The U.S. and Mexico face off today in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final. Today's match, which will be the second consecutive Gold Cup Final between Mexico and the States, is the first of two U.S. - Mexico clashes in a span of 17 days. The second match, which is a World Cup Qualifier, will take place on August 12th at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Today's match (2 p.m. on FSC/TeleFutura at Giants Stadium) is the third straight final for the Americans and they will be looking to take home the Gold Cup for the third time in a row. Mexico will certainly provide a tough test for the States - 'El Tri' certainly has more first teamers on their squad than the U.S. does - but no doubt Bob Bradley will have his guys ready.

My prediction? I think today is the day that Mexico beats the U.S. in America. I'll say 2-1 to 'El Tri' with the Mexicans snatching a late goal to get the win.
