds of stoppage time it looked as if FC Copenhagen midfielder Atiba Hutchinson had claimed an equaliser, only for the strike to be ruled out by Mexican referee Benito Archundia.
After a battle of a semi, the USA will have to contest the final without goal-hero Hejduk (who picked up his second yellow of the knockout stages). Head coach Bob Bradley's son Michael will also be out of the ultimate match after cynically scything down De Guzman in the dying moments.

Guadeloupe push Mexico all the way
Mexico - prohibitive favourites up against Cinderella side Guadeloupe - predictably asked most of the early questions in the second semi-final from Soldier Field. But thanks to an impressive display of goalkeeping by FC Utrecht's Franck Grandel, the Caribbean islanders were able to make it to halftime with the scoreline tied at nil-all and with hopes still alive of pulling off the biggest in a string of recent upsets.
As the second period progressed and the predominantly pro-Mexican crowd began to grow more impatient with their heroes, it was captain and leader Pavel Pardo who finally broke the deadlock and little Guadeloupe's formidable spirit. In a fitting nod to the strength of the debutants' resistance, it took a 30-yard arrow to the top corner in minute 69 from the Stuttgart back to bulge Grandel's net and see the fancied Mexicans into Sunday's final.

The 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup concludes on Sunday 24 June with the hosts and holders USA taking on four-time champions Mexico at Soldier Field in Chicago.

No reason to laugh bro. Brazil is fielding mostly 'local' players with pretty much ALL the big names busy playing the Europe. Mexico loses to USA regularly, shows how good they truly are. :)
I wanted to see a real tournament. Atleast the Argentinians have most of their main players. The 4-1 win over USA was just the start.

Brazil 0-2 Mexico

Brazil: Doni; Maicon (Daniel Alves), Alex, Juan and Gilberto; Gilberto Silva, Mineiro, Elano (Afonso) and Diego (Anderson); Robinho and Vágner Love. Coach: Dunga

If countries like Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, etc had the spectacular facilities that countries like USA have, they would be an awesome team. Many of their players are emerging for the rural level with little or no formal training, and they manage to do well in an international arena. With proper training, they will be making great strides.

Ecuador dominated most of the game but Mexico was better at finishing, Mexico won 2-1.

It'll be interesting to see how the US does tonight against Paraguay, 5-0 winners over Columbia in the first match. Argentina takes on Columbia in the other one (I think).

I only got to see the first half. Brazil has good finishing but their keeper kept them in the game with some impressive saves on the other end. The Uruguans really pressed and tested the Brazilian defense (which looked fragile at times).

Surprised to see MexicanTs in the semi's. More surprised by the way they got there after loosing to USA in the gold cup final. They were struggling against USA in that match. Got lucky in the qtr's when the Paraguay keeper was red carded in the 3rd minute. Anywho, Argentina has been the best so far. Tonight's match should be a firecracker if the MexicanTs can keep up.

Brazil all the way, Robinho maybe the real "new" Pele, as Messi is certainly the real "new" Maradona. It's too early to tell, but I think Messi, now that he has done a "mano de dios" of his own, will soon surpass Diego on the field. Diving more may help. Off the field, he and most other FIFA registered soccer players already have.

Eita holo realistic fan. :-| Or did your support for our cricket team extend to having believed that they would win the Tests 3-0 against Sri Lanka? The "money... on Argentina" is a figure of speech -- I don't place wagers on sporting events. Frankly, while I support Brazil wholeheartedly and would love to see them win, I believe the odds favour Argentina in the Copa. Robinho is very good indeed, but the attacks have not "flowed" very well, the defence is nowhere near as solid as it used to be when Dunga actually led the team as Captain, and Gilberto Silva will miss the match because of two yellows.

I dunno man. Its hard for a hardcore Brazil fan like me to dis the celecaos, but this Dunga, himself the most un-Brazilian player, is molding the team into his own image. I know Kaka, Ronnie and co are not playing, but the choice of players that Dunga prefers are making me cringe in agony. He plays three defensive midfielders at the same time ! Gilberto Silva, Baptista, Mineiro plays while Diego, Elano sits ( not that they belong to kaka's class ). His forward is this Wagner Love. He plays in Russian league! Hard to beleive, but true ! I mean is there such a scarcity of players that a forward from Russian League is the first choice? He works hard. Thats it. Has no skills..

I am watchin the COPA and I have news for Brazil fans : This Argentine team will destroy this Brazil team and any future Brazil team with Dunga as the coach, even with the stars.

Messi goal against Mexico tonight is audacious and at the moment Riqueleme is palying like Zidane of 2000. Then you got Tevez ( Man U needs you ) to deal with..total game breakers..

Argentina could have gone 5/6-0 against Mexico but probably opted to conserve energy for the Brazil finale. I am a Brazil fan but can't get behind the 'new' Brazil. Couple of great individual players (Robinho better then Ronnie?) isn't enough to beat Argentina, specially the way they are playing currently.

It was hilarious to see Messi getting the yellow card for diving in the penalty area. This is why ARgentina suffers outside of South America. Referres are harsher on divers outside of his own continent. The boys got talent but the third world mentality tarnishes his image. That's what got Maradona into the kind of trouble he gets into even off the field. Still, Messi isn't as bad as the Portugese ones (Ronaldo specially).

whatever!! I have seen too much of soccer before I can accept any of you guys analogy of Argentina would destroy the current Brazilian team.

There were many instances in the past that a team would eat another team alive yet on the field lost to the weaker team. Eskaton shobuj shongho debut against Brothers, lol. As a brazil fan many times I was on the wrong end of facing the sad results (better team lost).

Let the game begin.

If Argentina happens to lose, the event would be a complete failure. All the pressure is on them when you a field a team of Tevez, Crespo, Messi and Requlime your supposed to beat a Brazil without Kaka and Ronaldinho. Sunday is gonna be fun :D

From another forum
but I agree... Kaka and Dinho aint show up because they want Dunga fired too...

Since brazil is fielding a weak team, I thought the final will be a good contest!!! It turns put that Argentina has been beaten quite comprehensively... :)

Saw the second half, Brazil established strong dominance. Brazil really taught the course, congratz to this second string team.

Brazil played like a completely different team... highly defensive, completely shutting down anything Argentina tried...

It just makes it even funnier now.

Mexico makes Brazil look ordinary.
Argentina thrashes Mexico (and a lot of other teams).
Brazil barely makes it to the final and shuts out Argentina.

There is no justice. :hairpull:

Well, at least it's not as bad as 2004 when Argentina was just a few minutes away from the championship and just gave it away.

Wow..wow..Brazil..brazil..brazil..

What a masterful game the Brazilans played today. They gave no room to Riquelme or Messi. It was a suffocating collective defense from them. Baptista, Josue and co outshone the Veron, Roman midfield. Dani Alves just hammered the aging Argentine backline after he came on.. Game over..

From all the indications of the tournament, which I have been watching, it was no wonder that Argentina was the huge favorite. Brazil, minus their stars, limped through early stages, often playing Dunga's boring defense first approach, yet today they just dominated Argentina and the usual flair of Brazil was also back.

One thing about Brazil though something Argentina doesn't have : Its their ability to win finals of big cups. They win more than they lose in final games. Argentina suffer from huge letdowns all the time, despite playing beautiful stuff. This particular Argetina team is reminding me of the Brazil of Zico and Falcao of eighties. Lots of beautiful stuff but no cups..

Thank you. Argentina had a good team. But I don't think they were prepared for dunga's tactics (fouls, interruption of flow of the game). May be next time (if Brazil don't play)

I like Messi. Ah! You know already from the WC forum.

I didn't know there was a battle going on here. Just a bunch of people getting their expectations very high from one performance.

I'm an Italy supporter, BTW. But I support anyone against Brazil's "we don't care about defense" team, which apparently didn't show up for the copa final.
