The USA and Mexico both won their groups within the CONCACAF Gold Cup on Sunday, scoring half goals that stood as game-winners and advancing to the knockout round of the tournament. Shaquell Moore scored one among the fastest goals in national team history because we captured B by holding on to beat Canada 1-0 and Luis Alfonso Rodriquez scored within the 26th minute as Mexico edged El Salvador by an equivalent score to say A.
Moore, in his first international goal, scored just 20 seconds into the competition and ‘keeper Matt Turner made three last-half saves in Kansas City because the USA finished 3-0 in group play, needing a victory to say top spot over runner-up Canada. Moore hammered a right-footed shot from close range to the center of the goal after taking a pass from Sebastian Lletget.In the 2014 World Cup, Clint Dempsey scored 30 seconds certain us against Ghana. The inexperienced American squad will play the runner-up from Group C within the quarter-finals while Canada, who needed just a tie to win the group, is set to face off against the Group C winner.
The clubs had split their last two games coming into Sunday’s match at Children’s Mercy Park in Kansas City, Kansas. Moore’s first-minute goal was all the USA would wish but Canada made the hosts work for the win, especially within the last half once they kept Turner busy. The Americans did not muster an attempt on goal against Canadian goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau within the last half. The Canadians, who had more corners three to at least one, were trying to win on US soil for the primary time since 1957.
Mexico came out on top during a back and forth and tightly contested match in Dallas to win the group with seven points from its three matches. El Salvador settled for runner-up with two wins and one loss for 6 points. Rodriguez scored by charging down the proper side, where he took a pass from teammate Hector Herrera then made a cut and launched a tough shot that deflected off another player before hitting the rear of the goal.
