MNT Jul 13, 2013
- With the victory, the United States has tied the longest winning streak in team history with seven in a row. The previous mark was set from June 2-24, 2007, beginning with a 4-1 win against China that led to six straight wins in the 2007 Gold Cup and a championship title.
- Wondolowski now has five goals from two games in the tournament, and is the only U.S. player in history to score that many in a single Gold Cup. He is the second U.S. striker to score in three straight games this year, along with Jozy Altidore.
- Oguchi Onyewu captained the team for the second time in his career. The first came Oct. 12, 2010, in the 0-0 draw against Colombia in Chester, Pa.
- In that same game, Stuart Holden made his last start for the National Team prior to today.
- For the first time ever, the MNT starting lineup featured three players from the same club in Liga MX as Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Herculez Gomez all play for Club Tijuana. The U.S. also started three players from host Real Salt Lake: Tony Beltran, Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando.
- Beltran, Castillo and Gomez earned their first Gold Cup caps.
- Landon Donovan increased his team record of Gold Cup appearances to 30 all-time.
