It is especially painful for U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann after his team lost to Jamaica, 2-1, in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals on Wednesday, making Jamaica the first Carribean team to reach the CONCACAF Gold Cup final.
"We had enough chances to put this game away," Klinsmann said after his team's devastating loss. "The luck was not with us maybe. Maybe we were not clinical enough. There was a lot of good that we saw. It was the goals that matter."
The Reggae Boyz gave the U.S. side its second defeat to a Caribbean team at home following the 1-0 loss to Haiti in in San Diego, California, on May 11, 1969. Jamaica quickly scored two goals within a five minute span in the first half of the game and held off the U.S. side in the second half.
U.S. goalkeeper Brad Guzan commented, "Obviously not the result we wanted: two set-piece goals. When we give a team like Jamaica a chance to stay in the game, they did well to hold on. At the other end, we probably could've taken one or two other chances, but that's football. At times we combined really well, created tons of chances. You can call it what you want. It's about scoring more goals and we didn't do it."
Klinsmann is still proud of his boys, "I cannot complain about the performance of the team," he said. "We kept pushing, pushing, pushing. They hit the wall and went through it and kept going until the end."
Panamanian striker Blas Perez also expressed sadness over his team's a 2-1 extra-time loss to Mexico in the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals on Wednesday night. The loss to Mexico sent Panama against their perennial Gold Cup-rival USA in the third-place match, which will be contested for the first time since 2003.
"I am very sad," Perez said. "Tonight, nobody is going to sleep. We're just focusing on Saturday. We'll see what happens."
Still Perez was pleased with his team's showing against the Mexican side. "Very well, excellent," the 34-year-old striker said. "Even though we played with one player less, Mexico didn't have a chance to reign over us."
Panama and the U.S. have played against each other in the 2005 and 2013 Gold Cuip finals and played to a 1-1 draw in the group stage of this year's competition in Kansas City, Kansas, on July 13. Perez scored Panama's goal in the 34th minute, before Michael Bradley equalized in the second half.
"We always try to play with every team very well. We demonstrated tonight that we went from less to more, but, unfortunately, we didn't win a game tonight," Perez continued.
