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.

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.

Bud Selig, say hello to Jeffrey Webb. A decade ago Selig, the commissioner of baseball, addressed the flagging interest and growing irrelevance of his sport's midseason All-Star game by linking the result of the exhibition to home-field advantage in the World Series. A propaganda blitz and hundreds of millions of advertising dollars later, the idea still hasn't generated much more interest in the game. Webb, president of CONCACAF, the 41-nation Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean soccer associations, is hoping he'll have more success breathing new life into the biennial Gold Cup tournament.

For the first time since he reported late to the Galaxy after a self-imposed hiatus for mental and physical exhaustion, Donovan played a full 90 minutes in the Galaxy's 1-0 loss to the Monterrey Rayados on Wednesday night in Mexico. Monterrey won the two-leg CONCACAF tournament with a 3-1 aggregate score.

His self-imposed sabbatical over, Landon Donovan made his first appearance of the year at the Home Depot Center on Wednesday night. The Galaxy's all-time leading scorer entered as a substitute in the 63rd minute in the first game of the Galaxy's two-leg semifinal against the Monterrey Rayados of Mexico in the CONCACAF Champions League tournament. But there was nothing Donovan could do as Monterrey then got the best of the Galaxy's defensive back line and scored two late goals to win, 2-1, before a crowd of 21,745.
