USA to face tricky Panama in Gold Cup quarterfinals

Perez Gold CupThe USA-Mexico showdown at the Gold Cup will have to wait for later.

Mexico again struggled but held off Panama, 1-0, on Wednesday in Houston to finish second in Group C and avoid a date with the USA in the quarterfinals. Instead, it's Panama, one of the most dangerous teams in the tournament, that Bob Bradley's unbeaten Americans will meet in a difficult quarterfinal test.

Panama looked to be the better team for much of the game, but PSV defender Carlos Salcido's 58th-minute goal off a corner kick was enough to beat Panama, which finished third.

The Canaleros twice hit the woodwork on shots by Felipe Baloy and Ricardo Phillips, and their forwards, Jose Luis Garces and Blas Perez, were a handful for the nervous Mexican defense.

The game was costly for Panama, however, as Rolando Escobar and Ramon Torres were both ejected late in the game.

Earlier, Carlos Pavon struck four goals to give Honduras to a 5-0 win over Cuba and capture first place in Group C. Amado Guevara scored the fifth Honduran goal. The Catrachos finished tie with Mexico for first place with six points but won the tiebreaker by virtue of their 2-1 win over Mexico on Sunday.
