Live Commentary

  • Terrible night for Bob Bradley's squad all around. Credit to Panama for its effort, but for the USA, that's a tough loss to swallow.
  • 90' + 5'
    And there's the final whistle. The first loss ever for the USA to Panama. The first loss ever for the USA in Gold Cup group play.
  • 90' + 3'
    Yellow Card Carlos Bocanegra
  • 90' + 2'
    Yellow Card J. Penedo
  • 90' + 2'
    Donovan with a hit, wide...
  • 90' + 1'
    Corner for the USA.
  • 90'
    BRADLEY!!!, No!! How did he miss it? It looked good. Great build up, maybe the best of the night for the USA.
  • 88'
    Cherundolo with a hit from deep, nothing doing, over the bar.
  • 86'
    More pressure from the USA now. Still nothing to show for it. Panama is sitting so deep.
  • 85'
    Time is running thin here. The USA needs at least another goal.
  • 84'
    SubstitutionArmando Cooper Quintero
  • 81'
    SubstitutionL. Tejada E. Bonaga
  • 81'
    Chance of the game for Wondolowski, set on a platter and he puts it over.
  • 78'
    SubstitutionC. Goodson Chris Wondolowski
  • 76'
    Corner again for the USA, nothing from it. Panama has actually defended those well.
  • 74'
    Panama finally grabs the ball for a moment to relieve the pressure.
  • 72'
    And again, it's a broken record.
  • 71'
    Another set play, leads to another corner. The USA has Panama on its heels right now.
  • 70'
    SubstitutionN. Barahona Gabriel Torres
  • 69'
    Dempsey with a header of his own just over the goal.
  • 67'
    Clarence Goodson with the finish after a flick from Bradley, great goal, game on.
  • 67'
    Free kick for the USA, and there's the GOAL!!!!!
  • 66'
    Assist Michael Bradley
  • 66'
    Goal C. Goodson
  • 64'
    Yellow Card Alejandro Bedoya
  • 64'
    Bedoya picks up a card for diving. Good call actually. Dumb dive. Another sign of inexperience from some of the USA newer players.
  • 63'
    USA with another corner, not making these count right.
  • 61'
    SubstitutionJ. Agudelo Alejandro Bedoya
  • 60'
    SubstitutionJones Sacha Kljestan
  • 60'
    Jones out, Agudelo out. Looks like Dempsey is going up top and Kljestan is coming in in the middle along with Bedoya.
  • 58'
    Panama is getting the better of the chances still. The USA doesn't seem to have an answer.
  • 56'
    Yellow Card C. Goodson
  • 55'
    WOW again. The USA isn't getting very many calls. Goodson picked up a yellow, well earned might I add, but Panama picked up another soft foul while the USA couldn't get any at the other end.
  • 54'
    Another foul on the USA. Goodson is upset, claiming a dive. Not a bad hit from Gomez, sent it just over the bar.
  • 53'
    Good effort from Bradley to try and slip Dempsey through. Earns a corner, but nothing from it once again.
  • 51'
    Tim Ream has got to get it together. Perez was set free again, Howard made the save.
  • 49'
    Nothing from it.
  • 49'
    USA pushing the action again now. Handball called on Panama, good position here.
  • 46'
    Back at it. Panama with the ball and an early shot wide of the target.
  • Terrible first half for the USA. I guess it could have been worse but I'm not sure how.
  • 45'
    Only two minutes added on. Seems a bit shy.
  • 45'
    Bradley with a shot from distance, maybe the USA's last look at it before the break.
  • 42'
    The US defense nearly gave up another goal. Goodson and Ream are just getting toasted here. Terrible play again and Tejada probably should have scored.
  • 38'
    Dempsey again chasing down lost causes, and now Panama's 'keeper is on the ground. Dempsey looks like he took a knock as well.
  • 37'
    This is terrible from the USA back line. Just a bad night to this point, and it's a long way back from here.
  • 36'
    Penalty Goal G. Gómez
  • 36'
    Goal, Panama, 2-0. Nothing Howard could do there. This time there can't really be a complaint of any time.
  • 35'
    Tim Ream just gave up a penalty. Terrible tackle, he did take a shot from Perez, but that's just a lack of experience right there.
  • 32'
    Panama still getting some good movement down the right. Another dangerous cross in, and the U.S. defense is in danger of getting caught out by pressing so high up the pitch.
  • 28'
    USA pressing the play now. Deliveries from Donovan are getting better. Goodson with the head this time.
  • 26'
    Dempsey again with the head this time, no luck. Game has gotten chippy. Two cards passed out. On Panama for the foul, on the USA for talking a bit to much about the foul.
  • 25'
    Yellow Card N. Barahona
  • 25'
    Yellow Card Jozy Altidore
  • 22'
    Not sure what to make of the goal. The defending was terrible, but the call on the Jones card was equally terrible. Agudelo tried to answer with his left foot, but nothing doing.
  • 19'
    Own Goal C. Goodson
  • 19'
    Goal for Panama. Great ball in, Howard makes the save off the first shot, but Tejada is there to push it in the net and the USA now has a hill to climb.
  • 18'
    Yellow Card Jones
  • 18'
    Jones picks up a card. WOW, is all I can say. What a terrible call. Jones doesn't even make the contact, it's the Panama player kicking in after Jones gets to the ball. A dangerous spot here.
  • 17'
    Panama looks confident on the ball. This is a group that isn't at all afraid to come out and try to play the USA, but the players will tuck in deep when the Americans have the ball. Dempsey in a tangle there after winning the ball back, gets called for a foul.
  • 14'
    Just not good enough in the service from Landon Donovan there. The USA can use those set pieces well when his service is good.
  • 13'
    USA has settled down a bit now, but Panama isn't exactly struggling to cope. There's a bad foul from the team in red, this could be a dangerous spot for Panama to deal with.
  • 10'
    Great work from Jermaine Jones to win the ball back after Agudelo had given it away cheaply. Won a free kick as well but nothing comes of it.
  • 7'
    Finally a decent bit of pressure from the USA. Agudelo, Dempsey and Bocanegra working down the right. DEMPSEY!!! So close with a rip into the side netting.
  • 5'
    Really good start from Panama here. Not good for the USA. Tejada looks very active and the USA is struggling to keep the ball
  • 3'
    Blaz Perez down on the pitch early. Took an elbow to the ribs from Jermaine Jones. He'll leave the pitch for a bit, freekick to Panama, and it nearly paid off. Cross from the left just gets by Tejada.
  • 2'
    USA on the ball early, swinging it calmly around the back. Long ball to Altidore and possession is gone.
  • 1'
    And we're off. USA in the white strip, Panama in its red.
  • We're getting close to the kick here. Look for a tight match. Tejada and Perez are the danger men for Panama up top and could cause the USA some very real problems.
  • Looks like Bob Bradley is going with the same group against Panama that he used against Canada. Big match here against Panama. Both teams won their opener in Group C and the winner here is free and clear into the quarterfinals. Allen Ramsey here to take you through it whenever it gets going.
