Gold Cup: USA to meet Canada in the semi-finals

The USA football team won 2-1 against Panama in the Gold-Cup quarterfinal on Saturday.

Gold Cup: USA to meet Canada in the semi-finals After gaining a two-goal lead, the US team seemed to struggle to keep the advantage, despite gaining a man advantage. Landon Donovan (58') with a penalty kick and Carlos Bocanegra (62')scored within a few minutes from each other to give the US team the lead.

 Third was hard to accomplish after the Americans went defensive and gave away a late goal to Panama by Blas Perez, which indicated that the defence of the US football team needs some work before they meet Canada on Thursday in Chicago. The Canadian team advanced to the Gold Cup semi-finals with a 3-0 victory over Guatemala on Saturday.

 On Sunday, the 17th, are the other two games of the Gold Cup quarter finals. In the first game Mexico will meet Costa Rica at 2:00pm CT. The second game will be between the football internationals of Honduras and Guadeloupe at 5:00pm CT. Both games will be played in Houston. Note, flood warnings have been issued for most of the state of Texas due to severe thunderstorms.

 The odds offered by the U.K. online sportsbook Bet365 (new window) favour Mexico in the first quarter final game at 1.60 (3/5), odds on draw are 3.60 (13/5) and Costa Rica win will pay out at 6.00 (5/1).
