CHICAGO - Juergen Klinsmann said there was no team better than the United States in the last month of the CONCACAF Gold Cup soccer tournament. The Americans showed their coach exactly why Sunday in the final. The U.S. didn't allow a single shot on goal and picked up the game's lone score on an opportunistic shot by midfielder Brek Shea in the 68th minute. The 1-0 victory over Panama gave the U.S. its fifth Gold Cup championship. "You want to win it in a way that you feel you deserve it," said Klinsmann, who watched the game from a Solder Field luxury suite while serving a suspension.

The short-handed U.S. national soccer team shrunk again Sunday when it was announced that defender Fabian Johnson would not be joining the team in Kansas City, Kan., for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier with Guatemala, while suspended defender Jermaine Jones was sent home. The U.S., missing five players from the 24 it called up a week ago, held a two-hour public workout Sunday in Kansas City. The U.S.  leads its qualifying group with 10 points after five matches and needs only a draw Tuesday to guarantee the Americans a spot in the final round of regional qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Call it a movable laboratory, a testing ground of possession futbol . And Friday's petri dish, featuring the U.S. men's national soccer team, happened to be the Home Depot Center. Unfortunately, for the Americans, the dish imploded with some suspect defending in the second half against Costa Rica, a full-scale breakdown leading to defender Rodney Wallace's goal, a header, in the 65th minute, leading Costa Rica to a 1-0 win. And shortly after the lone goal, there was more imploding, in terms of temper, between the sides.

Bob Bradley, who coached the U.S. men's soccer team into the second round at the World Cup in South Africa last summer, might try to do the same thing or better at the Olympic Games in London in 2012. On Wednesday, the opening day of the national team's January camp at the Home Depot Center, Bradley said taking charge of the American Olympic squad is something that is of interest to him. "It is, it just has to fit with everything that we do," he said. "The reason that it is [appealing]

CHICAGO -- Brek Shea wasted no time giving the U.S. men's soccer team it's biggest lift on Sunday. The backup midfielder entered the CONCACAF Gold Cup championship game at Soldier Field in the 68th minute and 42 seconds later to break a soreless tie. Panama failed to answer and the U.S. secured a 1-0 triumph and its fifth Gold Cup championship in front of a largely pro-USA crowd announced at 57,920. The victory extended the Americans' winning streak to 11 games in 2013, four more than its previous best of seven in a row in 2007, the last time the Americans won a Gold Cup trophy.

The adventure is still 19 months away, too far in the future for the men's Olympic soccer tournament to register on the radar of most fans. Not so for the players who hope to make it to London in 2012. The U.S. team does not have a coach yet and the would-be Olympians have not been identified, but there are some intriguing names out there, players who will be watched closely over the coming 12 months to see whether they measure up to international standards. Some of them will even be at the Home Depot Center starting Jan. 4, when U.S. Coach Bob Bradley pulls two dozen players into camp ahead of friendly games against Chile in Carson on Jan. 22 and against Egypt in Cairo on Feb. 9. When he announced his camp roster Tuesday, Bradley included six Olympic age-eligible players.

Sometimes, the most unlikely games can turn out to be the most entertaining. That was the case Saturday night in Carson, where an experimental U.S. national soccer team, turning in a lively and sometimes surprisingly cohesive performance, came from a goal down to earn a 1-1 tie with Chile. It was the first game of the year for the U.S. and it gave the Home Depot Center crowd of 18,580 good reason to cheer. Seven players made their national team debuts for the U.S., and quite a few in the young squad of 18 did well enough to be invited back.
