The United States defeated Mexico 1-0 in the 2021 Gold Cup final with a Miles Robinson header in extra time.

The U.S. went into the match Sunday as the underdog because many of its top players from the Nations League tourney were not on the Gold Cup roster so they could prepare for their European seasons.

"Before the final today, there was a feeling inside of me that I just wanted it so bad for them, that they can taste this, and then they can win a trophy together," manager Gregg Berhlater said. "So really proud of the group, really proud of their resiliency."
