With 48 hours to go before the kick-off of the Gold Cup at The Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey, CONCACAF have announced another last-minute sponsorship sale with Toyota coming on board as the Official Motor Vehicle of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Next up for the U.S.is a Wednesday match against Martinique in Tampa, Florida.

Zambrano, whose coaching resume includes clubs in Colombia, Ecuador, Hungary, Moldova and the US, is eager to see his players under the Gold Cup spotlight.

Osorio was incensed when his team was not awarded a penalty against Portugal.

Bruce Arena's men squandered the best chance of the half as Acosta set up Rowe from 15 yards, but he could only send his drive straight at Calderon, who was growing in confidence. Osorio was ordered to leave the touchline by the referee. They have to play the way they did for the opening hour against French Guiana for the full 90 minutes in their next two contests.

With just three matches in the group stage, there is a lot of pressure on both squads to get a win.

The CONCACAF Gold Cup is a 12-team tournament that takes place in the United States every two years to decide the champion of the CONCACAF region.

"They do have some talented players who can be unsafe if we aren't sharp and ready to play".

On Saturday, the latest quest will begin in Nashville, Tennessee, against Panama, an opponent that has historically done plenty to push the Americans to their absolute limit, and on occasion, beyond.

"We just weren't able to get in that final third enough", said the captain, Alejandro Bedoya. Those national teams are, in alphabetical order: Canada, Costa Rica, Curacao, El Salvador, French Guiana, Honduras, Jamaica, Martinique, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and the United States, all of which will compete for the Confederation title next month.

The 14 Gold Cup debutantes include Vancouver Whitecaps teenager Alphonso Davies, who will commit his worldwide future to Canada the moment he steps on the tournament field.

Still, all that being said, who actually wins the Gold Cup will probably come down to the big three.

Mexico was accused of overlooking the US, but the every-two-days schedule favored the Americans, who were fit and strong physically. Instead it is testing its junior varsity before World Cup qualifying resumes in September.

While few will be begging Arena to place Guzan ahead of Tim Howard, it's good to be reminded that the IL 'keep has star performances in his locker. I think we're focused. Not recognized as a member of Federation Internationale de Football Association, the country acts as an overseas department for France, meaning that players from French Guiana can play for both France's national team and their own. Living up to his club form, Dwyer scored a goal in his worldwide debut against Ghana in a July 1 friendly.
