Besler, Dwyer, Zusi and the U.S. MNT will now turn their attention to Wednesday's Group B match against Martinique, which will kick off at 8 p.m. CT on FS1, UniMas and UDN at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
Osorio was incensed when his team was not awarded a penalty against Portugal.
Arena says that during his years as an MLS coach, he often tried unsuccessfully to trade for McCarty. Osorio was ordered to leave the touchline by the referee. Dwyer, 26, was born in Cuckfield, England - I'll let you make your own jokes - and grew up in Norwich City's youth system.
Canada opened its CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign with one of its best performances in recent history, showing glimpses of the dynamic attacking play that coach Octavio Zambrano has promised since being appointed back in March. We point this out because that duo looked pretty darn good a week ago against Ghana, the sort of thing that can happen when chemistry is growing and one of those players turns 22 in a fortnight. They are now in very good shape in World Cup Qualifying - their only loss has come against Mexico. "In some ways, we have a new identity with this team, some new players".
"When the game started going I got more comfortable".
Jordan Morris came on late in the second half as Arena tried to spark the US attack, but despite some quality moments, the Seattle Sounders striker couldn't push his team to the win. It's no excuse. We didn't move the ball quick enough. While the final two Group Stage matches vs. Martinique and Nicaragua should be easier tasks, Arena will nonetheless have opportunities for further evaluation.
It marked the first time the USA had failed to win their first match at the Gold Cup, which they have lifted on five occasions. Goalkeeper Andre Blake will also be a good addition to the squad which will go up against a unit supplemented by talent from the Netherlands. 24/10 | Panama 15/4 (22:30) The United States, winners of the 2013 Gold Cup, are strong favourites to top Group B, but Panama will be their biggest threat. Honduras and Costa Rica are favored to get out of the group, but the victor of French Guiana and Canada could qualify for the quarterfinals as a third-place team.
The tournament is made up of 12 teams divided into three groups of four. Bet: the victory of the national team of Canada - P2. He scored his first goal for team US on a free kick in a friendly against Ghana earlier this month, and has shown the potential to be a quality two-way player.
Elsewhere on Saturday it could pay to back the draw at 5/2 with bet365 when United States of America face Panama. The campaign will celebrate "the brave-hearted spirit of the vehicle and hardcore soccer aficionados, the campaign pays tribute to the heart, soul and sweat players pour into every moment they are on the field", said a CONCACAF press release.
