U.S. deals with nipple twisting and biting in Gold Cup win over El Salvador

FC's Sebastian Salazar and Herculez Gomez analyze a rough Gold Cup match, which saw the USMNT narrowly win vs. El Salvador.
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...

U.S. beats El Salvador 2-0 and advances to Gold Cup semifinal vs. Costa Rica

Omar Gonzalez's flicked header gave the U.S. a lead it would not relinquish against 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...

Veteran Alejandro Bedoya makes mark on youthful USA Gold Cup squad

U.S. Gold Cup captain Alejandro Bedoya highlights the U.S.' positive reaction vs. Nicaragua, all while expecting a newborn.
Janusz Michallik reviews the United States' group stage performance in the Gold Cup and notes the key performers.
Goalscorers Kelyn Rowe and Matt Miazga reflect on their personal showings vs. Nicaragua, while Dax McCarty look ahead.

CLEVELAND -- As Alejandro Bedoya slowly walked toward the team bus, it was evident that his day's work had come at a physical cost. "I got whacked on that first assist, so my ankle is feeling it," he said.

But there was a payoff, too. Bedoya, operating as the U.S. team's box-to-box midfielder, set up goals for Joe Corona and Kelyn Rowe, plays that proved critical in the Americans' 3-0 win over Nicaragua on Saturday night. The result enabled the U.S. to finish the first round of the Gold Cup atop...

Goalscorers Kelyn Rowe and Matt Miazga reflect on their personal showings vs. Nicaragua, while Dax McCarty look ahead.

Joe Corona opened the scoring in the 36th minute while Kelyn Rowe added another in the 56th minute. With the U.S. needing a goal to leapfrog Panama in Group B, it was left to Matt Miazga to get the vital tally in the 88th minute.

Here are three thoughts on the match.

1. U.S gets the job done

Following Panama's 3-0 win over...
