America and Mexico top their groups in the CONCACAF Gold Cup

The United States of America and Mexico topped their groups in the Nations Championship of North, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) for soccer "Golden Cup" thanks to two difficult victories over Canada and El Salvador, respectively, with the same result (1-0).

The United States achieved the full mark with its third victory at the expense of Canada in the decisive match to determine the leader of Group B thanks to a very early goal scored by defender Chuck Moore at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City in front of more than 18,000 spectators.

The victory goal came after only 23 seconds of kick-off.

Although Canada was the best team on the field, it was not successful, in addition to the controversial decisions of Mexican referee Adonai Escobedo.

Canada's balance froze at six points, to qualify alongside the United States for the quarter-finals.

The two teams will face Costa Rica and Jamaica in the quarter-finals, awaiting the identity of the leader of Group C between them on Tuesday evening / Wednesday dawn.

At the Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas, Mexico defeated El Salvador with a clean goal, scored by Luis Rodriguez (26th), in front of more than 40,000 fans, to top Group A with seven points, one point ahead of El Salvador, which accompanied it to the quarter-finals.

El Salvador also deserved to come out with at least a point, especially with the duo, Mir Martinez and Alexandre Larrin wasting many opportunities, including a free kick that hit the post (s 71).

The two teams will have to wait for who will take the lead in Group D and runner-up, as Honduras is leading so far with six points, followed by Qatar with four points, where they will meet at dawn on Wednesday.

The opportunity will be in front of the Arab team participating in the invitation card in the tournament, which will organize the World Cup 2022, to top the group if it defeats Honduras.

Although Haiti beat Martinica 1-2, both teams were eliminated from Group B to be eliminated from the tournament.

Similarly, the teams of Guatemala and Trinidad and Tobago will leave after their 1-1 draw, to get an honorable point and be placed in the tournament in Group A.
