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.
USA -- Meola, Caligiuri, Balboa, Doyle, Clavijo (Armstrong, 83), Quinn, Henderson, Murray, Perez, Vermes, Wynalda (Eck, 71).
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.

1993 FINAL
July 25 in Mexico City
Mexico 4 USA 0. Goals: Ambriz 11, own goal 31, Zaguinho 69, Cantu 79.

USA -- Meola, Kooiman, Doyle, Armstrong, Lalas, Dooley, Wegerle (Moore 78), Harkes, Jones (Kinnear 52), Henderson, Wynalda.
Att.: 120,000

NOTABLE: No one was going to stop the Tri in 1993. They finished with a goalscoring margin of 28-2 after recording wins by 9-0, 8-0 and 6-1 earlier in the tournament.

1998 FINAL
Feb. 15 in Los Angeles
USA 0 Mexico 1. Goal: Hernandez 43.
