The statistics of the gold Cup tricolor are painted in various areas, from the titles won and more participations to the highest goals in the history of the competition; however, there is a place where Mexicans are not competing at the moment.
The category in question is dominated by two historic players from the United States, the team that threatens each tournament with becoming the giant of the Concacaf and translate it with results, something that during the XXI century they have been in charge of becoming a constant.
Landon donovan Y DaMarcus Beasley can boast alone being the two players with the most titles of gold Cup throughout the history of the competition, including the time when the tournament was referred to as Concacaf Nations Championship.
Donovan Y Beasley won four titles of gold Cup during their career and in all cases they did so as teammates, making them the only two players in the American litter of the 2000s who have this distinction.
The two footballers achieved it in the editions of the 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2013Therefore, in concrete terms, it can be affirmed with authority that they dominated any other rival in the area in that period of time, with the Mexican team included.
During these years, USA raised four trophies; while Mexico, the next and only chaser, got only three, so both Donovan and Beasley can boast of having dominated the Aztecs in this span, although in the balance of direct confrontations, the results are not so favorable.
Landon donovan Y DaMarcus Beasley shared the playing field in the most satisfying victory the United States has ever had in gold Cup, because in the final of 2007 they passed over their greatest rival, Mexico, in the grand finale of the tournament.
This title was of great relevance, because even before the Concacaf Nations League 2021, It was the only final for a continental title that the United States had been able to lift in front of Mexico, consecrating one of the hardest blows for the Mexican team after the elimination in the second round of the World Cup in Korea-Japan 2002.
Donovan and Beasley are at the top with four titles, followed by six footballers with three cups in their record, of which only one could reach them in this 2021 edition:
Ramon Ramirez (1993, 1996 and 1998)
Claudio Suarez (1993, 1996 and 1998)
Kasey keller (2002, 2005 and 2007)
Clint dempsey (2007, 2013 and 2017)
Andrew Saved (2011, 2015 and 2019)
Guillermo Ochoa (2009, 2015 and 2019)
Andrew Saved is the footballer who could match the records of Donovan Y Beasley if Mexico manages to win the 2021 edition of the gold Cup, an opportunity that you will not be able to have Guillermo Ochoa, because he will travel to the Tokyo Olympics.
It is this same goalkeeper who deserves another section, since ‘Memo‘could be on par with Beasley Y Donovan if in 2011 he had not tested positive for clenbuterol along with other elements of the Mexican squad, who in the end were crowned champions against the United States.
Meanwhile, the two North American soccer players have this historical record, corresponding to one of the most glorious times of the American team and that has them competing inch by inch with Mexico for the supremacy of Concacaf.
