U.S. gets the job done vs. Nicaragua to ease into Gold Cup quarterfinals

Janusz Michallik reviews the United States' group stage performance in the Gold Cup and notes the key performers.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The U.S. men's national team defeated Nicaragua 3-0 on Saturday to end the Gold Cup group stage on a positive note and claim first place in Group B. Joe Corona opened the scoring in the 36th minute while Kelyn Rowe added another in the 56th minute. With the U.S. needing a goal to leapfrog Panama in Group B, it was left to Matt Miazga to get the vital tally in the 88th minute.

Here are three thoughts on the match.

Bedoya stands out as U.S. gets 3-0 win vs. Nicaragua to top Gold Cup Group B

Janusz Michallik reviews the United States' group stage performance in the Gold Cup and notes the key performers.

It took a little longer than expected, but the United States did what it had to do to win Gold Cup Group B with a 3-0 victory over Nicaragua on Saturday evening at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.

Positives

Out of the three group-stage matches, this was the best performance from the U.S., which really isn't saying that much. Yet there were some positives, namely Alejandro Bedoya and Kelyn Rowe in midfield. Matt Miazga and Matt Besler also worked well as the two center backs and could be the...

Janusz Michallik reviews the United States' group stage performance in the Gold Cup and notes the key performers.

Matt Miazga scored in the 88th minute to cap the United States' 3-0 win over Nicaragua in Cleveland on Saturday, ensuring the Americans topped CONCACAF Gold Cup Group B on goals scored.

The U.S. needed to win by three goals to ensure they matched the plus-four goal difference of Panama, who beat Martinique 3-0 earlier in the day. They won the group on the next tiebreaker, goals scored, 7-6.

Though Joe Corona and Kelyn Rowe had the U.S. up by two goals, a pair of missed penalties had the Americans...

World Cup 'audition' pressure affecting youngsters on U.S. Gold Cup squad

ESPN's Herculez Gomez discusses what positives the U.S. can take moving forward after the Gold Cup.

CLEVELAND -- For the U.S. men's national team, the final group-stage game of the Gold Cup is usually a time for fine-tuning: Perhaps a few players need a rest, or it's time to refine some tactical concepts.

Yet as the group stage concludes for the U.S. on Saturday against Nicaragua, the Americans find themselves in a very different place. Rather than tinkering, what manager Bruce Arena really needs from his side is for it to raise its game considerably and deliver a complete performance.

Ismael Diaz and Gabriel Torres scored seven minutes apart as Panama leapt into the Group B lead at the 2017 Gold Cup with a 2-1 victory over Nicaragua in Tampa.

Panama, who drew with the United States in their opening match, faced a deficit just after the break when Carlos Chavarria pounced on an errant pass and rifled his right-footed shoot past a helpless Jose Calderon in the Panamanian goal.

However, Nicaragua's lead would only last two minutes as Diaz leveled the score -- firing high...
