The United States men’s national team won the 2023 CONCACAF Nations League final against Canada, after a 2-0 victory.
The match was played at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado. The United States took the lead in the 27th minute, when Gio Reyna scored from close range. Christian Pulisic doubled the lead in the 84th minute, with a curling shot from outside the box.
The United States had a number of other chances to score, but they were denied by some good saves from Canadian goalkeeper Milan Borjan.
The win is the United States’ first major trophy since winning the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup. It is also their first trophy under new head coach Gregg Berhalter.
The United States and Canada are now the top two teams in the CONCACAF rankings. This means that they will both be seeded in Pot 1 for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which will be jointly hosted by the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
Here are some additional details from the article that I paraphrased:
- The match was played in front of a crowd of 26,216 people.
- The United States’ starting lineup featured a number of young players, including Reyna, Pulisic, and Yunus Musah.
- Canada’s best chance of the match came in the 56th minute, when Jonathan David hit the post.
- The United States’ win was their first against Canada since 2017.
