Matthew Hoppe had a breakout season with Schalke 04 during the 2020/21 campaign in his first year as a professional soccer player. The United States men’s national team striker bagged six goals in 22 Bundesliga games last season, but unfortunately he couldn’t help his team from getting relegated.
Mexico suffered against Canada, but were able to complete the job on Thursday night. The Mexican national team took the lead before the break with Orbelín Pineda scoring from the spot. In the second half, Tajon Buchanan came flying in from the left wing to put a low shot through a defender’s legs and into the far corner of the net to tie the game.
Héctor Herrera scored a late winning goal to give Mexico a 2-1 win against Canada in the semi-final of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign at the NRG Stadium. El Tri will face the United States men’s national team on Sunday in Las Vegas, Nevada in the final.
Sixteen sides started the month of July with hopes of lifting the CONCACAF Gold Cup trophy on 1 August - some more wishful thinking that others - as the biggest prize in North and Central American international soccer was laid on the line. Perennial favourites Mexico and the USA were seen as the sides to beat and it turned out that way, with both of the great rivals now set to meet in the showpiece final.
El Tri go into this weekend's clash with their sights on a ninth Gold Cup triumph. Mexico are the most successful team in the tournament's history, having won it eight times, followed by the United States with six titles. This will be the 16th edition of the tournament and it will be a special one, since Concacaf is also celebrating their 60th anniversary. The tournament has been played since 1963 but was reformatted in 1991 to the competition it is today.
Mexico and the United States will contest the XVI Gold Cup final in Las Vegas later this evening. Two nations who have more Gold Cup titles than anyone else - Mexico have lifted the trophy eight times and the USA not too far behind with six. Tonight’s contest won’t be the first time they have met in the final - the most recent meeting was in the last edition of the tournament in 2019 when El Tri pipped their rivals to the Cup thanks to Jonathan dos Santos’ fabulous second half winner.
Hello and welcome to the preview and play by play of United States vs Mexico, Concacaf Gold Cup Final game that will be played Sunday August 1st at Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada.
