U.S. MEN’S NATIONAL TEAM GAME NOTES
USA-PANAMA
JUNE 11, 2011
CONCACAF GOLD CUP – GROUP C

GAME TWO IN TAMPA: After a successful start to the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 2-0 win against Canada in Detroit, the U.S. headed south to Tampa, Fla., to prepare to face Panama on Saturday, June 11, at Raymond James Stadium. Group C’s first-place position is up for grabs as Panama was 3-2 winners against Guadeloupe in Tuesday’s other match and currently sits in second place behind the U.S. on goal differential. Kickoff is slated for 8 p.m. ET and the match will be broadcast live on FOX Soccer, TeleFutura, CONCACAF.com and univision.com. Fans can follow the action with updates from ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and on Twitter @ussoccer.

SIGHTS ON SECOND ROUND: The U.S.-Panama match is the second of a double header that begins with Canada facing Guadeloupe at 6 p.m. ET. If Canada gets at least one point in the match against Guadeloupe, then a U.S. win against Panama would secure a top-two finish in the group and assure the team of quarterfinal berth after two games.

QUICK HITS 

  • The U.S. is seeking its fifth Gold Cup title, with prior championships coming in 1991, 2002, 2005 and 2007. 
  • Winning the 2011 version of the confederation championship has a massive bonus attached to it – the right to play in the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil just one year prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. 
  • Landon Donovan tied Kasey Keller for first all-time with 23 Gold Cup appearances (a CONCACAF and U.S. record).

  • Agudelo is the first U.S. player to appear in a CONCACAF Gold Cup match prior to his 19th birthday, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Agudelo (18 years, 196 days) broke the mark held by DaMarcus Beasley in 2002 (19 years, 240 days). 
  • The U.S. has never lost a match in the group stage of the Gold Cup, winning 24 and tying twice in 26 matches. 
  • The U.S. has won all 11 of its Gold Cup openers, outscoring opponents 27-5 and posting seven shutouts. 
  • Saturday’s match in Detroit was the 50th for the U.S. in the Gold Cup, a CONCACAF record. The U.S. also has the CONCACAF record for wins, holding a 39-5-6 record. 
  • Agudelo is the only player to appear in all five games in 2011 and was credited with his first career assist against Canada. 
  • Ream leads the team with 360 minutes played. 
  • Ream and Altidore are the only players to have started four games in 2011. 
  • Updated stats, lineups and results are available on the U.S. Men’s National Team page on ussoccer.com.

THE PANAMA SERIES
FOURTH IN FOUR: The U.S. and Panama meet in the group stage of the 2011 Gold Cup after the U.S. knocked Panama out of each of the last three editions of the tournament. The consecutive meetings began in 2005 when the teams played to a scoreless draw in the final with the U.S. hoisting the trophy after a 3-1 victory in a penalty shootout. Subsequently, the U.S. defeated Panama 2-1 in the quarterfinals of each of the last two tournaments, the 2009 victory requiring overtime for a Kenny Cooper penalty kick to send the U.S. into the semifinals. The teams met one other time in the group stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, back in the second edition of the tournament when the U.S. won 2-1 on goals by National Soccer Hall of Famers Thomas Dooley and Eric Wynalda.

SERIES NOTES

  • The U.S. is 3-0-1 against Panama in the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the tie coming in the 2005 final with the U.S. prevailing 3-1 on penalty kicks. 
  • Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey and Oguchi Onyewu were part of the U.S. squad that day. Donovan took and converted the third penalty in the shootout. 
  • The four U.S. players in that shootout were: Santino Quaranta (goal), Chris Armas (save), Landon Donovan (goal) and Brad Davis (goal). Kasey Keller made one save in goal. 
  • Donovan and Carlos Bocanegra scored in the 2007 quarterfinal against Panama at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. 
  • Clarence Goodson and Robbie Rogers are the only members of the 2011 team that appeared in the 2009 quarterfinal victory in Philadelphia. 
  • The U.S. holds a 6-0-2 all-time record against Panama with 18 goals for and four goals against. 
  • All eight meetings between the two teams have come in either the Gold Cup or World Cup qualifying. 
  • In qualifying for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the teams met four times, playing home and away in both the semifinal and final rounds of qualifying. The U.S. won three times with one tie. 
  • Donovan scored twice against Panama in a 6-0 rout in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 13, 2004. 
  • On June 8, 2005, in Panama City, Donovan and Bocanegra scored in a 3-0 qualifying victory.

IN TAMPA
BAY AREA SUCCESS:
The U.S. Men’s National Team will be making its sixth appearance in Tampa dating back to a 1-1 tie with Switzerland in 1985. Overall the U.S. has a 3-1-1 record with wins against Finland (1990), Ecuador (2007) and El Salvador (2010). The 2007 matchup is the most memorable, with 31,547 on hand at Raymond James Stadium to see a magnificent hat trick by Landon Donovan in a 3-1 victory. Of the current Gold Cup roster, Sacha Kljestan has also scored with the full team on that field, getting the game-winner in second-half stoppage time against El Salvador on Feb. 24, 2010. Nick Rimando (not present for Saturday’s match), Clarence Goodson, Jonathan Bornstein and Robbie Rogers also played for the U.S. that day.

OLYMPIC QUALIFIERS: In 2008, Raymond James Stadium hosted the U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team for the group phase of CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying from March 11-15. The U.S. posted a 2-0-1 record against Cuba, Panama and Honduras. Three years later, four members of the Gold Cup team come to Tampa with experience in those games. Maurice Edu captained the team in the first two games, and Sacha Kljestan played in all three, captaining the U.S. in the third game. Freddy Adu started the first two games and scored twice, while Jozy Altidore also started the first two games.

DEMPSEY GETS IT DONE IN GAME ONE: U.S. midfielder Clint Dempsey has now scored one goal in each of the CONCACAF Gold Cup opening games in which he has played, also scoring in the 2005 and 2007 openers. The goal in the opener against Canada was the third of his Gold Cup career. One year ago, he scored in the opening match at the 2010 FIFA World Cup against England and prior to that also struck against Barbados in the first game of FIFA World Cup qualifying for the U.S. on June 15, 2008. Dempsey has scored in every major tournament in which he has appeared for the U.S., scoring in two World Cups (2006, 2010), three Gold Cups (2005, 2007, 2011) and the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. He has also scored in qualifying for both the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cups.

COMING TOGETHER: Three days after Bob Bradley’s roster announcement on May 23, the U.S. team began gathering for its pre-Gold Cup training camp in Cary, N.C., the site of pre-World Cup training camps in 2006 and 2010. On June 2, the team departed North Carolina for Foxborough, Mass., where the U.S. then trained once on June 3 before falling to FIFA World Cup champion Spain. Two and a half hours after the game, the U.S. was on a bus to the airport, touching down in Detroit just before midnight. Two training sessions in Detroit preceded the June 7 opening match, and on June 8 the reserves trained on the field while the starters from the Canada match had a gym session before an afternoon flight to Tampa.

FROM WORLD CUP TO GOLD CUP: After the conclusion of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, preparations were quickly underway for the U.S. to build toward this summer’s Gold Cup. In the eight games since the Round of 16 in South Africa, the U.S. played six teams that were part of the 2010 World Cup and three of the top four ranked teams in the world (Spain, 1; Argentina, 4; Brazil, 3). Here is a breakdown of the U.S. Gold Cup roster’s contribution during that eight-game span:

  • Maurice Edu is the only player to have started six games during that span. Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley and Jonathan Spector are the only other players on the roster who appeared in six games since the World Cup. 
  • Five players on the Gold Cup roster have earned their first cap since the World Cup: 
    • Juan Agudelo and Tim Ream earned their first caps in the final match of 2010, a 2-1 win in the Nelson Mandela Challenge on Nov. 17. in South Africa. 
    • Chris Wondolowski is the most recent debutant, appearing for the first time on Jan. 22, 2011, against Chile. 
    • Jermaine Jones made his long-awaited debut on Oct. 9, 2010, against Poland. 
    • Eric Lichaj debuted on Oct. 12, 2010, against Colombia. 
  • Only three players have played more than half the minutes for the U.S. since the World Cup: Bradley (495), Altidore (419) and Edu (405). Clint Dempsey has played 360 minutes, exactly half.

  • Clint Dempsey is one goal away from tying 2011 National Soccer Hall of Fame Inductee Bruce Murray (21) for the fifth-most goals scored in U.S. history. 
  • With his goal against Canada, Dempsey passed DaMarcus Beasley and Murray and moved into sixth all-time in points with 48, four behind Cobi Jones.

MORE GOLD CUP
NEW OPPONENT IN A NEW STADIUM:
In the final Group C match, Guadeloupe will be a new opponent for the United States, with the teams playing in LIVESTRONG Park in Kansas City, Kan., which will host its first match on June 9 when Sporting Kansas City welcomes the Chicago Fire. Five days later, the Gold Cup comes to town with the USA-Guadeloupe nightcap scheduled to kick off at 8 p.m. CT. The Gwada Boys are appearing in their third straight Gold Cup, having reached the semifinals in 2007 before falling to Mexico. Guadeloupe qualified for the 2011 event by reaching the finals of the Digicel Cup, where they lost to Jamaica in penalties after a 1-1 draw in regulation and extra time.

GROUP A - MEXICO'S FAST START; LAST-SECOND TICOS: More than 80,000 fans were on hand to see perennial CONCACAF powers Mexico and Costa Rica post 5-0 victories as Group A opened the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Sunday. Costa Rica thrashed Cuba to start the tournament before Javier Hernandez bagged Mexico's first hat trick in the Gold Cup since 1993 - a natural hat trick that included a stoppage time penalty kick - as El Salvador fell easily. In the group's second games on Thursday night, Costa Rica scored with nearly the last kick of the game to earn a vital tie with El Salvador, while Mexico's second consecutive 5-0 win mean they are the first team to qualify for the quarterfinals of the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

GROUP B - JAMAICA LEADS THE WAY: Jamaica came out of the gate strong with a 4-0 win against Grenada, while Honduras and Guatemala played to the first draw of the Gold Cup at The Home Depot Center.
