The USA national team defeated the Mexican side 1-0 with all their might in the 2021 Gold Cup final match held in Las Vegas. The winner of the match won the trophy with the goal scored by defender Miles Robinson with 5 minutes left in extra time.
In the 117th minute of the match and what looked like a match for penalty shootouts, Robinson beat Mexico's Edson Alvarez in the middle of the Mexican penalty area with Kellyn Acosta as the winner of the match.
The Americans did pretty well in the other half. At the end of the last regulation, they formed a sufficiently balanced match. Arriola and Matthew Hoppe had the best chances for the USMNT towards the end of the 90 minutes, but both attempts were thwarted. That fatigue showed both teams, as extra time ran out with few real opportunities before Robinson came to a conclusion.
This was the seventh Gold Cup title for the USA, the first since 2017. Mexico has won this trophy feast eight times in total, and Canada was one of the only countries to win in 2000.
USA managed to finish off the team! There were so many problems with this squad and the Americans, it demoralized the Mexican team almost in full force. This is the second trophy the USA has won against Mexico in about two months. And the USMNT achieves this with courage, strong defense, hard work and appropriate goals.
