Record-tying Dempsey helps U.S. beat Costa Rica 2-0, reach Gold Cup final

Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez break down the United States' win over Costa Rica in the Gold Cup semifinals.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Three thoughts from the United States' 2-0 win over Costa Rica on Saturday night in the 2017 Gold Cup semifinals.

1. Dempsey sparks U.S. to victory

While it might not be quite the time yet to label Clint Dempsey as a "super sub" for the U.S. national team, he played the role with aplomb Saturday in sparking the U.S. to a 2-0 win over Costa Rica in the Gold Cup semifinals at AT&T Stadium.

The result sends the U.S. to a 10th Gold Cup final, where it will likely face familiar...

Lukaku and Rashford show promise for Man United and a two-striker system

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford were the heroes for Man United as they defeated Man City in the first derby played on foreign soil.

HOUSTON -- Here's what we learned in Manchester United's 2-0 International Champions Cup win against Manchester City on Thursday night.

Lukaku and Rashford, a return to twin strikers?

It has been a while since twin strikers were the fashion, with false nines and solitary front men dominating the scene in recent years, but Jose Mourinho believes Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford can play together up front. The Manchester United pair backed up their manager's theory in Houston.

They both possess...

After an unconvincing quarterfinal win over El Salvador, Taylor Twellman is concerned by the state of the USMNT's Gold Cup.

PHILADELPHIA -- Just call it "50 Shades of Soccer." Wednesday's Gold Cup quarterfinal between the U.S. and El Salvador had just about everything. There was biting, nipple twisting and, oh, a couple of U.S. goals in a 2-0 win for the home side.

Yep, just another night in CONCACAF.

Jozy Altidore was the recipient of most of the unwanted advances, including a bite from El Salvador defender Henry Romero in the 59th minute. Romero later twisted Altidore's nipple, and both actions had the effect of incapacitating...

FC's Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez analyze the U.S.'s narrow Gold Cup victory over El Salvador.

PHILADELPHIA -- The U.S. men's national team is headed to the semifinals of the 2017 Gold Cup courtesy of a 2-0 victory over El Salvador. First-half goals from Omar Gonzalez and Eric Lichaj gave the U.S. the lead it needed, despite a few anxious moments in the second half.

Here are three thoughts from the Americans' victory.

1. U.S. keeps emotions in check to advance

For the majority of the first half, the style and emotion fit El Salvador's game plan. There were plenty of off-the-ball shenanigans,...

Manchester United victorious in Salt Lake City, but at what cost?

Manchester United came from 1-0 down to win 2-1 over RSL, with big summer signing Romelu Lukaku scoring the game-winning goal.
FC's Mark Ogden checks in after Man United's 2-1 win over Salt Lake, and if two big injuries will harm United down the road.
Stewart Robson looks at Jose Mourinho's projected lineups in a 3-5-2 and 4-3-3 formation.

SANDY, Utah -- Manchester United spent just over 10 hours in Salt Lake City on Monday, but with Juan Mata injured and Antonio Valencia sent off for dangerous play during the victory over Real Salt Lake, Jose Mourinho must have flown back to the team's Los Angeles base wondering whether it was a trip worth making.

After all, this game was United's second in the space of 48 hours, following Saturday's 5-2 victory over LA Galaxy at the StubHub Center.

On Thursday, United face neighbours Manchester...
