U.S. books its place in Sunday's Gold Cup final

BY Jamie Trecker • July 27, 2009

Goals from Clarence Goodson and Kenny Cooper led the USA to a 2-0 win over Honduras and a berth in the Gold Cup finals Thursday night at Soldier Field.

It was the third straight win for the USA over the Central American side in the space of barely two months, and second win in the Gold Cup itself. The Americans will face bitter rivals Mexico yet again in Sunday's final after El Tri defeated Costa Rica in a thrilling penalty kick shootout.
