Philadelphia has been selected as the host city for the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, according to a source with direct knowledge of the decision. Lincoln Financial Field beat out Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, Atlanta's Georgia Dome and most notably East Rutherford, N.J.'s MetLife Stadium. The home of the NFL's New York Giants and Jets had been the overwhelming favorite to host the title game of the signature tournament for North and Central Americans national teams.

U.S. national team coach Bob Bradley stirred the melting pot yesterday when he announced his 23-man roster to compete June 4 against Spain (4:30 p.m., ESPN) and in the CONCACAF Gold Cup beginning June 7. For starters, Bradley's squad features a host of players who compete domestically in Major League Soccer and abroad with various European and South American clubs. But the biggest shocker was the return of midfielder Freddy Adu to the full men's team after a nearly 3-year hiatus.

But the event still didn't lack for spectacle. Mayor Nutter joined CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb and general secretary Enrique Sanz, Eagles president Don Smolenski, and Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz on stage.

THE IRONY of Jürgen Klinsmann having his fingerprints all over the United States men's national team collecting its first championship hardware since 2007 is that he was not the coach of record in the United States' 1-0 victory over Panama yesterday in the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup final. Klinsmann was suspended after being ejected in the semifinals and had to watch from a club suite at Soldier Field in Chicago. History will record that USA assistant Andreas Herzog was the coach.

BALTIMORE - The United States men's national soccer team is well-accustomed to feeling like the visiting team in its own country. From coast to coast, expatriate fans of North and Central American rivals routinely fill big American stadiums when their home countries come to visit. Yesterday's CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal against El Salvador was no different. U.S. star Landon Donovan is well-accustomed to silencing such raucous gatherings.

The forwards selected as all-stars are an impressive group consisting of Marco Di Vaio (Montreal), Thierry Henry (New York), Robbie Keane (Los Angeles), Camilo Sanvezzo (Vancouver)
