  1. I’m having trouble finding this info- but the USMNT definitely play in philly for the quarterfinals right?

    • Old Soccer Coach says:

      Concacaf website, under gold cup, the schedule & results, and finally quarterfinals:
      .
      Sunday, June 30, either 5:00 pm or 8:30 pm, actual matches still TBD.

    • American Outlaws sent an email this morning saying they would and started selling tickets for the Linc. $50 + service fee. Just bought 5 in section 129

  2. Sinclair not taking that penalty… Canada’s WNT need a retooling.

  3. Andy Muenz says:

    Don’t forget Bermuda getting their first Gold Cup win last night against Nicaragua.
    .
    Colombia-Chile is the quarterfinal I’m looking forward to. 2 time defending champions against the only team that went 3-0 in the group stage.

  4. John P. O'Donnell Jr. says:

    The Haiti game was so fun to watch with the fans going crazy after the win. I seems like USL is well represented with CONCACAF players in this tournament.
    .
    It’s a shame that the federation doesn’t put some funding into these smaller countries building some infrastructure for their teams. Imagine a new stadium or two in each country and letting them co-host a tournament in the future.
