USA – Statistics & Current Form
As host and defending champion, the USA naturally went into the Gold Cup 2019 with high expectations. After only one draw from the last three preparatory matches, doubts about the strength of the Soccer Boys grew in the United States. Perhaps the men of national coach Gregg Berhalter, who took over the team in December 2018, are not candidates for the seventh Gold Cup victory?
With the beginning of the tournament, the host was in good shape. At the start, the USA won 4: 0 against Guyana and 6: 0 against Trinidad & Tobago. It was not until the last group game that the Soccer Boys took a calm approach with a 1-0 win against Panama. In the quarterfinals the team of Coach Berhalter then met on Curacao.
