Mexico and United States finals
It’s been 8 years since the CONCACAF giants faced-off in a Gold Cup final.
We haven’t had a Gold cup final involving both Mexico and United States since 2011.
6 finals between the two sides with Mexico winning 5 of them.
2007 – the only time United States won a Gold Cup final against Mexico.
Outside Mexico and United States, who can win the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup?
Co-host and silver medals in the last two editions of the tournament should encourage Jamaica to dream of the possibility of being the 4th nation to win the CONCACAF.
