Five Aside

Gold Cup quarterfinals preview: Predictions, key players and what to watch for

We are down to the final eight teams in the Gold Cup. Central American stalwarts Honduras and El Salvador have gone home, while surprises abound like Curacao and Haiti, plus the top teams in the region like Mexico and the United States.

Here is the lowdown on each of the four quarterfinal clashes:


WHERE: NRG Stadium, Houston WHEN: Saturday 7:00 PM ET

THE STORY SO FAR: For the first time in its history, Haiti finished atop their Gold Cup group and head into the knockout round...

U.S. selection headaches for Berhalter

Momentum, confidence, sharpness, cohesiveness; these are chemical-like traits for a team, and they are as desirable as they are difficult to quantify.

Yet it's clear that in the wake of the 6-0 thrashing administered by the United States in Saturday's Gold Cup match against Trinidad and Tobago, these qualities are now at their peak for the U.S., at least in terms of the Gregg Berhalter era. The Americans' spot in the quarterfinals is also assured. This makes the U.S. manager's approach in Wednesday's...

2019 Gold Cup ultimate preview: Can anyone topple Mexico or the U.S. this summer?

You have to go back to the 2000 Gold Cup to find a winner who isn't Mexico or the United States,  but 2019 sees both of those sides enter the tournament with more questions than answers, and they'll be hunted down by teams full of dynamic young talent threatening to upend the order in North and Central America.

The U.S. enter the tournament as defending champions, but all has not gone well for the Stars and Stripes since lifting their continental crown in 2017. After failing to qualify...

Panama's World Cup woes remind U.S. fans of their team's failure

KALININGRAD, Russia -- For the United States, Panama's 6-1 thrashing at the hands of England rubs salt in a still gaping wound.

While Saudi Arabia was the early front-runner for the unofficial title of "Worst Team in the World Cup" when it was thrashed 5-0 in the opening game by host Russia, Panama has taken over that moniker.

Sure, the Canaleros might be happy just to have made it this far, and Felipe Baloy will go down in history as the country's first goal scorer at a World Cup. Meanwhile, Panama's...

Harry Kane, Jesse Lingard impress for mature England vs. woeful Panama

NIZHNY NOVGOROD, Russia -- Three thoughts on England's 6-1 win vs. Panama in Group G at the World Cup.

1. England show maturity and discipline

You can only beat what is in front of you, and what was in front of England was not much. But in a game that turned chippy and nasty on several occasions in the first half, Gareth Southgate's crew maintained their discipline and simply focused on executing.

Sure, it's a whole heck of a lot easier when the opposition's approach to set pieces seemingly involves...

Kane joins Lineker and Hurst as England canter to biggest win

Harry Kane stole the spotlight as a whole host of records tumbled following England's 6-1 thrashing of Panama. ESPN brings you the best numbers.


Harry Kane is the third England player to score a hat-trick in a World Cup game, emulating the feat of Geoff Hurst, who scored a hat-trick in the 1966 World Cup final against Germany, and Gary Lineker, who scored one against Poland at the 1986 World Cup in the group stages.


Kane's hat-trick is the 52nd in World Cup history, and the second...
