  • The headlines say it all: Scrappy Panama Battles Sloppy Yanks to a 1-1 Draw

  • Or the opening paragraph: "You know it wasn't a good performance when a team's best player is its goalkeeper. That was the case for the United States in its 1-1 tie with Panama on Saturday in Nashville.Had Los Canaleros been able to find the target with more regularity on the clear chances they created, we might very well be talking about the Americans' second-ever defeat in the group stage of a Gold Cup."

  • And this: "The game on Wednesday against Martinique is now very, very big. The US have to win by as many as possible since they're in a goal differential race to the top of the group against the Panamanians.It'll take a more cohesive and committed effort, and a more complimentary squad selection to get the job done."
