Mexico extended their record number of Concacaf Gold Cup wins as Jonathan dos Santos' strike gave them a narrow victory over the United States.LA Galaxy midfielder Dos Santos latched on to a smart Raul Jimenez back heel to fire in off the bar in front of 62,493 fans at Chicago's Soldier Field.

 

Christian Pulisic had a good early chance but US boss Gregg Berhalter said that  Mexico were the "better team". Berhalter  said that he thinks that they  lacked some calmness and composure  and when you talk about a step the team needs to take, we're close but we weren't there tonight.

The Gold Cup, referred to as the Concacaf Championship before 1991, crowns the continental champions of North America, Central America and the Caribbean.

Mexico's Andres  said that Mexico now have 11 wins in the tournament's history, five more than the US, who claimed the biennial tournament in 2017 Guardado said that this was what we came here for.

Moments after new Chelsea signing Pulisic was denied in a frenetic opening, US striker Jozy Altidore fired wide when one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

 

Guardado headed a Jordan Morris effort off the line after half-time before Dos Santos produced the game's decisive moment with a clinical left-foot finish.
