For the first time since 2015, the United States will not be in the Gold Cup final as they fall on a penalty shootout to Panama after a 1-1 draw.
Forced to play through extra-time and a penalty shootout for the second consecutive time in just three days, tired legs took over as the game dragged on. Jesus Ferreira’s dramatic 105th minute goal equalized, cancelling out Ian Anderson’s go-ahead goal, but it wasn’t quite enough to get them through.
Utilizing a backup roster after the starters served their national team duty through the Nations League a few weeks prior, interim head coach BJ Callaghan saw his side put forth another sloppy performance. They got away with a sub-par showing in the quarterfinals against Canada, as Matt Turner bailed them out in the penalty shootout, but this time they would not escape.
In the penalty shootout, Matt Turner made one save on Christian Martinez, but Jesus Ferreira and Christian Roldan both saw their efforts stopped by Orlando Mosquera to see Panama through.
With the victory, Panama reached the final for the first time since 2005, and have a shot at winning the CONCACAF tournament for the first time in history.
