United States wins and advances to Gold Cup quarterfinals

The U.S. men's national soccer team's 2017 Gold Cup run hasn't gotten off to an ideal start.

Panama advanced to the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals with a resounding 3-0 victory over Martinique on Saturday in Cleveland. Panama will play Costa Rica in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

A hand ball in the Nicaragua penalty area five minutes later gave Corona a chance to score his second of the game and give the USA the margin it would need to win the group.

Coach Bruce Arena had planned all along to use nearly everyone on the 23-man roster in the group stage, and in the last match, he swapped out every starter from Wednesday's anxious performance against Martinique.

The top two teams in each of the three first-round groups and the top two third-place countries advance to the quarterfinals. Bedoya intercepted a pass deep in Nicaragua's end and tried working a combination with Dwyer.

That second goal would come in the 56th minute as Alejandro Bedoya found Kelyn Rowe, who beat Lorente with a right-footed shot. It took a slight deflection and beat Lorente to the near corner for Rowe's first worldwide goal. The USMNT had a chance to double the lead from the penalty spot in the 51st but Dom Dwyer saw his attempt saved. Seattle Sounders star Jordan Morris scored two goals, including the game victor in the 76th minute.

But Matt Miazga scored an 88th-minute header - his first global goal - to lift his side into top spot after Luis Fernando Copete had been sent off for Nicaragua. After defender Luis Copete picked up a second yellow card for a hard foul on Agudelo, Zusi placed a flawless free kick to the back post and Matt Miazga - who earned his first start for the U.S. MNT since May 22, 2016 - headed the ball past Lorente for a 3-0 lead.
