MOST COMMENTED

The USA and Mexico have only met in the Gold Cup three times. The USA prevailed in their meeting in the semifinals of the first Gold Cup in 1991, and Mexico won in the final of the 1993 and 1998 Gold Cups. Here's a look at the three meetings ...

1991 SEMIFINALS
July 5 in Los Angeles
USA 2 Mexico 0. Goals: Doyle 48, Vermes 64.

Mexico -- Larios, Hernandez, Herrera, Ruiz, Esparza, Munoz, De la Torre (Espinoza, 57), Farfan, Galindo (Garcia, 83), Zaguinho, Hermosillo.
Referee: J.C. Ortiz (Costa Roca).
Att.: 41,103.

NOTABLE: Such was the embarrassment of the loss to the USA that Mexico coach Manuel Lapuente quit right after the game.
