Mexico's 'other' Dos Santos emerges to haunt U.S. in Gold Cup final

CHICAGO -- The image of Giovani dos Santos taunting Tim Howard with intricate control, coaxing the ball back out of his reach and then lifting the most delicate of lofted shots into the top corner in the 2011 Gold Cup final is etched onto the collective consciousness of Mexico fans.

That was the last time these two countries met in a Gold Cup final. Eight years on, and with Giovani not on Mexico's squad, it was brother Jonathan dos Santos' turn to steal the show and rob Mexico's bitter rival, the...

Pizarro leads the way in Mexico's Gold Cup triumph

Following a worrisome start to the Gold Cup final, Mexico surged back in an inspired second-half performance that carried them to their first championship under new manager Gerardo "Tata" Martino.

Mexico advance to Gold Cup final but impressive Haiti show they belong

Haiti's 2019 Gold Cup run gained them a lot of fans and earned them some real respect from their CONCACAF rivals.

GLENDALE, AZ -- Haiti defender Andrew Jean-Baptiste struggled at times to get his words out after his team fell 1-0 to Mexico after extra time on Tuesday. The 27-year-old New York native didn't stick in MLS and currently plays his club soccer in the Swedish third tier at Umea FC, but he had just managed to keep one of the Premier League's best strikers last season, Wolves' Raul Jimenez, quiet in a Gold Cup semifinal.

The former Portland Timbers centre-back's performance was remarkable, but his...

Raul Jimenez keeps his nerve as Mexico wobble

It wasn't pretty, but Mexico stumbled into the Gold Cup final after a 1-0 extra-time win over Haiti on Tuesday. Following a tedious 90 minutes that featured little more than El Tri dominating possession and launching inaccurate shots, Mexico was then given a lifeline through a penalty in extra time.

The lone goal that followed from Raul Jimenez was one of the few highlights in a game that showed a lack of creativity for Mexico going forward. Nonetheless, that goal was enough to guarantee a place...
