Resumen de Goles:

USA – Carlos Castrillo (autogol), minuto 19: Michael Bradley mandó el balón desde el medio campo para DeAndre Yedlin quien se encontraba en la banda derecha. Yedlin avanzó con el balón hasta llegar al área chica y envió un cruce central donde buscaba a algún compañero. En vez de un estadounidense, el guatemalteco Carlos Castrillo recibió el pase y trató de cabecearlo fuera de peligro pero lo cabeceó al fondo de la net, dándole la ventaja a EE.UU. USA 1, GUA 0.  (VER GOL)

USA – Timmy Chandler (DeAndre Yedlin), minuto 58: Nuevamente en la banda derecha, DeAndre Yedlin controló el balón buscando a algún compañero cercano. Yedlin encontró a Timmy Chandler en la parte superior del área grande. Chandler no titubeó y en remató con potencia desde afuera del área, enviando un disparo de zurda hacia la esquina izquierda desde 20 yardas para anotar su primer gol con la selección estadounidense. USA 2, GUA 0. (VER GOL).

USA – Clint Dempsey (penal), minuto 72: El árbitro marcó al punto penal tras una falta de Carlos Castrillo contra Michael Bradley. Clint Dempsey se perfiló y con confianza mandó el balón adentro de la red para el tercero de la selección estadounidense y su segundo gol de año. USA 3, GUA 0. (VER GOL)

USA – Chris Wondolowski (Gyasi Zardes), minuto 86: Gyasi Zardes se llevó el balón hasta adentro del área chica por el lado izquierdo. Justo antes de que se le acabara el terreno de juego, Zardes vio a Chris Wondolowski en el medio y recortó el balón hacia él. Wondolowski no tuvo que hacer mucho más que terminar el pase con un toque leve que se encargaría de meter el balón en el arco.  USA 4, GUA 0. FINAL.

Atajadas Claves y Paradas Defensivas:

GUA – Paulo Motta, minuto 18: El árbitro marcó una falta dentro del área a favor de Estados Unidos y Jozy Altidore fue al área penal para cobrar el tiro. Paulo Motta sin embargo adivinó correctamente y se lanzó a su lado derecho para bloquear el disparo con la palma de la mano y enviar el balón hacia el tiro de esquina.

USA – Brad Guzan, minuto 33: En una de las oportunidades más claras para Guatemala, Carlos Mejía controló el balón en el lado izquierdo y se quitó a su defensa para mandar un centro a  Rubén Morales quien intentó rematar. Morales no pudo hacer nada ya que Brad Guzan reaccionó muy bien y salió justo antes del remate para bloquear el balón con su cuerpo.

GUA- Paulo Motta, minuto 45: Clint Dempsey se perfiló para cobrar un tiro libre justo afuera del área grande. El disparo de Dempsey fue casi perfecto, dirigiéndose exactamente hacia el medio del arco. Motta estaba alerta y brincó para agarrar el balón y evitar el gol.

GUA – Paulo Motta, minuto 57: Estados Unidos entró al área guatemalteca y el balón le llegó a los pies a Jozy Altidore quien se vio cara a cara con el arquero Paulo Motta. Altidore remató con una diagonal desde el lado derecho pero Motta respondió bien y salió para negarle el disparo al estadounidense.

MNT Completes Gold Cup Prep With 4-0 Win Against Guatemala

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (July, 3 2015) – The U.S. Men’s National team, behind a Guatemala own-goal and scores from Timmy Chandler, Clint Dempsey and Chris Wondolowski concluded its preparation for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 3-0 win in front of a Tennessee state record crowd of 44,835 at Nissan Field in Nashville.

Dempsey has made a habit of scoring against Guatemala. His penalty kick goal in the 73rd minute was his fifth against the Central American nation. Chandler’s goal was the first of his international career with the USA and Wondolowski has now reached doubled-digit goals in his U.S. career.

The stage is now set for MNT’s run in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where the team will look to defend its 2013 title.

Goal Scoring Rundown:

USA – Carlos Castrillo (own goal) 19th minute: Michael Bradley split two defenders with a through ball along the right side, which the speedy DeAndre Yedlin took toward the endline, where he sent in a cross. Castillo stooped to head the ball back to his ‘keeper, but put his clearance past a scrambling Paulo Motta and into the bottom right corner of the goal. USA 1, GUA 0 (SEE GOAL )

USA – Timmy Chandler (own goal) 58th minute: DeAndre Yedlin cut back in the wide right channel  and passed to Timmy Chandler, who was open in support. Chandler took a controlling dribble to his left and sent an absolute rocket into the lower left corner of the goal from 25 yards out. USA 2, GUA 0 ( SEE GOAL)

USA – Clint Dempsey (Penalty Kick) 73rd minute: Michael Bradley was fouled in the box to set the USA up with its second penalty of the game. Dempsey stepped up to take it and calmly chipped it in over the diving goalkeeper. USA 3, GUA 0 ( SEE GOAL)

USA – Chris Wondolowski (Gyasi Zardes) 86th minute: Gyasi Zardes fielded a Dempsey lob on the left side of the box and dribbled all the way down to the end line. As he approached the goal Motta came off his line, but Zardes tiptoed around him and tapped a right footed pass back to Wondolowski, who buried from close range. USA 4, GUA 0 ( SEE GOAL) FINAL

Key Saves and Defensive Stops:
USA – Brad Guzan, (save) 33rd minute: Guatemala’s Carlos Mejia sent in a dangerous cross in front of goal where Jairo Arreola was finishing his run. Guzan, sensing the danger, took a quick step and slid in front, denying he opportunity.

USA – Brad Guzan, (save) 39th minute: Guatemala earned a free kick on the right side. A high, looping cross found Wilson Lalin on the back post. Lalin sent a header back across the mouth of the goal, but Guzan was ready, smothering the shot and falling on it safely.

USA – Brad Guzan, (save) 46th minute: Guatemala broke away at the start of the second half with an early attack. A cross in from the right side bounced around and ended up at the feet of Carlos Ruiz, who quickly ripped a left-footed shot at goal. Guzan dove and brought down the shot for the save.

MNT Ready for Final Test in Nashville Ahead of Gold Cup

The U.S. MNT touch down in Nashville for some final preparation ahead of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

What to Watch for in Tonight's MNT friendly with Guatemala

New Tune in Nashville
Friday’s friendly against Guatemala marks the fourth time the U.S. Men’s National Team will play in the “Music City”. Though the team is just 1-2-0 all-time in Nashville, the city does hold a few memorable moments for a couple of the current crop of players.

Gold Cup captain Michael Bradley actually saw his name on a game-day roster for the first time here as a guest player with the side in their send-off friendlies prior to leaving for the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Bradley was an unused sub in the team’s 1-0 defeat to Morocco on May 23, 2006, before earning his first U.S. cap three days later in a 2-0 win vs. Venezuela in Cleveland, Ohio. He’s now just two away from joining the Century Club.

Of course, the biggest U.S. moment in Nashville came when then 19-year-old Jozy Altidore became the youngest player in MNT history to score a hat trick, bagging all three goals in the side’s 3-0 FIFA World Cup qualifying victory against Trinidad & Tobago.

Beyond the individual memories, every time the U.S. MNT has come to Nashville, the support has been strong and the crowds have grown larger. That’ll be no different on Friday night as more than 37,500 tickets have already been sold, smashing Nashville’s previous best attendance record of 29,059 on March 29, 2011 against Paraguay.

Bradley/Altidore/Dempsey Together Again
Jurgen Klinsmann has made no secret of the fact that his approach to the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup is to win now so the team can directly qualify for a place at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia. A big part of that is calling in an experienced roster that has an average of 30.5 caps, including the three most seasoned players on the roster: Jozy Altidore, Michael Bradley and Clint Dempsey.

Friday night will likely be the first time since February’s 2-0 win against Panama that the trio will appear together on the field after injuries and the birth of Clint Dempsey’s child kept it from happening more recently. Should all three appear against Guatemala, it would mark the 50th time the trio has played together with the National Team. 

Captains…Leaders on the Gold Cup Roster
While Klinsmann has international experience in his squad heading into the Gold Cup, he’s also got leadership, with four players on the roster captaining their club teams: Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto FC), Brad Evans (Seattle Sounders FC) and Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)

Guatemala Milestones
Current U.S. number one goalkeeper Brad Guzan received the first of his 30 international caps during the team’s 4-0 rout of Guatemala in a friendly on February 19, 2006.

It’s not quite déjà vu, but Friday’s falls almost two years to the day of midfielder Alejandro Bedoya’s first U.S. MNT goal, which also came in a Gold Cup warmup against Guatemala. With the U.S. already laying a 5-0 thumping on Los Chapines, Bedoya popped up with his first strike in the 88th minute to close the scoring at 5-0. 

Bedoya joined Jeff Agoos (June 13, 1988), Brian McBride (November 3, 1996) and Frankie Hejduk (December 21, 1996) as notable U.S. players that scored their first international goal against Guatemala.

Jurgen on the Friendly
The 2013 friendly win ran the U.S. MNT’s unbeaten streak against Guatemala to 20 matches, the team’s longest-ever unbeaten run against any nation. Despite having handily defeated Guatemala last time out, Klinsmann said the Central American side will provide a tough final test for his team Friday ahead of the Gold Cup.

“It’s definitely a different Guatemala [team] than we played two years ago. Two years ago we played them in San Diego and it was 6-0 -- they basically came off vacation -- they were not qualified for the Gold Cup. This is a different Guatemala team. This is a Guatemala team that wants to do well in this Gold Cup. We expect some difficulties, a tight game and a lot of work.

We have respect for their individual qualities. All Central American teams are technically different and can put you into some problems in a split second with a set piece or a counter break. They will also have respect for us. They see what we did over the last couple of years. That’s why I said a few weeks ago, we will face teams that will play extremely defensive-minded against us. [The team] has to find ways to solve it. They have to find ways to create chances and put them in the back of the net.”

Greg Garza added to U.S. Roster for 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup

CHICAGO (July 2, 2015) —  U.S. Men’s National Team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has added Greg Garza to the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup roster, following approval from CONCACAF after completing the application process. Garza replaces Houston Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis, who was ruled out with a knee injury.

Per tournament rules, pending CONCACAF approval a team may replace an injured player on the roster up to 24 hours prior to its first match. The player must come from the 35-man preliminary roster, which was due on June 5.

Garza played in the last five games of 2014, starting three. He has two starts in 2015, including one in the 2-0 win against Mexico on April 15 in San Antonio. The Atlas-based left back has been a part of every level of U.S. National Team programming, beginning with the U-14’s.

The U.S. team is training in Nashville ahead of its final tune-up before the start of the Gold Cup. Ticket sales have already surpassed 36,000 for the friendly against Guatemala on July 3 in Nashville (5:30 p.m. CT, FOX Sports 1, UniMás, Univision Deportes Network).

Tickets for U.S. WNT Match in Chattanooga Sold Out

CHICAGO (July 2, 2015) – Tickets for the U.S. Women’s National Team’s second post-Women’s World Cup game against Costa Rica have officially sold out.

The U.S. Women will play in front of over 20,000 fans at Finley Stadium on Wednesday, Aug. 19 in Chattanooga, Tennessee (6:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2), setting a WNT attendance record in the state.

Tickets for the match sold out in one day, making it the fourth sellout in the history of the 18-year-old stadium and the fastest selling event held at the venue. The USA has played at Finley Stadium before, but not since 1997, when it defeated Sweden, 3-1, at the home of the National Premier Soccer League’s Chattanooga FC and the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga Moccasins football and women’s soccer teams. The game against Sweden was the first soccer game held at Finley, drawing a crowd of 13,433 fans.

Three days prior to the match in Tennessee, the WNT will play Costa Rica in Pittsburgh, on Sunday, Aug. 16 at Heinz Field (1:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 1). Tickets are available and more than 23,000 have already been sold. (TICKETS)

The WNT’s match in Pittsburgh marks the team’s second visit to Heinz Field, home of the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers, after defeating Iceland there by a 3-0 score in 2004 following the USA’s Olympic gold medal run in Greece. The return to Pittsburgh will be a homecoming of sorts for U.S. defender Meghan Klingenberg, who hails from nearby Gibsonia. The USA has played 15 times previously in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

The USWNT will next contest the Final at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday, July 5, at 7 p.m. ET when it takes on reigning World Champion Japan in a rematch of the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup title match. The game will be broadcast live on FOX and Telemundo. Fans can also follow all the excitement on Twitter @ussoccer_wnt and @ussoccer_esp.
