Default Gold Cup Final: United States vs Mexico, June 25th at The Rose Bowl

The Only Match that Matters in the CONCACAF Region, Trip to the Confederations Cup is on the line. El Tri leads the Overall Series 32–15–11, that record is a little bit skewed since the US has only managed 1 draw in 24 matches in Mexico. Mexico has only won once on US soil since 1999 and that was 09 Gold Cup Final where the US sent a B Team as the Main Teams focus was on WC qualifying and the Confederations Cup.

Rose Bowl Capacity is about 95,000, theres gonna be about 70,000 Mexicans and 25,000 United States Supporters in terms of crowd distribution but thats how it is in Southern California.

My Boy Freddy got a Game yesterday and added creativity to the US Side, allowed Dempsey to play up. Landy Cakes has come off the Bench the past 2 games but that should change for the Final.

Mexico has looked very good, +16 Goal Differential, Chicharito Hernandez leading the way with 6.

Prediction: Mexico peaked a little to early, US gets it right Saturday night and Wins 4-1. Timmy will make the big saves when needed.
12.6 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, OUT: What a delivery, completely fooled Sangakkara, first five delivery were the outswingers and now, this one comes in sharply, Sangakkara tries to left it and ball hits the off stump, top class bowling!
