The United States actually led 2-0 after 22 minutes, only to see Mexico score four unanswered goals.

Michael Bradley and Landon Donovan each scored a goal for Team USA, while Pablo Barrera scored twice for Team Mexico. Andres Guardado and Giovani dos Santos also added a goal each for the winning squad.

Mexico outshot the United States 13-8 for the game.

Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, who led this year's Gold Cup with seven goals for Team Mexico, was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

The announced attendance of 93,420 was the largest ever for a Gold Cup game played in the United States, but it was apparent throughout that the crowd was more in Mexico's corner.
