Yahoo Jurgen Klinsmann only focused on winning Gold Cup, not suspension

 

"Panama is here for a reason, they beat Mexico twice. That's enough said with those words," Klinsmann said.

 

"In my opinion, they've been the best team in the tournament along with us and they deserve to be there at the final. It could look similar [to the 2005 match]," Donovan said. "We're prepared to play 90 minutes, 120, penalties."

 

On a team that features players who are eager to prove themselves and young growing stars like Joe Corona and Mix Diskerud, success in the Gold Cup final could be a major building block heading into next year's World Cup in Brazil.

PREVIEW: Gold Cup Final descends on Chicago's Soldier Field Sunday afternoon

 

These two teams have met predominantly in Gold Cup and CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, with the US enjoying a 9-1-2 overall record against their Central American counterparts. They've battled in the knockout rounds of the past five Gold Cups, with the Yanks coming out on top every time. But Panama did inflict its one triumph over the USMNT in the last edition of the tournament, a 2-1 group-stage win in Tampa, Fla., which remains the USA's only group-stage loss in Gold Cup history and one of the more humbling setbacks of Bob Bradley's tenure.
