It has been more than a month since the United States defeated Mexico 3-2 in extra time to claim their first title of the CONCACAF Nations League and their eighth overall in history. Mexico, on the other hand, willbe looking to avenge last month's epic clash with the USMNT.
The Gold Cup is the regional championship for CONCACAF, which is held every two years. Lifting the trophy gives status and regional dominance, much as it does at the European Championships and Copa America.
There will be 10 cities and 11 stadiums in the United States to host the 60th anniversary of the Gold Cup. As part of the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup Final on Sunday, August 1, 2021, at 9:00 PM (ET), the United States men's soccer team will meet the Tricolor for the seventh time in the history of the tournament.
When was the last time the United States won the Concacaf Gold Cup?
The USMNT will certainly aim to win the Gold Cup in 2021. Gregg Berhalter's side are the second-most successful team in the Gold Cup, having won six trophies since the event began, behind Mexico with eight victories.
The last time the United States won the Concacaf Gold Cup was when they emerged victorious over Jamaica 2-1 in 2017. In Santa Clara, California, US, the United States and Jamaica clashed at Levi's Stadium on July 26, 2017.
Thanks to Jozy Altidore, the US took the lead in the 49th minute, only to be shut down by Je-Vaughn Watson a minute later, as Jamaica equalized shortly after the start of the second half. Little did everyone know that Jordan Morris will strike for the USMNT in the dying minutes of the game, as they savaged a late 2-1 triumph to take home the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
