U.S. MNT Ready for Quarterfinal Faceoff Against El Salvador

2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup
U.S. Men’s National Team vs. El Salvador
M&T Bank Stadium – Baltimore, Md.
July 21, 2013

KNOCKOUT PHASE KICKS OFF WITH USA-EL SALVADOR QUARTERFINAL IN BALTIMORE: The USA’s quest for its fifth Gold Cup title kicks off in earnest when the knockout phase begins with a quarterfinal matchup against El Salvador in Baltimore. Coverage from sold-out M&T Bank Stadium begins at 3:30 p.m ET on FOX and Univision ( Watch at Official U.S. Soccer Bars) Fans can follow the match live on’s MatchTracker and via Twitter @ussoccer.

The U.S. entered the quarterfinal by virtue of winning Group C. El Salvador advanced as the second place team from Group B. In the second part of the doubleheader, Honduras faces Costa Rica. The winner of these two matches will meet in the semifinal in Dallas on July 24.


  • The 1-0 victory against Costa Rica on July 16 gave the USA eight wins in a row, setting an all-time record for consecutive wins for the U.S. Men’s National Team.
  • The win also extended the USA’s record in the group phase to 28-1-2 all-time. The MNT improved its record this year to 9-2-2, and 8-1-1 in U.S.-hosted games in 2013.
  • In the history of the Gold Cup, the U.S. team has only lost once in a quarterfinal (2000).
  • Chris Wondolowski leads the tournament in scoring with five goals. That is also the most any U.S. player has scored in a single Gold Cup.
  • With his game-winner, Brek Shea became the seventh player on this U.S. roster to score his first international goal in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Shea joins Corona as the second player to score his debut goal in the 2013 edition of the regional championship.
  • With the World Cup less than a year away, the mix of veterans and younger players are hoping the Gold Cup will prove to be a launching point for a spot in World Cup Qualifying and ultimately Brazil in 2014. ( From Gold Cup to World Cup?)

TRADING PLACES: U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann made four changes to the 23-player 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup roster. Per tournament regulations, teams had the opportunity to make up to four changes to the roster in the 24 hours following the completion of the group phase.

Matt Besler, Omar Gonzalez, Alan Gordon and Eddie Johnson have all been added to the U.S. roster. Besler, Gordon and Johnson reported to Baltimore on Thursday.

Two changes come as the result of injury concerns. Oguchi Onyewu suffered an ankle sprain during the USA’s 4-1 win against Belize on July 13 in Sandy, Utah. Herculez Gomez continues to feel the effects of a knee issue and will head to Club Tijuana to prepare for the upcoming season.

Also gone are Houston Dynamo defender and 2013 MLS All-Star Corey Ashe, and Jack McInerney, the 20-year-old Philadelphia Union forward who made his debut in a National Team camp.

BEASLEY NAMED GOLD CUP CAPTAIN: Klinsmann named three-time World Cup veteran DaMarcus Beasley as the U.S. captain for the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Beasley has enjoyed a resurgence with the National Team after receiving his first call-up in seven months when he was added to the roster for the World Cup Qualifiers in March against Costa Rica and Mexico. Beasley had previously one the captain’s armband only once, in the USA’s 2-1 loss to Trinidad & Tobago on Oct. 15, 2008, in Port-of-Spain.

*2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifying
^2014 CONCACAF Gold Cup


  • With the win, the United States upped its record to 13-12-6 all-time against Costa Rica while ending the Ticos’ shutout streak at 785 minutes. The previous time Costa Rica allowed a goal was Clint Dempsey’s strike on March 22, 2013, during the FIFA World Cup Qualifying match in a snowy Commerce City, Colorado.
  • The match marked the first start in official competition for Sean Johnson, who now has three caps. Johnson started in the 0-0 draw against Canada on January 29 in Houston earlier this year.
  • Midfielder Alejandro Bedoya got his first start in the 2013 Gold Cup. He played in five matches in the 2011 edition, including all three games in the knockout phase. Bedoya scored his first international goal in the USA’s 6-0 win against Guatemala on July 5 in San Diego.


  • The U.S. owns an overwhelming 15-1-5 advantage in the lifetime series dating back to 1977. The U.S. has scored 47 goals and posted 11 shutouts.
  • The teams have met four times in the Gold Cup (1996, 2002, 2003, 2007), the United States winning all the matches by shutout.
  • Only one of the four meetings came in the knockout phase. Brian McBride posted a hat trick as the U.S. won 4-0 in the quarterfinal en route to the 2002 title.
  • In the 2007 edition, DaMarcus Beasley scored a pair and Landon Donovan and Taylor Twellman added one each in the 4-0 win on June 12 in Foxborough, Mass.
  • Nick Rimando earned his first cap for the National Team in the USA’s 2-0 win against El Salvador on Nov. 17, 2002, in Washington, D.C.
  • He also started in the last match between the teams, a 2-1 on Feb. 24, 2010, in Tampa. Kyle Beckerman and Clarence Goodson also joined the first XI that day.
  • A total of eight players on the roster have at least one cap against El Salvador. Donovan leads all with seven appearances, and both he and Beasley have two goals apiece.
  • Donovan wore the captain’s armband for the first time when he led the team in the 2-0 win in World Cup qualifying on Oct. 9, 2004, at Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador.
  • Eddie Johnson got his first cap and first goal that day.


  • Brek Shea replaced the injured Joshua Gatt (knee) on the final 23-man roster.
  • Eight players on the roster have previous experience in the Gold Cup, and four are former champions: DaMarcus Beasley (2002, 2005, 2007), Landon Donovan (2002, 2005, 2007), Oguchi Onyewu (2005, 2007) and Michael Parkhurst (2007).
  • Donovan is the USA’s all-time leader in appearances (31) and goals (15) in the Gold Cup.
  • Donovan scored his 50th and 51st career international goals when the U.S. Men's National Team defeated Guatemala 6-0 on July 5 in San Diego.
  • Chris Wondolowski and Alejandro Bedoya each notched their first international goals that day, “Wondo” finishing a loose ball intended for Stuart Holden while Bedoya got on the end of a cross across the box by Shea.
  • Joe Corona made his first start for the senior team in that game.
  • It was the USA's most lopsided win since an 8-0 victory against Barbados on June 15, 2008.
  • Against Belize, Donovan became the first MNT player to record 50 career goals and 50 assists when he recorded an assist on Stuart Holden's goal in the second half. The midfielder notched another assist on Michael Orozco’s header goal later in the half and also converted a penalty kick for his 52nd career goal.
  • Six USA players made their Gold Cup debuts that day: Nick Rimando, Orozco Fiscal, Corona, Diskerud, Jose Torres and second-half substitution Shea.
  • With his start, the Norwegian-born Mix Diskerud is now officially tied to the United States for his international career.
  • With his goal against Cuba, Corona became the sixth U.S. player on this roster to score his first goal with the National Team in a Gold Cup game. Beckerman tallied the tying goal in the 2-1 win in extra time against Panama in the 2009 Gold Cup quarterfinal . Clarence Goodson one-upped him in the next game, scoring the game-winner against Honduras in the 2-0 win on June 23 in Chicago . Onyewu also made his first count, scoring in second-half stoppage time to deliver the U.S. a dramatic 2-1 victory in the 2005 semifinal.
  • The others: Beasley potted the game-winner in stoppage time of the opener of the 2002 Gold Cup on Jan. 29, 2002, against Korea Republic, and Holden in the 4-0 win on July 4, 2009, against Grenada.
  • Coincidentally, the goals by Beasley and Onyewu came in the 92nd minute.
  • A total of 12 players were part of a portion, or all, of the past MNT camp that saw the U.S. collect four straight victories and earn nine points in World Cup Qualifying: Beasley, Beckerman, Edgar Castillo, Corona, Gomez, Goodson, Bill Hamid, Stuart Holden, Sean Johnson, Parkhurst, Rimando and Shea.
  • Six players on the original roster play professionally in Mexico, the most ever on a U.S. squad: Beasley, Castillo, Corona, Gomez, Orozco Fiscal and Torres. Castillo and Corona have been joined by Gomez this offseason at Club Tijuana, while Beasley and Orozco are paired at Puebla.
  • With the departure of Gomez, Real Salt Lake is the only team with three players on the USA’s Gold Cup roster: Beckerman, Tony Beltran and Rimando. (Watch Three Cheers for Nick Rimando)
  • Beasley started four straight matches at left back in May and June – including the 4-3 win against Germany and consecutive victories in qualifying against Jamaica and Panama – before missing the Honduras match through a card accumulation suspension. With his start against Belgium on May 29, he became the 13th player in MNT history to earn 100 caps. (Watch Beasley tribute)
  • Castillo and Corona had another historic run with Club Tijuana, this time in the 2013 Copa Libertadores where they advanced to the quarterfinals before falling to top-seed Atletico Mineiro based on away goals.
  • Holden returned to the U.S. fold for the first time since October of 2010 and played in two matches, including as a reserve in the 2-0 win against Panama on June 11 in Seattle. (Watch as Holden discussed his return to the MNT)
  • Bedoya has recorded five goals and four assists in 11 league games this year for Helsinborg. After being a late addition to the roster for the 2011 Gold Cup, he had a breakout performance, starting in four matches including all three in the knockout phase.
  • San Jose forward Wondolowski tied Roy Lassiter’s MLS single-season goals record in 2012 with 27 total. Wondolowski collected both the MLS Golden Boot and MVP award and was named MLS Player of the Month four times.


  • In the first meeting between the USA and Belize, Wondolowski became the third U.S. player to tally a hat trick in a Gold Cup match, joining Brian McBride and Landon Donovan. It also marked the 15th time a MNT player has notched three or more goals in a game.
  • Landon Donovan is the only U.S. MNT player in history to record 50 goals and 50 assists. He is currently on 53 goals and 52 assists.
  • Three players on the current roster are part of the inaugural U-17 Residency Program class in 1999: Beasley, Beckerman, and Donovan.
  • With the win against Germany on June 2, the U.S. is now 2-1-1 under Klinsmann against teams ranked in the top 10 in the world.
  • The first ever victory in Jamaica in World Cup Qualifying added to the list of firsts during Klinsmann’s tenure that include the win against four-time World Cup champion Italy and the road win against Mexico at Estadio Azteca.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup is the Confederation Championship encompassing the region of North America, Central America and the Caribbean. With 35 member nations, a total of 12 teams reach the Gold Cup tournament. Five teams advance through the qualification tournament in Central America (the Copa Centroamericana), while four qualify from the Caribbean championship (the Digicel Cup). The three teams from North America – Canada, Mexico and the United States – receive automatic entry.

The Gold Cup consists of two phases: the group phase and the knockout phase. In the group phase, there are three groups of four teams each. The top two teams in each group advance to the knockout phase, along with the two best third-place teams. The knockout phase begins with quarterfinals and is single elimination. In the knockout phase, if teams are tied at the end of regulation they will play two 15-minute overtime periods. If there is no winner, the match will be decided by penalty kicks.

The winner of the 2013 Gold Cup will qualify for a playoff against the winner of the 2015 tournament to determine the CONCACAF entrant in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.
