These sides also met in the 2005 final where USA won 3-1 on penlaties following a 0-0 stalemate, but judging by the amount of goals Jurgen Klinsmann's side have scored a bore draw doesn't seem likely on this occasion. The Stars and Stripes topped their group before beating El Salvador 5-1 in the quarter finals and Honduras 3-1 in the semi-finals to make it to their fifth consecutive Gold Cup final, scoring an impressive 19 goals along the way. One possible weakness for USA is their defence which has yeilded just one clean sheet in five games, some of which were against inferior opposition and they must safeguard against complacency on Sunday.
Panama have never won the CONCACAF Gold Cup and go into this game as the underdogs, but shouldn't be underestimated having performed well in each of their games so far. The Canal Men got a scoreline to match their dominance when beating Cuba 6-1 in the quarter-finals and upset the odds when beating tournament second favourites Mexico 2-1 in the semi-finals. Coach Julio Dely Valdés has instilled confidence in his players and as the outsiders they will enter this game without the pressure of expectation which could hinder the host nation.
