Keeping It Clean Since 2005

With the 2-0 shutout last night, the U.S. extended its shutout streak in Gold Cup group play to 702 minutes spanning seven-plus matches and three tournaments. The last goal scored against the United States came in the 18th minute of the 4-1 win against Cuba on July 7, 2005, in Seattle. Goalkeepers contributing to the cause include Marcus Hahnemann and Kasey Keller (2005), Keller and Tim Howard (2007), and Troy Perkins (2009).

On the flip side, the U.S. has scored 19 goals during the shutout streak through 11 different goalscorers.

Ah, group play. I was thinking we only beat Mexico 2-1, but that was in the final.
