Juan Carlos Osorio head coach of Mexico looks

And two years ago, Panama claimed third place in the tournament at the Americans' expense, prevailing in a penalty shootout.

Bedoya made his 62nd worldwide appearance, most among players on the U.S. Gold Cup roster, and captained the Americans for the first time.

Bruce Arena's men squandered the best chance of the half as Acosta set up Rowe from 15 yards, but he could only send his drive straight at Calderon, who was growing in confidence. Osorio was ordered to leave the touchline by the referee. They consist of each group's victor and runner-up, along with the top two overall third-place finishers.

Osorio previously attracted attention for shouting verbal obscenities at the New Zealand coaching staff during a Confederations Cup group stage game on June 21.

After this result, both teams will be looking to post a huge goal differential over their next two games to finish on top of Group B. Martinique and Nicaragua aren't just in for two tough matches against superior squads, but games where their opponents will try their hardest to run up the score. At the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament, Nicaragua took part only once.

"I see myself as being a good link between the younger players on the team and the older, more experienced, players", said the Islander. Yes, for the fourth time running in meeting in global tournament play, each walked away with a single goal and a single point each. The last four matches between the nations have ended in 1-1 ties. They are now in very good shape in World Cup Qualifying - their only loss has come against Mexico. In fact, Panama has made it to the knockout rounds of the last six Gold Cups and has made it to the semi-finals of the last three Gold Cups. The US open their campaign in Group B on Saturday in Nashville, whilst Mexico start in San Diego on Sunday. There have been other close matches later in the tournament as well: The U.S. prevailed over Panama in fiercely contested finals in 2005 and 2013.

The U.S. toppled Panama in the title game, on Brek Shea's second-half goal, but this tournament - and the wins over Mexico - was a massive step in Panama's rise as a CONCACAF contender. The head coach said the incoming Atlanta United 'keeper played "very well", while the New England Revolution's Kelyn Rowe offered more effusive praise. "I was a bit nervous and shaken up at the start but I got my feet wet", said Davies.

After Dwyer notched his second goal in as many senior global appearances, it's as if the entire United States back line thought their work was done. On a hot day in Nashville, a couple of US players asserted themselves while a few others squandered a chance to do so with their poor play.

Spreading the hosting duties out makes for a more interesting tournament and could make the event a bigger deal.

Panama have conceded no more than one goal in 15 of their last 16 Gold Cup matches.
