CHICAGO (AP) _ Landon Donovan tied Eric Wynalda atop the career goals list with his 34th international marker and
the U-S came from behind to defeat Mexico 2-to-1 in the final of
the CONCACAF Gold Cup. The tournament decides the
championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean.
The victory gives the U-S a berth in the 2009 Confederations Cup
in South Africa. It also boosts their record against their
neighbors to the south to 9-2-and-1 since 2000, including 8-0-and-1
on U-S soil.
This is the fourth Gold Cup title for the Americans, tying them
with Mexico. It also keeps new coach Bob Bradley's unbeaten record
intact at 10-0-and-1. Bradley took over as interim coach after
Bruce Arena was let go following last year's World Cup, and was
given the job permanently on May 16th.
