CHICAGO — In a widely anticipated clash of North American powerhouses, the United States Men’s National Team fell 1-0 to Mexico in the Concacaf Gold Cup final.

A chippy affair saw many complaints directed toward the match official, and a predominantly pro-Mexico crowd made the too-common homophobic chant prevalent. Jonathan Dos Santos scored the game’s only goal in the second half.
