The U.S. and Spain have met just four times previously, with Spain holding a 3-1-0 edge. The USAâ€™s lone victory is the most famous of the encounters coming in the semifinals of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. Facing a Spain team that had been on an international record setting run of 15 consecutive victories and a 35-game unbeaten streak, goals by Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey lifted the United States to a 2-0 victory and a place in their first final of a major FIFA tournament.
The U.S. is making its 12th appearance at Gillette Stadium, posting an impressive 9-1-2 record. Remarkably, 10 of the 12 matches have been either in the Gold Cup or World Cup qualifiers. The U.S. has tallied 28 goals and surrendered six in the facility, with eight shutouts.
The United States will seek its fifth confederation championship title when they join Group C of the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup along with Canada, Panama and Guadeloupe. The U.S. will first take on Canada on June 7 at 8 p.m. ET at Ford Field in Detroit. The team then travels south to face Panama on June 11 at 8 p.m. ET at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla., before rounding out group play against Guadeloupe on June 14 at the brand new LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, with kickoff slated for 8 p.m. CT.
