Dos Santos strike sees Mexico deny USA in 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup Final

On a cool evening at Soldier Field, the U.S. Men's National Team fell at the final hurdle to Jonathan dos Santos' 73rd-minute goal that gave Mexico a 1-0 win in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup Final.

U.S. head coach Gregg Berhalter sent out the same starting XI that guided the USA through the semifinal while handing the captain's armband to Weston McKennie for the first time in his career, upping the number of players to captain the U.S. in 2019 to an even 10.


USA beat Netherlands 2-0 to win 2019 Women's World Cup

A sellout crowd of 57,900 fans that thundered "USA" chants throughout the game turned up at Stade de Lyon to witness the U.S. Women's National Team claim its record fourth FIFA Women's World Cup title with a 2-0 triumph over 2017 UEFA Women's Euro champions the Netherlands.

Megan Rapinoe, who was awarded the Golden Ball as the tournament's best player and the Golden Boot as its top scorer with six goals and three assists in 428 minutes played, opened the scoring for the USA in the second half from the penalty spot. Rose Lavelle, who was awarded the Bronze Ball as the tournament's third best player, scored the USA's second goal of the Final as the USWNT wrote another amazing chapter in the women's soccer history books as the highest scoring team in Women's World Cup history with 26 goals scored. The victory makes the USA only the second nation to successfully defend a World Cup crown.


Rapinoe powers US into World Cup semis

Inside a packed and sweltering Parc des Princes, the U.S. team battled past 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup host France and into the tournament semifinals with a 2-1 victory in front of 45,595 fans. Megan Rapinoe scored both goals for the Americans, one in each half, as the USA withstood a late France surge to keep their World Cup title hopes on track. The crowd was one of the most electric in Women's World Cup history with the American fans coming out in droves to help push the USA to victory.

The U.S. Women became the only nation to advance to the semifinals of all eight Word Cups that have been contested. Rapinoe's two goals gave her five during the World Cup, tying her for most in the tournament with Alex Morgan.

Youthful USA hold strong France to 1-1 draw in International Friendly

A 44th-minute goal from Julian Green boosted USA to a 1-1 draw against world No. 7 France on Saturday night in Lyon. The USA took the field with a starting lineup that averaged just 22 years old, but held strong in difficult conditions to earn a result against one of the world's top teams. The goal and the result mark firsts for the United States in its all-time series vs. France, which now stands at 0-3-1.

Heading into a summer break, the USA has compiled a 2-1-3 record since last October, including a 1-1 draw on the road against then third-ranked Portugal. Tonight's starting XI included seven players who have made their senior team debut in that span, while a total of 17 players earned their first caps in that time frame, making the result all the more impressive when considering that France's team had seven starters who had won a Champions League title, domestic league title, Cup title, or combination thereof this season in England, France, Spain or Italy.
