The American defender, Miles Robinso, headed the winner in extra time as the United States stunned the defending champions Mexico 1-0 on Sunday to wine their seventh CONCACAF Gold Cup title.
After a super performance by goalkeeper, Matt Turner, Robinson soared over Mexican defender, Edison Alvarez deep into extra time and headed past Alfredo Talavera to set off wild celebrations at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
“I am happy we got the win.
“Just awesome, crazy emotions. I knew if I could get open and get a half step then I could finish it,” Robinso said.
This was the American team’s first Gold Cup title since 2017, and avenged their defeat to Mexico in the 2019 final.
The upstart Americans finished undefeated in the tournament that was played in Las Vega this year.
