Mexico needed penalties to beat Costa Rica in the quarter-finals and were forced to play another 120 minutes in their 1-0 extra-time win over Haiti in the last four. The United States have enjoyed a simpler path into the final and will hope those extra minutes on the field take their toll on Mexico. Prior to the tournament, many fans would have predicted a United States-Mexico final, with the two teams now going head-to-head for the trophy for the sixth time. El Tri will be looking to extend their record of seven Gold Cups on Sunday.
However, victory for the United States would see them draw level in trophies won, and a 3-1 semi-final victory over Jamaica served as solid preparation in their bid to retain the title. At least one of these teams has featured in each of the past three Gold Cup finals, but ESPN FC’s Tom Marshall highlighted how history favours Mexico in head-to-head finals against the USA.
Chelsea fans will be excited to see winger Christian Pulisic impressing for the U.S. ahead of his arrival at Stamford Bridge, particularly after he netted a game-winning brace against the Reggae Boyz on Wednesday. The 2019 Gold Cup final is one that marks the latest chapter in the United States vs. Mexico rivalry. All the talk about how the power pendulum had shifted in CONCACAF was for naught, as the USMNT and Mexico advanced to the final to set a familiar feel.
