USA 2 - 0 Canada

Closing the last group opening games of the Gold Cup was a marquee match up between border nations USA & Canada. The hype of a disallowed equalizer from their last meeting in 2007 Gold Cup Semi-final match didn't live up to the billing with a 2-0 concise win for the USA. It looked like a tale of two goalkeepers and the northerners could not match the quality. Goals were marked by Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey, who almost had a scorpion kick to add to the highlight reel. Next up in Group C, USA vs. Panama & Canada v. Guadeloupe in Tampa, FL on June 11th.
