A second-half goal from Jonathan Dos Santos lifted Mexico past the United States, 1-0, in the 2019 Gold Cup final on Sunday night in Chicago.
Both Christian Pulisic and Jozy Altidore missed golden opportunities in the opening minutes to set the tone for the USMNT. Mexico knocked on the door for most of the second half and the winner finally came in the 73rd minute.
For the fourth time in history and the second time in a row, the United States women's national team is the world's best. In Lyon, France on Sunday, the Americans beat the Netherlands 2-0 in the final at the 2019 Women's World Cup. Megan Rapinoe and Rose Lavelle both scored in the second half, and Jill Ellis remained unbeaten in World Cup play, becoming the first manager to win the tournament twice.
