Gold Cup: USA advances to the final
The United States beat Canada, 4-2, on penalty kicks to advance to the Gold Cup final for the fourth time after their game ended in a 0-0 tie.
The Americans totally dominated the defending champions but they couldn't beat Canadian keeper Lars Hirschfeld.
Canada's luck finally ran out in the shootout when Kasey Keller saved shots by 21-year-old Kevin McKenna (first attempt) and 19-year-old Tam Nsaliwa (fourth).
Landon Donovan, Brian McBride, Jeff Agoos and Clint Mathis were perfect from the spot for the United States.
The United States meets Costa Rica, a 3-1 winner over South Korea in the other semifinal, in Saturday's final (kickoff: noon PT, 3 pm ET; TV: live, Univision).
