Mapp guides U.S. to 2-0 victory

Three years away from the Big Show, also known as the World Cup, the CONCACAF Gold Cup is very much an off-Broadway production.

That’s certainly the approach the U.S. took Saturday in earning a 2-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago that all but clinched its place in the Gold Cup quarterfinals.

Goals by Brian Ching and Eddie Johnson did the trick in front of a sellout crowd at the Home Depot Center, but the player who impressed again was Justin Mapp.

  1. So John, I wonder if you ever met my nephew, he plays soccer too! (LOL)

    You guys probably don’t play in the same league, but he plays for BU. What year are you in? Villanova, Mmn…So what took you to Brown? My son is at Columbia. Brown has a great heavy weight crew team. I’m a crew mom.
