Mexico 2, U.S. 1

Aug. 12, 2009

The U.S. and Mexico have won nine of the 10 Gold Cups tournaments since the biennial event adopted its current form in 1991 and are slated to play again on Saturday. Here's a look at some of their most memorable recent matches.

The U.S. took its first-ever lead at Azteca Stadium, but went on to lose 2-1 in what was a critical World Cup qualifier for Mexico. The win changed the tide for the then-struggling Mexican squad, as it went on to go 3-0-1 in its next four matches to earn a trip to South Africa. The U.S. still went on to finish first in CONCACAF qualification.
