Gold Cup Final: How to Watch USMNT Vs. Mexico Live Stream, TV Channel, Odds

The Gold Cup threatened and teased to conjure some major upsets but ultimately either the U.S. men's national team (USMNT) or Mexico will win the tournament for the 14th time in 15 editions.

With the exception of Canada's triumph in 2000, no other team has ever broken the U.S.-Mexico duopoly and the two pre-tournament favorites will renew their rivalry at Soldier Field in Chicago on Sunday night.

It is hard to know what to make of both sides, who have impressed and underwhelmed in equal measure on their way to the final. The U.S. were efficient but unspectacular during the group stages, were largely outplayed by Curacao in the quarterfinals and survived a scare to beat Jamaica 3-1 in the last four.

The Reggae Boyz's goal is so far the only goal the defending champions have conceded in the tournament but coach Gregg Berhalter said his side had work to do ahead of Sunday.

"I think we want to continue to grow," he said in the post-match press conference.

"It's hard to say that was our best. I think it was a step in the right direction against a more physical team than what we've been experiencing. I think it was good to get a win for confidence."

Berhalter can draw confidence from the fact Christian Pulisic seems to be coming into form just at the right time. After providing an assist in the quarterfinals, the new Chelsea signing scored twice against Jamaica and confirmed his status as his team's main attacking threat.

Mexico has attacking weapons of its own, but they have largely misfired in the knockout stages.

El Tri plundered in 13 goals in the group stage but has found the net just twice in the knockout phase, with Raul Jimenez on target against Costa Rica and Haiti. Fatigue could also be an issue for Mexico, who needed a penalty shootout to prevail over Los Ticos in the quarterfinals and only overcame Haiti in extra time on Tuesday night.

"The intention is that the boys recover for the final on Sunday," Mexico assistant Jorge Theiler was quoted as saying by ESPN. "The intensity of the games is high because Gerardo Martino's style is to press and constantly attack and the players get worn out.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the final.
