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. But officials in Philadelphia worked extremely hard to snatch the big game out of the Meadowlands' grasp.

Jozy Altidore's goal in the game's 8th minute was just enough for the United States to beat Guadeloupe, 1-0, and advance to the quarterfinal round of the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament. The United States finished second in its group with a 1-1-1 record, behind Panama (2-0-1), which tied Canada, 1-1, in the first game of the doubleheader, the first games played at the new LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan., home of Major League Soccer's Sporting Kansas City. The United States will play Jamaica on Sunday at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Jamaica and Mexico had perfect 3-0-0 first-round records.

The United States won the CONCACAF Gold Cup for the third time, beating Panama, 3-1, on penalty kicks following a scoreless tie in yesterday's final at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Santino Quaranta, Landon Donovan and Brad Davis converted penalty kicks for the Americans, while goalkeeper Kasey Keller allowed just one penalty, to Felipe Baloy. At the end, with only a few thousand fans left from the crowd of 31,018, the American players raised the trophy. "You don't get many chances to win as professionals," Donovan said.

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.

Andre Blake was swept up by the emotion as his Jamaican soccer team made an unexpected run to the finals of the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup last summer. The Reggae Boyz enjoyed a memorable run that didn't end until a 3-1 loss to Mexico in the final at Lincoln Financial Field. The tournament provided everything for Blake, the Union's goalkeeper, with one exception - playing time. Blake spent the entire tournament as a spectator. Now less than a year later, Blake could be a leading figure as Jamaica hopes to make another surprising run while competing in Group C of Copa America.

THE CONCACAF Gold Cup was never going to provide all the answers for the United States' men's national team, but it wasn't expected to produce so many questions. The big question after USA lost to Panama in the third-place game on Saturday at PPL Park is: Was the tournament simply a disappointment or was a huge setback? As always with the United States, roster selection was an issue of debate with some saying Jürgen Klinsmann again sacrificed quality for the sake of future development.

If this was DaMarcus Beasley's final moment with the U.S. men's national soccer team, it isn't the way he wanted to go out. Beasley, who announced he was planning to retire from the national team, had his penalty kick blocked by Panama's Luis Mejia. That clinched the penalty kick shootout for Panama, 3-2, in the CONCACAF Gold Cup third-place game before 12,598 Saturday at PPL Park.   The teams had played to a 1-1 draw through 120 minutes.  "It is tough to lose like that, not just . . . because it could be my last game but because we didn't get the result we wanted," said Beasley, who has left the window open to return.

U.S. men's national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann hears the mounting criticism and instead of lashing back at his critics, he says it is actually good for the sport. Really? Klinsmann has borne the brunt of the criticism following Wednesday's 2-1 semifinal loss to Jamaica during a CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal in Atlanta. "It is very fine with me," he said about the criticism while speaking during a news conference on Friday at PPL Park, the venue for Saturday's 4 p.m. third-place Gold Cup game against Panama.

The final whistle blew, and this is all that came to mind trying to sum up Wednesday night and the CONCACAF Gold Cup for the U.S. men's national team: Colossal failure. The U.S. men will show up Saturday afternoon at PPL Park in Chester ready to play in the most meaningless of athletic endeavors, a third-place game. Even if the Americans handle Panama - which can't be blamed at all if it doesn't really want to be here -  this Gold Cup still goes down as the one in which the United States lost in the semifinals on home soil to a country it simply doesn't lose to on home soil.

THE PITCH conditions throughout the CONCACAF Gold Cup have been a hot topic of discussion among players, commentators and fans alike. Games have been played all over the United States on varying field setups. After holding matches in Dallas and Kansas City in MLS grass-field stadiums, play moved to larger-capacity stadiums for the later rounds. Gillette Stadium, for example, is a turf field, which is fine for the New England Patriots and other teams to play football on. While all games in the Gold Cup have technically been played on grass pitches, many stadiums laid grass sod over turf fields when hosting the CONCACAF national teams.

YESTERDAY'S NEWS conference at Lincoln Financial Field mainly served to make an official announcement of something that was already well-known: Philadelphia will host the CONCACAF Gold Cup final on July 26, and the third-place game on July 25. 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 seats in front of them were taken by national team coaches from across the region, including U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann and Mexico's Miguel Herrera.
