It's time for the US to start playing up to its full potential. The time for experimenting and messing around is over. It's the knockout rounds where one slip up can send you home early. After an unconvincing group stage (not unlike the USWNT at the Women's World Cup) the US has a chance to really prove that they are the kings of CONCACAF.

While the Gold Cup is starting a month later than usual, the meaning for this confederation remains the same: who is the big dog between Mexico and the United States.

Maybe the other nations in this region will feel aggrieved by that statement, but the results are clear. Since the tournament's inception, Canada (in the year 2000) is the only other nation to have hoisted the Cup.
