The U.S. men's national team booked a spot in the 2019 Gold Cup final with a 3-1 victory over Jamaica. Goals from Weston McKennie and Christian Pulisic - sandwiched around a one hour and 28-minute weather delay – put the U.S. in control. But the Reggae Boyz fought back through Shamar Nicholson's 69th minute strike, and generated enough momentum to make an equalizer look possible. But Pulisic made the game safe in the 87th minute, pouncing another rebound – this time from a Paul Arriola shot – and the Americans spot in the final was secure. The U.S. will now face bitter rivals Mexico in the final this Sunday at Chicago's Soldier Field.
