Miguel Sabah scored two goals and Mexico advanced to the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinals without suspended Coach Javier Aguirre, defeating Haiti, 4-0, Sunday at Arlington, Texas.

Aguirre was serving the second of a three-game suspension for his altercation with Panama's Ricardo Phillips during group play July 9.

He will also miss Mexico's semifinal Thursday against Costa Rica, which beat Guadeloupe, 5-1, in another quarterfinal at the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

The two games marked the first sporting events played in the $1.15-billion facility.



Abby Wambach scored her 100th international goal in the United States' 1-0 win over Canada in her hometown of Rochester, N.Y. . . . Oscar Rojas scored the winning goal in the shootout and Club America defeated Inter Milan, 5-4, on penalty kicks at Palo Alto after the teams tied, 1-1, in regulation.
