Perhaps it's true that neither team really wanted to be there, but you can be sure that the Americans wanted to win the game once the match kicked off. Still, Panama was clearly the hungrier of the two and the deserved winner in the end...

United States entirely focused on Gold Cup success, says Jurgen Klinsmann

The United States advanced to the Gold Cup semifinals with ease as Clint Dempsey's hat trick paved the way for a 6-0 win over Cuba in Baltimore.
