US Junior Varsity Lineup Upsets Mexico 1-0 to Win Gold Cup
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Miles Robinson scored on a header in the 117th minute, and a United States junior varsity lineup upset a mostly front-line Mexico team 1-0 to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup. Kellyn Acosta, one of two players in the U.S. lineup who gets playing time when the first-choice roster is together, took a free kick, and Robinson outjumped Edson Álvarez and headed the ball in on one hop to the right of goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera. Robinson, a 24-year-old defender, got his third international goal in nine international appearances. The U.S. won its seventh Gold Cup title, its first since 2017.
