Oh when the Yanks go marching in: Get your U.S. flags for Gold Cup soccer
By Luke Porco
Now that summer is approaching, and it is an odd-numbered year, that means the CONCACAF Gold Cup will be played. The Gold Cup features soccer teams from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. The United States men's national team are the defending champions, as well as the co-host country, along with rival Mexico, Costa Rica and Jamaica. With that in mind, the American flag will be displayed by Americans throughout the tournament. Not only will the U.S. flag be a popular item, but flags are available from other countries in the tournament from the CONCACAF region.
The United States won its sixth Gold Cup in 2017, defeating Jamaica in the final. If the United States were to win this year, they would be tied with Mexico for seven Gold Cup championships, the most a team has won. A win this year would also give the Americans automatic qualification to the Confederations Cup The teams competing include co-host countries, Costa Rica and Jamaica, as well as Mexico, Panama, Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti, Canada, Martinique, Curacao, Bermuda, Cuba, Guyana, Nicaragua, and El Salvador.
