Dempsey goal advances USMNT to Gold Cup final vs. Mexico

The United States’ run so far in the CONCACAF Gold Cup hasn’t been dominant or inspiring, but despite the lack of style points, Bob Bradley‘s side has advanced to the Saturday’s 6 p.m. championship game in the Rose Bowl. Clint Dempsey scored the lone goal, with substitutes Landon Donovan and Freddy Adu, involved in the buildup to beat Panama 1-0 on Wednesday.

And who might be waiting in the final? Well, of course, it’s Mexico.

The glamor match-up was sealed when El Tri beat Honduras 2-0 after extra time. Aldo de Nigris and Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez scored the goals.

So what do you think of Saturday’s upcoming showdown?
