Despite winning their third Gold Cup in the last four editions, U.S. Men’s National Team coach Bob Bradley says the team can still improve quite a bit when it comes to wrapping up wins.
The Americans blew several good chances throughout the tourney when a dagger goal would have essentially sealed victory.
“Finishing games has not been our strong suit in the Gold Cup,” Bradley admitted to reporters after a 2-1 final win over Mexico on Sunday. “At this point we can laugh about it, but nonetheless it’s something that becomes important because you know in big games when it’s one goal that the other team will throw everything they have at the end.”
“In the moments when you get chances to build on that lead you have to take advantage of it.”
